  • Damn! another Nano ITX board!

    Check this out...

    http://www.mini-itx.com/news/25257596/

    From Mini-ITX.com...

    VIA President Wen-Chi Chen demonstrated at a breakfast meeting a couple of weeks ago a new Nano-ITX board - the 12x12cm EPIA NL. We were on hand to take these exclusive photographs. The CN400 chipset EPIA NL will be a variant of the EPIA N board but with a lower profile, aimed at system manufacturers - very much like the EPIA MS Mini-ITX form factor board. Connectors on the NL included LVDS/DVI, SATAx2, IDEx2, TV, Audio, USB and a few we couldn't identify from our photos. Specifications may change, and of course the NL we saw had no heatsink attached. We don't expect to see this board again till CeBIT.
    No standard board connectors... Perfect for the ultimate custom install!!!

                that would be cool - but a step back, no - a giant leap back, in the progess of the wire-free office - just imagine all those cables on your desk from the keyboard!

                I would stick it in a hacked CD drive mounted to the back of an LCD monitor or summit so i can press the eject button and have it slide out sideways so I can admire it every now and then!

                EDIT: along with some old sci-fi music and flashing lights as it slides out

                            Yes and perhaps a mini-idsco ball inside the monitor housing shining out sparkles onto the board
