I believe the OP mentioned that he wanted a "case" or enclosure. I was not
aware that the cubieboard had one available.
I got a Cubieboard 2, case, and power supply from iotllc for $60.
Shipped in 2 days.
Yes, I had to 'put it together'. I had to stick the heatsink on the SOC
and snap the card into the case and screw on the cover.
If you want a case to include a drive, then you need a makerbot. Though
the Cubietruck case has room for a drive AND a battery.
