    ^ last matx one does look like a gigabyte. Hopefully the prices are competitive. Around $60 for the a55-itx would be sweet.

    I wonder when that A75-ITX model will hit the shelves. Be careful, I searched for "Zotac A75-ITX WiFi" and realized that I was browsing the old FM1 model. Even if you add FM2 to the search, the second link is for the TPU review of the FM1 model ...
