Oh my. $40 is very attractive.

My only concern would be the power draw. I expect to turn this thing on,
stick it behind my cable modem and then forget about it. HP's power
specs for these devices don't mention much.

I think the APU2s would draw less power though, their specs say it to be
around 6-12W.
