    Made worse? Only 1 sound output...........

    Just think how killer that could of been with HDMI and the thingie Intel Graphics.

    Zotac are trail blaizing it would seam, but if someone can do a version of their boards for the right price ~£130 inc DC PSU. These things could sell like hot cakes as Media PCs.

    The giveaway is the GSE in the title. This means its (yeah the same 945 crap) the lower power consumption 945GSE derivative as used in the Asus EeeBox. Helluva lot better than the 945GC (22W) as my whole EeeBox uses 17W with HDD and CPU and Ram when in use.

    For me, this will do as a good NAS or low power PC. Its basically what the 945GCLF should have been in the first place.

    What we should NOW be on is the Z530 Atom pluis US15W chipset for a SUPER low power PC which can play HD media. But Intel won't and even the Ion from Nvidia is too power hungry in comparison.

    Re: News - Intel launches new nettop board

    More to the point, why go to the effort of stripping down the IO section to keep it low profile then putting a frigging PCI slot on it!

    Although I can see it appealling in a number of industrial soultions - flat panel kiosks and the like - and for business meeting rooms as a projector driver. You could even build it into a projector and have an all in one powerpoint solution! That'd be pretty natty...

    What's the chipset on the other one? presumably something better than the 945
