SBCs with GiGE

Are there any SBCs (Single Board 'Pooters) out there that are:

o compact
o cheap-ish
o Have 1 GiGE on them "for real"?

No floating point though. I really should see if I can attach a USRP to
one just for fun.

Not sure about cheap-ish, but have a look at the Toradex Robin NanoCOM
SBC & Daisy daughterboard.

I have one, very compact, cheapish at under 300 Euros?, and a quick test
today with my USRP2, running the usrp rx samples program (the one in
host/apps!), I was able to capture complex samples with a decimation of
7 with no overruns (captured into RAM, as I don’t have a hard disk and
boot from flash).

I tried an EeeBox (Z270) initially, and when it did work (very
unreliable detection of the USRP2), could only manage the occasional
reliable capture with a decimation of 128.

Just some thoughts, but I am also very interested in others experiences
with USRP2 and compact SBCs.
