If they halved the priced and slapped on HDMI I'd have been tempted..

Could have made a nice little streaming system with it.

That confused me when I first found it, too! You'd have thought there were plenty of other herbs to choose for a company name...

199usd for a bundle that expansive. How can you consider that to be steep?

Needs: HDMI / Display Port + GB Ethernet then I would consider it (even at that price).



But I'm also still waiting for availability of FM2 ITX motherboards.

i agree needs GB Ethernet, HDMI or DP (as it can be converted to HDMI any way)

with VGA and 100mb network seems silly limited due to that (ok i can let the 100mb network go as its not needed as long as stuff was encoded right, but VGA only no @ most likely 200 due to the way UK works with converting $ into but not included conversion)

Damn...for a lower price, I'd ditch my original design for my car PC and go back to what I first wanted - for the box itself to live in the dash in place of the deck that's there now. With the right size LCD screen, it could be like that Android head unit that came out a while ago, only, you know, not Android - with a decently-sized SSD, this could be a kick-ass deck.

Even at that, though, I'm kind of tempted by this anyway. I wouldn't mind picking up an RPi or two at some point, but I'd prefer something running on x86.

Yeah, it if had gigabit ethernet and I could find a way to add Sata port or 3, then it would have the power to provide a 100MB / s NAS box. But I dont see an easy way to add both these features.

No, it bloody well isn't paid for. The only people who pay for my words are the clients for which I write.

Accusations of impropriety aside, I'd be interested to hear why it reads more like an advert than any other "Company_X has launched New_Product_Y" article I've written in the last decade or so...

ASRock FM2A75M-ITX FM2 AMD A75 $90

These have been around for a bit.

Not sure why it says FM1 on the ZOTAC as it is the same chipset + FM2 as the ASRock.

Edit: MSI A85IA-E53 should be popping up soon, that's an A85 based ITX.

Hmm....

It has LVDS. So, direct connection to a monitor?


But that price tag.... Nope.
