although it's a bit bigger than your revo form factor and also a bit more
expensive. that would certainly do a BE+FE system.
i tend to buy my own hardware and build myself rather than off the shelf
stuff. cant help much more tbh.
if it's just for a FE, then i agree an atom+ion system would be ideal. not
sure there are many passive systems that you can buy, but there are plenty
of passive component level products around. both zotac and Asus have
products out. grab a case from linITX or one of the other specialist places
and away you go.
