    Looks like what you'd expect from Mini-Itx tbh, nothing special considering what we've seen from VIA over the years. (www.mini-itx.com)

    There's quite a good choice when buying Atom mini-ITX boards, but where are the ones for LGA775 and AM2+/AM3? It only seems Zotac and J&W are taking the lead on this, I wish there was more competition from other companies, as there are people out there who need something better than the Atom but in a small package.

    There are boards out there, look at www.linitx.com.

    The problem is that the smaller you shrink it, the pricier it seems to get... it must be quite challenging in comparison to an ATX (or M-ATX, which is usually almost the same layout minus a few expansion card slots) design to squeeze the power management circuitry for high wattage parts onto such a tiny area.

    That's true, but it seems there is a recent growing trend with mini-ITX systems lately. Hopefully, it will continue and become more mainstream, and of course cheaper.

    Thank Intel for the price drop on this form factor.
    Ever since it released the D201GLY for less than half the price of VIA's offerings and with a processor that actually had some power to it (compared to the C7 and C3 based boards) the price for these has dropped substantially.

    No its incredibly specail. VIA have taken a break. The first few boards like the original 800mhz one where quite good. Since then nothing really happened, the gap between these and regular desktop PC combos of the same price widened.

    I'm really looking forward to these ION boards. I'm going to put together my HTPC with these in mind
