Remember Marvell's third-gen Sheevaplug?  The newest server-in-a-wall-wart made its debut at CES 2010 last month, adding WiFi and Bluetooth along with a faster, more capable chipset.  As we saw before, the core Sheevaplug design often prompts some interesting third-party versions, and one such mini-server is Globalscale's GuruPlug Server Plus.  It takes the basics of the Sheevaplug and throws in an eSATA port, a second gigabit ethernet port and a microSD card slot.

It's the more comprehensive sibling to the standard GuruPlug Server, which gets two USB 2.0 ports and a single ethernet connection, as well as no memory card slot.  Both have a 1.2GHz processor with 512MB of RAM and various tinker-friendly ports.

The Globalscale GuruPlug Server Plus is available for preorder now, at $129, with deliveries expected to take place from April 2010.  As for the basic GuruPlug Server, that's $99 and will also begin shipping in April.
