    Wow. I can (and will) mount one of those behind my wall mounted 24in screen. Now we only need to wait for those babies to hit the retail shelves. :)

    Yeah, the Bluetooth dongle was installed when we got it, but wasn't used for anything. It was removed when the machine was being benchmarked and when the machine wasn't in use, I simply stored it there so as not to lose it.

    Looks very nice, I'd really like to get one if they're affordable...

    One thing I'd like to know but haven't heard mentioned is can it be run without the 1/0 daughterboard?

    The inability to playback 'HD' Youtube / flash content is a big problem, given this product's target market. I wonder if dropping in a dual-core atom, and taking the extra 4 watts or so on the chin, would not be a better solution for the majority of users?

    You don't need the IO daughterboard if there is power supplied to the Pico-ITX mobo (I think there's a power connector, but I can't get anyone to confirm it. It has certainly been pitched to me as something that could be no bigger than the size of a 2.5in hard drive but a bit thicker obviously.

    I actually really like the look of that, it'd fit quite nicely in the stack of routers and the like behing the telly.

    All it needs is power, ethernet, USB remote control and HDMI to the telly and its an awesomely small media center. Beats the pants off the huge ageing box I have at the mo taking up an entire shelf.

    Is there still talk of an atom dual core?
    If so, wouldn't that be the perfect match?
    I'm sure it would play HL2 :D

    I may have missed it in the article but does the 9400 support CUDA applications such as baddaboom?
