    Via Epia-V10000A
    VIA EPIA MII 10000
    VIA VB7001G C7-D 1.5GHz NanoB

    have you considered the Intel "little vally" mini-ITX boards? I use a D201GLY2A and would recommend it to anyone looking to build a mini-ITX system.

    -they are a better value than the VIA boards right now (more bang for the buck )
    -they are about half the price of the VIA boards (MP3car store sells them for $65~$75).
    -the integrated 'Core'-based Celerons are more powerful than the VIA CPUs

    good luck with your search

    FusionFanatic is right.

    I had the VIA VB7001G C7-D 1.5GHz NanoB and it lag like hell. Took it back and pickup the intel D201GLY2A and no more lagging. Alot faster too.

    The little valley is faster than the M10000, for sure. I've had both and the little valley is better and cheaper than the M10000.

    not bagging out via's but i find their mini-itx offerings for the carpc environment to be inadequate. too slow for me, i'm not running games or anything but would still like things to be fast.

    running a conroe 1.6ghz intel.
