    Hey Simon,

    If your interested, I'd highly recommend this drive for storage.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152173

    I've had one for ~1 yr now, it's very quiet, runs cool, cheap and has a decent amount of room...

    Mine's been totally reliable. Those SSD's are a nice touch, but where you gonna put your media (unless you wanna stream it all).

    Just thought I'd throw it out there...

    First time ive seen something like that

    Another thing I find funny is AMD/Intel would snipe any of our Moms on a grocery run if it meant good quarterly results, and you are forever whining about what feser did?

    153 EUR in Europe, so probably ~$175 in the US...
    And it's a pre-order price, so it might drop, who knows.

    I think is to much. $120 is more reasonable. Board looks cool tho.

    If they dropped board a bit this board would kill it as a HTPC, bluetooth,WIFI, 2x pcie, 18Wtdp and looks like it has some great chipset cooling!

    the problem is that it is for enterprise, not consumers, hence quite expensive..


    I hope other companies produce something like this. maybe zotac?

    case as heatsink, yeah! great idea.. love the compact size

    put things as external 3,5e hdd, bluray, etc. on the case and connect with e-sata, usb like as lego module

    I should be more clear that I didnt state price as fact

    but its good idea to look at PC2 price (older)

    since it is customized unit for enterprise, they could charge double or triple price

    lets hope it is cheap enough.. who knows

    Nice beepbeep, would be even cheaper with 2gb ram :O ...im still waiting for llano for a htpc though..

    ...and thats 4GB Dual Channel. For what my school does with their thin clients, I believe running 512MB/1GB of ram would even be sufficient.

    If I were to build these for my school district I'd definately stick with a single stick of 2GB ram ($20)...and I'd need to get in contact with manufacturers XD

    Say I were to personally build 120-240 of these (should be simple enough considering the PSU setup), making only $35 on each build I'd net a near instand 4 to 8k profit...and thats huge for someone like me, anyway.

    I'd just have to put ram on board, put board in case, add HDD and disk drive, connect via SATA, connect PSU, close case...slap geniune Windows sticker on side and install/test the box, install windows, run through memtest, maybe 10 passes LinX and a minute of furmark and that machine is done. ...heck I could teach a 10 year old to do that.

    They would be really nice efficient, compact full machines, wouldn't they?

    It's something I wouldn't mind running Photoshop on in Photography actually, and they should most definately be as fast or faster CPU wise as our 2.8 Ghz P4 HT builds, without the headaches of thin clients...

    If only my school district were not so retarded.... They bought I believe about 1000 HP T5710 Thin Clients back in '08...

    TWO FREE USB PORTS...AND THEY DONT FUNCTION AT ALL

    You get your little HP mouse, your HP keyboard, and your crappy 17 inch HP screen connects via VGA, with lots of lines and analog artifacts because either the thin client's signal is weak or your cable is trash.

    lol i think the teachers "head of IT" really needs to tune into these forums, Its another ball game to them lol... Yeah i'd imagine them being a pretty hand computer, light on the sources and is good enough for browsing the web, Definately better then a Intel P4
