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.

How is "gaming machine" in the embedded market?

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.
