Asustek P5E3: a PC on a motherboard

If you’re energy-conscious, support a large number of office drones who only need access to a limited number of applications and like the idea of saving a few bucks, you’re probably always looking for new ways to downsize the desktop PC. Sure, there are thin clients and virtual machines but you want something even smaller, cheaper and more energy efficient. Say hello to the Asustek P5E3: a Linux PC on a motherboard. This puppy boasts an Intel X38 chipset, DDR3 1800Mhz dual-channel memory support, Dual PCI Express 2.0 and 802.11n support. Additionally, it comes pre-loaded with the Splashtop Linux variant, which runs directly in your system’s (if you can call the P5E3 a “system”) RAM, allowing you to use open-source apps like Firefox and Skype sans hard drive. If your workers rely mostly on web-based applications for their daily grind, this could be an ideal solution–at least as far as the help desk is concerned.
