    Bluetooth and mini Pci-e sounds good to me.

    I think the choices here are going to get interesting.

    Only 18W - surely a passive heatsink is possible here?

    So, this is AMD's answer to Intel Atom?

    Can these be used for office usage like Excel and Word?

    All we need now is decent HTPC software that the rest of the family could use and these would fly off the shelf.

    Some ITX cases are poorly ventilated... but in a good one such as Antec ISK with two fans fitted it should be yes.

    Someone must come out with a passive design soon.

    Like the idea of the mini-PCIe, maybe for the new Intel Soda Creek SSD as a boot drive?

    If they get the passive design then I think we have the perfect MB for an HTPC

    That's what I've been thinking. That tiny heat sync is a joke, a nice heat pipe based cooler with decent amount of thin fins should be all you need.

    Well Windows Media Center is easy to use, or there is always MediaPortal, so you can even have a bunch of these a clients and all your storage and tuners in a server in another room.

    Yup, and why on earth couldn't you use it for office apps?

    Year of the Carputer me thinks, wonder how long it'll be before someone builds one of these into a double DIN headunit with motorized touch screen...

    I don't see the point of all the SATA ports if the Hudson-M1 FCH doesn't support any RAID functions.

    I have a D510 motherboard with a passive heatsink. Its TDP is only 13w but when I tried running it by itself in the case it got pretty hot, I mean it was still within spec but I wasn't comfortable with it running that hot. I just suspended a quiet 120mm fan next to the heatsink to move some air over it and it barely gets warm now. My point being even with a fairly big passive heatsink you still need some air to move over it, convection alone doesn't seem to be enough. A small fan might be plenty, I don't think it would need to spin very fast to provide enough cooling so hopefully it won't be loud...
