Utilite, a $99 quad-core ARM-based PC running Ubuntu

Recently I have been reading about the quad-core ARM-based PC running Ubuntu called Utilite. Utilite packs a single-, dual- or quad-core Freescale i.MX6 Cortex-A9 MPCore processor (up to 1.2 GHz), up to 4GB of DDR3 RAM (1066MHz), an mSATA SSD (up to 512GB), WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, HDMI 1.4 up to 1920×1200 @ 60Hz, and DVI-D up to 1920×1200 @ 60Hz, Video Processing Unit supporting multi-stream 1080p H.264, VC1, RV10, and DivX decoding, Graphics Processing Unit supporting OpenGL ES 1.1 and 2.0, OpenVG 1.1, and OpenCL EP, two Gigabit Ethernet sockets, four USB 2.0 ports, one micro-USB OTG connector, audio jacks (analog and S/PDIF), a micro-SD XD slot and two ultra-mini RS232 serial ports interfaces. All this in a chassis mesuring just 5.3 x 3.9 x 0.8 inches
ports on back

The PC can be purchased with either Ubuntu Linux or Android.

CompuLab and its resellers will start accepting orders for the little computer in August. Originally full pricing wasn't announced, with CompuLab saying only that "Utilite will be offered in several configurations starting from $99." I did find this page with Utilite models, specifications and pricing.
