I think the performance of mini PC's is so good now that I dont need to spend loads on a traditional huge case and lots of expensive large components.

My next computer is defiantly going to be a nice small one and mini itx 2.0 does look quite good.

here is a neat idea:

Mod one right into a desk (with appropriate heatsheilding) and have the screen be the desk surface. my screen of choice would likely be a wacom cintiq.

the pc would definately be top drawer and as minimalist as you can get (puns intended)

And I do hope that these motherboards are cheaper. One had to pay a lot for a Commell mini-itx-express motherboard (without CPU!!)....

mh its quiet nice, but the J&W 780G in itx-format is much hotter...

it also has 17x17cm size and also got a x16 slot...
another good thing is, that it supports up to 95W TDP "Phenoms" (so atm just the x3s), and are capable of Hybrid-CF....
all in all this is much faster than the via product...
I think it will all end up like 200 pounds for the board, 4050e, 2gig so-dimms ddr2-800 and a HD 3450...

mini-ITX will not be cheaper. You have to pay a premium for the small size. Smaller always means more expensive. Just look at laptops. Miniaturization is a difficult thing.
