Thanks iulyb,

I’ve decided to go with the APU2c2. In my experience I’ve never seem ZS memory usage over 1GB, have you ever seen more usage than 2GB on your APU2c4?

Nope ( Used RAM 601.0 MB (17.0%) 337.0 MB (9.5%) 192.0 MB (5.4%) )

I also use 32 bits kernel so max 3.2G for me, no pint for 64, that will use more memory.

So are just LED and GPIO drivers missing in ZS3.7.1?

also pcspeeker and i2c. I doubt you will need i2c

Does the wle200 work without mods?

yes but can get only N on 2.4G.

Do you find the APU2 stable?

Yes. However i added small fan that lower temperature to 48. On normal one u will have around 55. That is still ok.

Also, I’ve just used USB to boot ZS in a small PC. Considering ZS runs in memory do you see any performance (or other benefit) installing ZS to mSATA in the APU instead of USB?

In theory should not be a big difference.
