I would have liked to see at least the drive connectors (im assuming its sata I havnt seen a full spec sheet yet but the VX700 cirtainly supports it) possibly on the underside?
Wow thats small.
isnt the line of many pins on one side an IDE port?
I don't see any memory chips/expansion slots?
probably on the downside .
i cant belive the size of this! there is definatly a modding oppertunity here (and how the hell does that thing run vista!?!?!)
How many could you fit in a standard casE? It's incredible! but agreed with rowin4kicks, how on earth does such a small chip run vista?

Just the Memory is the Bottleneck.
i will buy own for a little music/ip radio box build i have planned. Only now, i will add video too!
Where are the memory slots?
As others have said, likely the underside. Knowing VIA, you'll have a SODIMM and Mini--PCI down there.
I could use this for a car mp3 player I want to build!
I had the same thought. You could fit that one in case the size of a radio.
Can anyone say DIN slot PC!!!
Now that is sexy.
why not fit one with a LCD screen in your rigs 5" bays
What ethernet does it support? 1Gb? If it does follow my idea above with an internally fitted network storage box hooked up to the main rig and the pico itx
Home made vista-esque sideshow but better!
Mod a bunch into the rear expansion slot plates and put one in each unused expansion slot - or maybe gut a few old CD-ROMs and put complete systems (including laptop or flash drives) in each 5 1/4" bay
Or better yet, skip the case and just mount the whole thing on the back of an LCD or LCD stand.
Sounds cool. Very cool.
You can see on the larger pictures:

there is something on the underside of the board.
might have to look at running one of these of a CF to IDE adapter if possible for a very small solid state video player.
OMG OMG OMG WERE IS MY TAPE?????
