I purchased two of these. One the back lighting is messed up. I am thinking they came from some University that was using them for conference rooms.
Geez you could make this one a combo Home Assistant automation server with a touchscreen display.
I am currently using another Jetway computer as a Home Assistant / Homeseer server and Oracle VB box running embedded Windows with a base OS of Ubuntu 20.04 on it.
I paid too much for them and would value them (in the shape that they are in) at around $25-$50 USD. Located here near Chicago and these came from some University in Texas (from original software running on them). I did keep the original 32Gb SSD and can image it and post it if necessary.
It usea a Jetway NF3A motherboard and a proprietary BIOS for the LCD touchscreen.
It is the faster model Intel® Atom E3827 SoC, 1.75GHz, Dual-Core, 8W TDP, with AES-NI support
- Onboard Intel ® Bay Trail Series Processor, with low power consumption never denies high performance
Support single channel DDRIIIL 1333 MHz SODIMM, up to 8GB
Support 1 * SATAII device
Onboard one full-size mSATA/ Mini-PCIE slot
Onboard one half-size Mini-PCIE slot
Onboard 2 * RJ-45 gigabit Ethernet LAN port
Integrated with 1 * 24-bit dual channel LVDS header
Support DVI-I output
Support USB 3.0 data transport demand
Support CPU Smart FAN
Compliance with ErP standard
Support Watchdog function
My upgrades here were:
1 - memory to 8Gb
2 - combo Intel WLAN / BT mini PCie card
3 - mSata - 250Gb and 32Gb for PFSense and other OS's
1 - Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 (32 bit and 64 bit).
2 - BSD PFSense
3 - Ubuntu any flavor (32 bit and 64 bit)
PFSense testing them for Starlink / T-Mobile internet using an OpenVPN tear drop which worked.
WAN ==> Starlink ==> OpenVPN Teardrop (Oracle and OpenVPN) ==> Internet access.
Here using T-Mobile Internet as a secondary internet failover connection.
I installed Windows 7 32 bit on it and upped the memory on the motherboard. (Windows 8 and Windows 10 works fine also) I also installed PFSense on it to test it. Works great with any flavor of Linux on it. Installed Kodi (Linux) on them to test and they do fine with streaming HD and HDHomerun streaming video. They do fine with Squeezeplayer and LMS on them. You can put them to sleep and use a magic packet to wake them up. (using the NIC ports on them directly but not via the POE interface).
Tested with a TP-Link Gb POE power splitter to work fine and better than the included proprietary POE device.
Originally these booted to W7 and a room meeting app on another server. There is no support from the company selling these so you are on your own.
There was / is a test program on the main drive that flashes and changes colors of the two side LED lamps. IE: these flash when first booting.
I purchased a regular PS brick for it. I added a combo WLAN / Bluetooth card for it.
It would be great to use these as PFSense boxes. I looked for a case similar to what Jetway sells and could not find one. I do have a secondary back Jetway firewall here.
There are no built in speakers on it. I did test the audio out jack to work fine. I did purchase a tiny amp and laptop speakers for it to mount inside to get some sound...
Will post pictures here of my modifications to it.
I was hoping to use it as an automation touchscreen tablet but cannot put the screen to sleep with the propietary bios. If I use a standard bios then the display does not work.
I have posted some files and manual to the motherboard linked here to Microsoft drive. NOTE: do not upgrade BIOS as the screen will not work with a standard Jetway BIOS.

I have two more Jetway computers. One is a PFSense back up and other other is a combo Ubuntu Home Assistant / Oracle VB box. Just noticed other automation box has 10 Gb NIC cards on it which is nice. (6 of them).
