    DFI releases the new ES951 fanless embedded system equipped with the 3.5” subcompact NP951-B16C SBC. Featuring an Intel Atom N270 Processor and Intel 945GSE / ICH7M chipset with low power consumption, the ES951 is ideal for embedded computing applications requiring a compact passively-cooled platform.

    The NP951-B16C SBC features up to 2GB of system memory using one 200-pin DDR2 400/533MHz SO-DIMM, VGA display port, and 24-bit HD audio with S/PDIF I/O support. The compact embedded system is constructed of electro-galvanized cold-rolled steel and aluminum, with provision for use in wall mount or desktop applications. It is supplied with a universal 60-watt power adaptor for use with 100-240 VAC at 50-60Hz line input.

    I was just thinking the same thing. Looks like you could use it as a car PC if you had proper electrical provisions. Connectivity/expandability is limited though.

    I like DFI and all but i think this is kinda fail. You would get so much better out of purchasing and building a Zotac based system.

    from DFI, i would think they would have used a 330 and gave you a whole bunch of overclocking tools to go along with it, including a turbo button.

    you do realise that DFI originally only made business oriented motherboards? This isn't for gamers but is a replacement for their aging older platforms for places such as checkouts. Hence why theres a serial port.

    i would love one if these 3.5" computers they would be ideal for a little 24/7 server that could be easily placed in a standard computer chassis.
