    Given your requirements, you would be fine with a Sproggy power supply. They're pretty small - only 150mm X 45mm X 40mm (L X W X H) and they should provide enough power for your setup (5V @ 10A, 12V @ 1.3A).
    The only trick is finding the parts. I have an extra Sproggy supply, so send me a note if you're interested.

    Mike.

    www.arisecomputer.com power supply part number ACE-865V works very well with SBC (granted extra plugs left over. I power my SBC with builtin sound running an AMD k6-3 400 64MB of ram and an ATI video card on this thing with no problems.

    my $0.02 cents (value is based on the intelligence of the person reading this message)

    what about power supplies from external cd-rom cases? How well do you think that would work in power an SBC?

    It would depend on the specific supply. I have a backpack external parallel cd-rom, and the supply it comes with is only good for about 600mA on the +5 and +12, so only enough for a CD-ROM. Because you are using an SBC and a laptop hard drive, the CD-ROM is probably the only thing which requires 12V, so you can get away with a supply with low 12V power, which is why I suggested the Sproggy supply. However, most SBCs require quite a bit of 5V (my Advantech 5862 states max 7A @ 5V), so this is the challenge. Because the Sproggy supplies 10A @ 5V, it's perfect for this application. The only reason I'm not using one is because I'm using a 3.5" hard drive which requires too much 12V power when it spins up.

    I finally got my quote back today for one of these PC/104 power supplies...$298! I think I'll stick with my Arise supply.
