    More Power Cap'n?

    Anyone using the IBase MI953F mainboard? At $400 it's not cheap. It's may not be obvious from the spec, but it's for mobile i5 and i7.

    I'm no expert, but I think you can achieve similar thermal characteristics by going with a mainstream desktop motherboard and CPU and undervolting/underclocking the CPU, for less money.

    Your probably right generally, but at a cost of some efficiency. Especially if looking at the whole system, including video.
    The gap from the best Atom to the next level seems to be a big unknown.
