    Well...that nano-ITX looks to be the shipping version of the prototype board in the CES car computer I built and posted earlier in the thread. Glad it's come to market. It was easy to work with, and stays very cool.
    • It runs off 12v directly, but for car use I'm pretty sure you should add a 12v power conditioner with auto ignition start/shutdown - mp3car has a bunch, haven't tried any myself.
    • I used the on board VGA header, just needed to move some pins around in a Lilliput VGA header kit. HDMI would have been better, but the cabling didn't fit my build.
    • For video playback, look for apps that use UVD acceleration and EVR rendering - WMP and WMC and Cyberlink are examples - this gives HD playback with low CPU utilization.
    • I got the best Windows 7 visuals on the 800x480 7" Lilliput by setting windows to 1280x720 to get everything to fit on the screen, then setting the DPI in Windows to 125 or 150 to make the fonts bigger.

    nice tips.

    Now the 1280x720 sounds like a good idea to try. I think increasing DPI will mess with a lot of RR skins, but maybe not CF's. I can't get my xenarc to accept 800x480, even though my board generate it.

    If AMD/ATI ever gets off their butt and releases quality linux support I would use these for my Mythtv Frontends. As a AMD fan it pains me when I add a new frontend buying a Atom Ion board. Can't beat nvidia's VDPAU support on linux right now. Perfect low powered silent htpc.

    I am getting close to installing other items I have into my vehicle, and had hoped to install everything in one shot, so I was curious as to when the E35MI-I might come out? I have a laptop I had planned to be the PC for my comp, but kind of ran into a problem with one of the programs I had intended to utilize on the system, so I thought maybe I should just do a ground-up install.

    I haven't been able to find anywhere that is selling any of these systems yet, soooooo yea, anyone know of an ETA?

    I've found another site that you can order a similar motherboard for @$299.00 USD and 45.00 USD delivery.
    The site is a little confusing, states board is Mini-ITX, but shows picture with Micrometer showing 12 CM, Nano-ITX, Mini-ITX is 17 CM
    The board shows a 24 Bit LVDS+2*VGA+2*HDMI video output and up to 4 GB DDR3 SODIMM memory, (A).
    You can also get the same board but with 1*HDMI+1*VGA for $236.84 USD and $45.00 USD EMS delivery,(F).
    Emailed the supplier, got back info on CPU used, both boards using AMD Embedded Model T56N, Clock Speed 1.6GHz,Cores 2, Cache L1:64KB L2:512KBx2,Graphics AMD Radion HD6310,DDR3 Speed DDR3-1066,Max TDP 18W

    These are early reports of suppliers for Nano ITX AMD Fusion motherboards, I would like to see more well known manufactures, Asus/Asrock, Gigabyte or Jetway come out with their versions, more manufacturers, lower price, lower cost to build your own Double Din Car Computer.
    Intel is reported to be on the verge of releasing a replacement for the Atom, hope Nano ITX motherboards become the norm for embedded APUs.

    Found a couple more things in my research:

    They refer to this as the E35M1-I (M...#1...dash...Letter I)

    Newegg has the miniITX boards from Gigabyte, MSI and ASUS on their promotions page.
