Check Point 750 - see inside!

Hi everyone! This will be a quick write up covering physical aspects of a Check Point 750. And let's face it, you want to know what's on under the case right? Who wouldn't?!?!

I won't bother with packing material, but this is the box, just like all the other pics show.

Here is the front:

And here is the back:

6 x 10/100/1000 ports on a switch + WAN and DMZ ports.
802.11 b/g/n/ac MIMO 3x3, 1 radio band: 2.4Ghz/5Ghz
2 Console ports - 1 rj45 serial port and one usb port for console.

Here are all the cables it comes with:

Note: the black rectangle is a USB -> Mini USB Console Cable.
Basically, you can use this to console into the device if you for some reason
don't already own 3 to 5 USB -> 9pin serial converts.
You may need to download drivers from checkpoint to get it working.
I'll stick with my usb console cable because it has leds and blinky lights are fun!

Here is a picture with the Antenna properly installed. 

Why did it come with an extra one?

That might not be right, I'll have to do some research on that.

Now comes the hard part. How do we open this?
As it turns out, it's a highly complicated process involving up to two screws:

Ok screws are off. The top of the case should slide forward and lift off. Now we can see the sexy hardware on the inside!



.... Oh no! It's too sexy!

Ok, remove that last bit and this is what we have.
Here is a close up of the left side of the motherboard:

And here is the right:

Not much to see really. I want to take that heat sink off but the chicken is great with this one.

Oh, I should have listed what is on the inside.

ARMv7 Processor rev 4 (v7l) (Two cores)
1GB of ram
Not sure how big the storage is yet. I'll update with info.
Busybox 1.8.1
Linux Optix-700 3.10.20-al-5.0-pr2 (haven't check if this changed with R77.20 hfa 20).

I'll follow this up with some software info shortly.
