We've had success with the same GX models over and over, but as Brian
said, there are major changes between the GX models. GX-270's for
example introduced SATA, a newer intel chipset, etc. The only time I
can recall a change within a model line was with the GX-240's when
they updated the ethernet chipset to include gigabit support, however
the drivers didn't change.
You can't expect an image for a GX-240 to work on a GX-60, they're
radically different beasts. But, an image for GX-240 should work with
The only caveat would be if you added different video/sound/etc cards
which would change the stock configuration. We add video cards
because getting the DMT on-board video cards to play nice with XFree86
used to be a chore.
BTW, has anyone picked up a GX-280 yet? What's different?
