    After seeing some of the nano stuff I've been wondering why a Motherboard hasn't been released with a built in low power cpu that can piggyback off of the IO etc. in the main system


    Isn't salad what food eats??

    I'm not sure I'd want a pc built into my heatsink like that; it can't be good for cooling performance. That said I would be tempted by something like this to fit into a spare 5.25" drive bay. I've only seen pico-itx boards from Via before and they've been underpowered, the Bobcat cores in this should have a bit more grunt.

    Forget fitting it into a computer.I would have it sitting on the desk - computer cases are so yesterday!
