    MSI Industrial GM965 Core 2 Duo Mobile Mini-ITX Mainboard

    This should interest quite a few people!

    In the past few weeks, a new mini-ITX Socket P motherboard was introduced, which will make it much easier for upgrading with Intel's future processors (and it's cheaper for a socket P processor). I just purchased the Core 2 Duo T7300 from newegg, along with this MB from logicsupply.

    Nice looking board, with a good feaure-set. Thanx for the heads-up! My LV-677 could certainly have done with a few more onboard USB ports

    No...That's the only drawback I could see. I guess that just keeps from being able to use a PCMCIA slot for extra USB 2.0 ports (but the board supports 8), a PCMCIA broadband modem, or a sound card.

    The positives definitely outweighed the negatives for me, especially being a socket P. Also important to note are that the built-in audio and video are excellent, and there is a PCI-E slot built in, so it's not like expandability is impossible.

    Interesting. Will mp3.com be selling CarPCs with this mobo installed and if so, ETA?

    I wonder if I could get XenarcDirect to put it in my SC-10...

    @ RedGTiVR6: You may want to add the new Commell LS-372 to your list, it is a very nice, and compact 3.5" Socket-P board.

    It will be available mid-October, according to one industrial supplier in Australia.

    I'm going to try and keep this thread for mITX only. We can start another thread for other form factors if we have enough of them.

    On page one the Kino 9452 isn't a 755 socket, I'm pretty sure it's an M looking at the photo.
