    Lightbulb Multimedia Motherboard /NO OS REQUIRED

    This board sounds awesome, could have a great application in car.
    If only we could get ahold of something like this in the mini-itx form factor.

    It's not even a Micro-ATX one.

    Oh well, it almost defeats the purpose of customization.

    There was one already announced on a Epia-M board, I'm not sure if it ever made it to production. But the BIOS would have been incompatible with retail Epia boards so you would have had to buy the whole setup for it to work.

    I have this feature on my mini-ATX A-Open motherboard in my car. http://usa.aopen.com/products/mb/MK79G-N.htm

    I never actually use it cause I don't have a CD-Rom on my car and it doesn't do MP3's.

    It's not really all that useful cause you still have to wait for the BIOS to boot, which is ~10 seconds. On my system I could be returned from standby in the same time it takes to use this feature.
