had an article about the Loongson Fulong computer recently, describing it as a not so stellar computer. It is going to be more expensive that it should be, considering the amount of power it puts out. With much cheaper alternatives like the intel little valley d201gly, energy prices will have to rise quite a bit to make it worthwhile to use the loongsong. Another alternative are Geode LX700 and LX800 system boards. These chips are x86 compatible and only consume a trickle of power. For example, the ALIX only consumes 5 watts of power. The VIA C7 is also x86 compatible and another good choice.
