    It has sound, usb, lan built in, has support for pretty much everything including SATA and RAID this is a really fully featured board, you really don't give up anything in terms of features for the size. Also has wires with PS/2 and extra USB. See the manual on the store page for everything else.

    You can power it with a standard power supply, it comes with an adaptor for it.

    I just picked one up today when I was dropping stuff off at the mp3car store. It is freakin expensive, but they are very well equipped. I'm actually impressed by the speed. It has real decent 3D performance. Runs DivX videos fine, mp3s, navigation no problem. Its comparable to the SP13000 I have, I think it is a bit slower, but not by much. I'm going to have absoluty no problem replacing my SP13000 with it.

    It is actively cooled, but I don't think it really needs to be. It has a heat sink that takes up half the board and the heat sink has stayed cool to the touch for the past hour running it at full tilt.

    Ouch. I'm okay with the speed, but the price... You can get some nice SBCs for cheaper. Oh well, hopefully the price'll come down significantly in the future, particularly if this thing is supposed to compete with embedded systems.

    My nano board arrived from Armen of digitalww at the post office late yesterday afternoon, going to pick it up today after work

    I am powering it through a M1 atx power supply, you need a ATX - > nano itx power cable adapter

    so any ATX power supply will be able to power it as long as you have the adapter

    I am going to try install the entire pc / power / supply / slot load dvd and creative usb sound card in an old CD rom case
    Nano ITX / 512 MB / 60 GB / Panasonic slot load / M1-ATX / Bu303 / Sound blaster 24 / PPi amps / rockford sub

    Hmmm.... I'm thinking of picking one up to try out..... Let me think about it for a few days, if they're not out of stock by then I'll get one...

    I'm afraid of being stuck with the thing if it isnt quick enough for me (I;m going to take a big hit if it isnt useful for me and I want to sell it once its already readily available)..... oh well, decisions, decisions.... these Via boards dont have any problem with stuff like DivX, Destinator, MP3? What about bootup times for windows? what is the main difficulties of these boards?

    It has a mini-pci slot, not a pci one. It comes with 2 onboard USB, and 4 more that can be connected via headers.

    Boot times on an unoptimized windows XP are about the same as my SP13000. 45 seconds for full boot, 30 seconds from hibernate.

    The only real reasons why you should get a VIA Mini-ITX board over the NANO:
    1. Money
    2. You absolutly must have a regular PCI slot

    I think the speed differenece are negligible and except for the regular PCI slot and built in serial port, the NANO has all the same features as the SP13000.
