    Shame the iPartner looks so ugly and has such a small screen, that could be an amazing idea.
    Is there any point to having the 128MB frame buffer though? Its not like you are going to be gaming on it (that's what the x16 slot is for) and they are fine with HD movies without it.

    At last, a well-featured mini-ITX board... and a PCI-Express x16 slot to boot!

    Very nice. Very nice. Use of SO-DIMMs isn't a serious issue, and the idea of a mid/high-end graphics card in a min-ITX board... :naughty:

    What's the point in making it external? Just seems like a waste of ABS

    Looks like that might be the perfect HTPC setup right there. Good hardware video acceleration thanks to the IGP, nearly silent operation if you choose the right processor and heatsink, and the ability to make it a decent gaming system with the inclusion of the PCI-E x16 slot. Sign me up!

    I love it. The price is going to be astronomical, based on the prices of normal mini-itx mobos...

    This would be the perfect desktop companion to my EeePC. A quad-core phenom, along with a 3870 X2 (which would look ridiculous) and 4gb of RAM in a PC the size of a shoebox would be wonderful.


    EDIT: Fudzilla.com (never heard of them) says it should retail for £90. This is amazing. :D
