    It looks good.
    The only thing that I can't find anywhere is the power requirement.
    It's more than likely an external power-brick type of connector, so it's very likley that a regulator like one of the Carnetix units (likely, the P1900) will work well for this setup.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

      It does look good. I note the following:

      1) It's smaller than a single-din slot!
      2) It's DVI video, so you'd need a DVI to VGA adaptor to use most touchscreens
      3) All expansion must be via USB (not an issue for most)

      Nice find.

        It does look nice, but the problem I have is what heppens when the motherboard dies? That is why it is nice though more of a hassle and expensive to build your own, though it seems no one wants to get into the market seriously besides VIA at the moment.

          1) true

          2) true

          3) not true, check the mobo, they have serial and parallel ports connectios on the mobo, just not on the outside of the comp

            in terms of what?

            making mini-itx motherboards? or making mini-itx motherboards that have embedded processors?

                Probably not a knock-off, but an OEM resale...

                  I don't care what it is, it is nice. Price is the only thing. But those who are willing to pay for a small setup, probably come to about 1/2 that price DIYing it. Add in advertising and profit, and it is not a total ripoff if you want a warranty, and don't want to build it yourself.

                  Nice find.
