Compact flash card slots.

Some people dont use hard drives, they put the Operating systems on Compact Flash cards.

Wow. 400+ bucks. Too pricey. I would probably buy one if it was half that price like the Desktop ATX versions of the 479 motherboards.

They have SFF mobos for $99 and up. The newer ones use DDR2 and have gigabitLan.

However they arent crazy gamers yet (only PCI slot,no agp or PCIX16 yet)

I think the point of this unit is the pci-e slot. It's not really meant to be a mac mini kind of a unit. It could be, but there are better boards for that. This is for a tiny, portable machine that can game.

DC farm, anyone? even if it is similar to a macmini, it'd be much easier to make a farm of... a very small, very powerful, very efficient farm. and very expensive. very very expensive.
