Good question... the dimensions and shipping weight are different. The transistors are also different between the two. Other then that, I can't really see a difference, but I'm sure there is one.

What is a good motherboard to go with the 3600?
I already have an external HD where I keep most of my files so there is no need for additional HDs.

And no games will ever be played on it.

After a little searching, the D in DS3L stands for the Ultra-Durable feature. So the S3L ovbiously doesn't have Ultra-Durable. My question is though, does the DS3L have the same overclocking capabilities as the DS3R? And is that Ultra-Durable really something?...or just a gimmick?
