The first ARM processors were used in Acorn Archimedes computers. If I 
was to buy an ethernet podule for my old A7000, it would certainly be 
capable of doing all of the above, and so I would have to agree that the 
statement was extremely sweping and most definitely inaccurate! :-) It 
only has a ~1GB drive at the moment (IIRC), but I certainly could add in 
a larger one if I needed to.
