OK, I'm in the UK as are these people I buy from, but they do prices in 
dollars as well as pounds and euros, and will ship to the US. They don't 
have a 2d13 at the moment but do have 2d3s in stock (the 2d13 has a 
battery and RTC extra, that's all).

They've got enclosures, but the power supplies are european plugs. 
However, they are universal (100-250V), so an EU->US adapter would work. 
I use a SanDisk CF card in mine, and the pfSense install worked like a 
dream. The only wrinkle is remembering to change the serial line speed 
from 19200 to 9600 baud before installing pfSense, as the serial 
bootloader likes 9600.

I'd recommend getting "pfSense: The Definite Guide" as well
