Whee!

I'll be "that guy" who sticks FreeBSD on it and then complains (but not 
loudly, since there's still Linux to fall back on) if it doesn't work all 
right.

The shopping process seems to wobble back and forth between English and 
Spanish, which may be a little off-putting for shoppers outside of the Iberian 
peninsula (we're already stuck with higher shipping charges).

But other than that: for .nl, pretty good specs for a pretty good price, and 
lovely to have some vetted hardware with a cool logo on it.
