The HP T5730 I have (model: HSTNC-003-TC) was manufactured in March 2009. When I first unpacked it it seemed a little large to me. In fact this is an optical illusion(!) and it's almost the same size as the Neoware Capio 620. The photograph on the right shows it with a Neoware Capio and Wyse SX0 for comparison.

The embedded operating system is Windows XPe sp3.
The T5730 has two concealed USB slots under the top cover. These can be seen in the photograph below.
For those to whom it matters here is some detail from Linux's /proc/cpuinfo
vendor_id : AuthenticAMD cpu family : 15 model : 108 model name : Mobile AMD Sempron(tm) Processor 2100+ stepping : 2
The unit requires a 12V supply. The coax connector is 5.5mm/2.1mm.
Flash: The Flash memory (top left in the photograph) is easily replaceable. It's a DOM plugged into a standard 44-pin IDE connector.
RAM: The RAM is a standard 200-pin SODIMM. The one fitted is manufactured by hynix and is marked: PC2-5300S-555-12. The part number is HYMP112S64CP6-Y5. (It's a DDR2 667MHz SODIMM).
CPU:. Tom Williams emailed me about the possibility of overclocking the CPU - something I didn't think was possible. However he persevered and emailed me again in June 2011 about this. Subsequently a chap called MoMo joined in. You'll find all this under the mods tab.
Compact Flash:. It turns out there is space on the reverse side of the circuit board for fitting a Compact Flash socket. You'll find this under the mods tab as well.
PCI-e: The board carries what looks like a PCI or PCI-e slot. This is used by the expansion module and is not a standard PCI-e connector. However, an email I received about the t610 showed that in some models at least the pin-out of the socket starts off as a genuine PCI-e socket. The HP data sheet for the t5730 says "PCI-e x1 with the optional expansion module". So it is possible that pins 1-18 offer a standard PCI-e x1 socket in a similar way to the x4 socket that Al found on the t610. I haven't yet checked this but will do so in due course.
