Hmm, I'm not impressed when they hide the specifications.
Specifically, what CPUs are inside? THEY DON'T SAY!
My guess is because they're using low wattage Via nehemiah processor?
If so, it'd be great for web serving, and terrible for math heavy rendering.

The low wattage is a big clue. They also mention "1.4 GHz". It would
be great if these were Intel P-M's, but that's unlikely.
The other possibility is low-wattage Opterons. Now THAT would be sweet!
But http://www.amdboard.com/opteron_low_power.html

But if they're using good CPU's like the Opteron, why not brag about it?
