I am using a Jetway Intel Celeron N2930 to run OPNSense (2.5 months 
running so far so not a real long test) so it should run regular FreeBSD 
however its going to run around $300 by the time you add memory and disk 
of some sort, using an 30G mSATA with my install. This was a replacement 
to a PCEngines APU1D4 which had problems with the crappy real tech 
interfaces and has been a solid replacement with much better performing 
2 x Intel 1G NICs so far.
