OLE Nepal is using MSI pre-configured purchased through a local
distributor. I have not seen the box they are using
at Amazon or Newegg. It is essentially the same as the other MSI
Nettops, except in a smaller form factor and taking
only 2.5" notebook drives.
The one you linked to is the one I am using. So far the two I have
purchased have worked well; however, the second
one has trouble with the two usb 3 ports (at 1TB, usb 2 takes 12+ hours
The Corsair memory has a better price, but Crucial may be your
preference. Make sure you get DDR3 notebook memory (not desktop - they
are not interchangeable).
I have had good luck with the Western Digital Blue 2.5in 1TB drive
($75.25 at Amazon).
So the budget would be:
Zotac ZBox 192.99
Crucial 2x2GB 46.99
WD 1TB 75.25
