I proudly present the S-CUBE. The third generation of a device that I call my "Home Entertainment PC Based All Purpose Machine". The first and the second one were based on a huge PIII shuttle motherboard and those were called the SBOX I and SBOX II.
The main objective for all of them was to not expend too much money so I used old hardware that I already had. The EPIA M was a new acquisition because size was my second objective for this project. It’s a really amazing little lady.
