To me it is unsuitable for a FreedomBox: It lacks ethernet.

Adding USB-based ethernet is not an option IMO: Quality of that is bad. 
We have plenty of good options, so I see no reason to consider bad ones.

How do you find this option better than (or on par with) the 59 
currently at <https://wiki.debian.org/FreedomBox/TargetedHardware>?

Is it that architecture is AMD64?  Is it the confidence that Intel is a 
big company?  Is it the form factor?  Or perhaps you see it as a 
_benefit_ that it does not include ethernet?  Why do you suggest it?

 - Jonas


Also, I have not yet seen this device generally for sale anywhere.
