The Fit-PC is very close in specs to the XO-1. I have one which I use
as a firewall/gateway. It has similar limitations to the XO especially
WRT memory. The Fit-PC2i looks interesting as it re-introducing the
second ethernet port and can have more ram. It also has wifi so you
can have a WAN port, a LAN port as well as using it as a wifi AP.
