The dimensions for this enclosure are 26.4 x 22.9 x 11.2 cm. Below are a few inside shots of this enclosure.

The ZaReason Ion Breeze 3770 was loaded up with Ubuntu 9.04 (x86_64), which means the Linux 2.6.28 kernel, GNOME 2.26.1, X Server 1.6.0, GCC 4.3.3, and used an EXT3 file-system. ZaReason installed the NVIDIA 180.60 proprietary driver to be able to take full advantage of the GeForce 9400M GPU. Zotac manufactures the motherboard that ZaReason uses in this system, and it had worked fine with Linux, but there was no LM_Sensors support in Ubuntu 9.04 with this hardware. Unlike the spins of Ubuntu that are installed by some of the other Linux-friendly manufacturers, there are no major changes

While we have already extensively benchmarked the NVIDIA ION graphics under Linux, in this article we have benchmarks showing off the rest of the system. We continued to compare the NVIDIA Ion Breeze 3770 performance against a system using a Jetway NC92 motherboard with an Intel Atom 230 processor, 2GB of DDR2 memory, a 300GB Seagate ST3300622AS SATA 2.0 hard drive, and Intel 945 graphics. On the software side it was running Ubuntu 9.04 x86_64 with the same set of packages.

The Phoronix Test Suite was used for benchmarking with the LAME MP3 encoding, Ogg encoding, FFmpeg, 7-Zip compression, LZMA compression, SQLite, PostgreSQL pgbench, OpenSSL, GnuPG, C-Ray, Crafty, and dcraw.
