Hmm; I thought that the S10 was the most basic version :)

Processor:     AMD Geode GX 366MHz
Memory:     0 Flash/128MB RAM

As the S50 reads:
Processor:     AMD Geode GX 366MHz
Memory:     128MB Flash/256MB RAM

btw they use a gx in the spec instead of gx2; odd.

The S30 lists the same btw:

Processor:     AMD Geode GX 366MHz
Memory:     64MB Flash/128MB RAM

So besides the tool outputs etc etc I posted earlier; I'll take loads of
pics. Do I need to pry off the CPU's heatsink for a pic of that? Since I
don't know how to best re-attach it; id' like to postpone that.

Also not having a GX VSA is kinda really off-putting; it basically means
I can't use corebios on this thing yet? How did people do it on the S30
and more specifically the S50? The S50 does list as being supported, how?
