    I guess you are paying for that mini ITX form factor and maybe that LVDS, what ever that LVDS connector is.

    It's the monitor connector for All in ones... for laptops too but I don't think this board is intended for those.

    What happened to Intel's AIO form factor initiative? Are those cases still being made?

    yep, if you're lucky you can find some LGA1155 thin mITX board, but those are rare and expensive, also the intel heatsink you need for those AIO is to be purchased aside.

    It isn't just the mITX form factor, it is the thin mITX form factor. That is part of the price premium.

    Too bad it doesn't at least have a 4x for an HBA card. Could have been a nice DIY NAS board.

    This isn't a very good answer to the AM1 platform.
