    Soo, new kids on the block from asus & zotac on the Mini-ITX scene:

    -Intel GMA 3150
    -5.1 HD audio (NM10 Express)
    -2x DDR2 DIMM
    -2x SATA-300
    -1x PCI
    -passive cooling



    AT3IONT-I and AT3IONT-I Deluxe

    Facelift on AT3N7A-I, with PCI Express x16 (!!!) and passive cooling

    Deluxe comes with remote and a 90W power supply adapter



    Zotac H55-ITX WiFi

    A beefier solution from zotac:
    -LGA1156 slot
    -H55 bridge

    Oh man... I want to sell my old ION and get that asus now. The Pine-Trail Atom is going to run a lot more efficiently.

    First it's cool, but suddenly: "OMFG! LPT connector in 2010!!!"

    Even ASUS does strange (stupid) things:
    As I said in my worklog, I have 30 nettops with AT3N7A-I.
    Problem: VGA connector is above the SPDIF.
    So when you plug it hard (or if you push the pc to the wall accidentally)
    you can brake off the connector and ruin the mobo!

    I can tell you, that the Zotac board will have the same problem with the DVI connector

    If you don't depend on PCI or especially if you want to go with a PCIe
    device (asus xonar hdav 1.3 for example), they are better.

    Well, the AT3IONT-I is a facelift on the Asus AT3N7A-I you linked,
    with PCIe instead of PCI, passive cooling instead of active, etc.
    Best for HTPC or for carPC with heavy multimedia.

    Asus AT5NM10-I is almost the same, but it has the new Intel Pine Trail-D
    technology, lower power consumption, at the cost of inferior multimedia
    (no fancy geforce, HDMI, 7.1). Best for general carPC use, you can add
    a sound card or a video card later, as it has PCIe too.

    Zotac H55-ITX WiFi is a bit different, it doesn't have an integrated Intel Atom
    onboard, but you can add an Intel i5 or i7 to it. It's useful, if you want to
    make small pc for gaming, or a beefy HTPC, go with this. A bit power hungry
    for a carPC, but if you've got a V8, it does not matter

    Does this work with Linux? I didn't see it on the alsa-matrix page, but i may have overlooked it.

    I think it works with C-Media 8788 driver. See this link.

    I picked up a pinetrail based netbook at bestbuy (atom 450). The advantages are it has the gpu built into the cpu and a much more effecient chipset. That means it draws less power. Also having the gpu in the cpu reduces latency and improves bandwidth resulting in increased performance. As for a pinetrail based ION, i don't think they are released yet.
