Some commercial off the shelf products approach the design requirements for
FreedomBox. For example, the FoxConn nT535 -

addition of a 2.5" SATA drive, a single stick of  ddr3 800 4GB so-dimm
memory and a USB-Ethernet adapter would get you going (~$300 total). Not too
much wizardry required to do battery/solar instead of the brick.

A base Linux install + tasksel would get a core set of servers going.

Lots of other issues. Getting as close as we can with available resources
would accelerate the time line. How many of the "complications" are really
necessary? At what cost should they be indulged?
