      If that widest (the connector plane) side fits inside the width of a Din enclosure, you could easily squeeze that and a Laptop HDD, and slot DVD, + a decent naked PSU inside a single din box, and maybe even fit the screen for a din and a half/ 2 din..

          very, very, very nice...
          I they did a version with more ethernet, possibly a PCMCIA connector too, but without having to stack another board on top of it.

            The best thing is this core running full speed only requires a mere 11 watts.
