holy crap that thing is small.

DVI, sata, PCI-E 1x (but what card would fit?)

The only flaw i find, is that it would have been far better to replace that DVI port, with a HDMI port - the HDMI audio would be a benefit, cutting down cable clutter when paired with a screen with speakers. (not to mention the HDMI port is smaller, and that things got a space premium if i ever saw one)

But will it be able to run movies at high resolutions for a long time?

Whats price ?

My opinion at this point hinges completely on what it will cost - If its cheap enough it looks awesome.

No one likes using real IGPs with the atom.....


Also, the PCI-E slot could be for a SSD like the EeePCs have.

it might come with an adapter to HDMI and the adapters includes audio as well (if the dvi supports it)

so far only ATI do that, so its unlikely. Intels HDMI has audio, but has to be a native connector.

not only ati nVidia as well (you just need an audio loop cable, spidif or whatever you wana call it)

its over 50x faster at rendering web pages than high schoolers with a crayon. Slightly better color accuracy too.

but compare it with a 9600GT which is over 100000x faster than university studens with colour pencils...

common now, these solutions are not gamers cards, but what onboard ever really is?

I have found that the SIS onboard offers better perf then intels onboard, as well as better rendering perf(as in movies) when compared with nvidia and intels older solutions.

the current choices for an intel based system like this are pretty slim, I honestly am SHOCKED to see that intel let SiS make a chipset for their cpu's with all the work they have been doing to prevent that on the i7/i5 side of things.

and this thing looks kool, BUT its to damn small, must just be for net surfing and watching movies online, would be great if you set it up properly with something like vector linux(light weight and easy to use) and just used it for a new/video box....

as to the HDMI, it would requier a diffrent chipset to add audio support AFIK, no biggie to me, your not going to be using something like this to play 1080p/i movies are you?

Yes. i would.

Do you have any idea how epically awesome this would be, attached to vesa mounts on the back of my 24", or hiding behind my 40" with a cordless keyboard like my dinovo edge? its tiny, its silent, its low power... its EXACTLY what you want from a media PC!
