Just picked up an IGEL 3/2 thin client, low power computer from Surplus By Design.
It doesn’t have much in the way of specs, but it should be enough to run a basic server for backups and playing around with Linux.
Finding information on these machines isn’t easy (they’ve been end-of-life’d), so I’ll put everything I’ve found into this post. Maybe it will help some other poor soul.
- 400MHz Via Eden processor
- 128MB SD-RAM in a SODIMM package (512MB maximum supported)
- 3 USB 2.0 ports (one front, two rear)
- 10/100 LAN onboard
- VGA D-Sub connector attached to onboard S3 Savage4 graphics chip (8MB)
- PS/2 mouse and keyboard ports
- Compact Flash header (internal) with maximum 1GB CF card
- Smart card reader (internal)
- 1 X Stereo output and 1 X Microphone input
- 1 X Parallel port (DB-25)
- 1 X Serial port (DB-9)
Supported Operating Systems:
- Damn Small Linux
- (more to follow)
- Identifying models can be a bit difficult; the unit itself will have a marking like “IGEL 3/2” but the company uses a different naming scheme in their documentation and support
- IGEL 3/2 is officially known as the IGEL 364 LX or IGEL 364 Compact
