Can you get a 4000 series APU for this board? In Australia, they are not easily obtained.

I got a 4650G from a third party reseller on Amazon delivered to Aus, works well and was packaged really well (even came with a Wraith cooler), but suspect I'd be out of luck for any warranty claim (nil issues so far though). Great CPU though, really wish we could get them through normal retail.

Yet another awesome product from AsRock that will not be available outside of China. I really want a thin ITX AMD board for a project, but don't want the hassles of buying a single item directly from a Chinese vendor.

I like it… Something different at least. I do question why they used laptop form factor memory when it seems even a slim cpu cooler is going to be taller than normal memory sticks, but maybe there will be some laptop style heat pipe solutions. Also why the 4 pin power plug if it’s using a power brick? Other than that it’d be fun to play with if you can get a hold of a 4000 apu that isn’t absurdly priced.

ASrock or some Taiwanese enthusiast brand really needs to get on a 'modular DIY laptop'. It's not like ebikes haven't made portable high-current power 'a thing' for years already /s. Thin-ITX is almost perfect as a starting point.

For the RAM, it's power consumption. Laptop DIMMs are spec'd to be lower power than desktop and server DIMMs almost universally.
As far as the 4-pin, it could be an alternative power-in like on the NUCs. Most of these DC-DC on-board PSU mobos actually take a range of voltage. The ext. adapter might be 18.5v or 19v, but the board can probably do fine with higher current draw +12V too. Which, would allow for installation into a 'normal' case, or use of an internal uSFF PSU of some variety.

[SIZE=3][FONT=arial][B]The AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 4750G APU from Amazon costs AUD 590 which is USD 456. Not what I would call a bargain. I have an Asus PN50-R7 so I know what we are missing.[/B][/FONT][/SIZE][FONT=arial][B][I][B][SIZE=3][/SIZE][/B][/I][/B][/FONT]
