Crazy Dogmatic Bullsh!t!
LOL@'High performance' its 'high performance' in terms of netbook/nettop standard. (better then a certain manufacturers efforts that was listed on the front page not long ago)

the D-series Atom processors look really good on paper. DDR3 Controller, ability to see 4Gb Ram = Epic Win.

D series might not break any crunching or speed records but Its what Netbook processor SHOULD be.

I look forward to seeing some more info

Typical PR, I don't see why you need to really make a comment on it...

That tall cooler kind of would make it a dilemma for this to be installed in anything 1U height.

Good spot on the cooler. I also dont like an ethernet RJ45 stuck on top of USB. Makes the USB inaccessible... why didnt they double the RJ45 port. Would make for neater cabling too.

Or are those eSATAs? If so, why no mention? LOL

I dont like the upright SODIMMs, for 1UE reasons again. Nor do I like the location of the (just 3) SATAs.

i prefer this x or this x
