Seemed to have lost the ability to google these things!

USB3 I'm assuming, rather than SATA? What budget are you looking at?
Because for the money, the HP MicroServer's do take a bit of beating for
an x86_64 platform, and there are few ARM processors with USB3
backplanes as yet.

Otherwise, if you really don't care for bandwidth - there's an R-PI ;)

PS. North Devon folks .. we got a meeting this month? Sorry I couldn't
make it to last - work drama :(

I was hoping for well under Â100 - I'm using a pi -zero at the moment and while it runs pretty well IO is getting to be a concern. I'd love a Pi3 with decent IO but that seems to cost Â100 more for no reason!

My other suggestion would be to knock up a cheapish Intel Celery Dual-core ITX board in a cube ITX-type case, 2GB RAM, HDD .. of ya go .. should be ~Â100 all-in. Have done a couple of these for print servers/etc with a J1800 board but I think these were superseded.
