ECS LIVA Mini Box QC710 technical details

(revised )

Microsoft is now selling a ECS LIVA Mini Box QC710 Desktop PC in its Store to facilitate Windows on ARM development. (You may remember this machine by its former name--the Snapdragon Development Kit.)

Unfortunately, there isn't a lot of information on the Internet about this machine in one spot and the manufacturer is not very forthcoming with information. So I ordered one and opened it up, so you don't have to.
