It has not come out yet but it seems one could install eCS onto it. Could one install eCS via an USB disc drive or is there a way to use an USB flash drive to install it from?  ???

It would be neat to see an eCS 'skin' on it.  ;D
"Sapphire will load the Edge-HD3 with FreeDOS software, but it also supports Windows 7 or other operating systems." I think it is cool that they add the 'or other operating systems' part.

It would be neat if the Isostick is reasonably priced so one could try installing eCS with it (like installing it on this type of computer).

The biggest problem would be drivers and without full specs it is hard to say if it would work.

You could buy one when it becomes available and do the tests and then report back to us.

If the price is reasonable, I will buy one. It looks really neat (neat if one could create a 'skin' for it using the eCS logo  ;D ).  8)

Geek Gadgets. I wonder why they chose FreeDOS?
"The Edge-HD3 Mini PC is equipped with a 1.65GHz AMD E-450 APU with integrated Radeon HD 6320 graphics, supported by 4GB of RAM. Together with storage options for 250GB, 320GB and 500GB capacities, as well as Gigabit Ethernet, built-in Wireless N connectivity, HDMI and a pair of USB 3.0 ports.

The Sapphire AMD Fusion-Powered Edge-HD3 Mini PC measures just 193mm x 148mm x 22mm in size and weighs 1.2 pounds, and will come loaded with FreeDOS software, but will also support Windows 7 and other operating systems."
It has some interesting specifics.  8)

its possible to install OS/2 or eCS with a USB CD-ROM drive, the install with a flash drive is also possible in theory.
