MSI, one of the world leaders in motherboards, debuts its first Intel Bay Trail based Mini-ITX motherboard, the MSI J1800I. With a rich feature set and new onboard 22 nm Dual Core Intel Celeron Processor J1800 with Intel HD graphics, the MSI J1800I is the perfect solution for multimedia systems. The MSI J1800I motherboard is designed for ultra-low power consumption with its SOC using only 10w. Featuring a passive cooling solution, the MSI J1800I not only runs cool & efficient, but also noiseless.

The perfect HTPC solution
The MSI J1800I motherboard features a wide variety of multimedia solutions such as H.264 hardware decoding, support for 1080p video, Blu-ray playback and 8-channel HD Audio through HDMI. The J1800I also features two DDR3-1333 SO-DIMM slots (up to 8 GB Dual Channel Memory), two SATA 3 Gb/s ports, one PCIe slot, Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0 and HDMI 1.4a output. All this comes in a ultra-low power, all passive cooling, small form factor design. This makes the MSI J1800I the ideal motherboard for office or livingroom use.





Military Class 4: The Most Stable Military Class Components
Military Class 4 is the next step in high quality components. The Hi-c Cap, SFC and Solid CAPs ensure your PC runs stable under extreme conditions. These key components have all passed the tests of MIL-STND-810G standard class which are performed by independent laboratory to ensure stable operation in the harshest environments.

Military Class Essentials
The core of Military Class 4 is based on the essentials which increase your stability in the worst conditions. Humidity protection and high temperature protection ensure system stability in each environment, no matter what. The new structure of the PCB limits EMI emission. On top of that, all connectors have ESD protection in order to prevent short-circuiting.

wish they would throw an extra 1gb nic on there, but still this is tempting me to build a new htpc :)

"The perfect HTPC solution?"

I don't think that word means what you think it means. Why exactly do I say this; Windows 8 or 8.1, and two SATA connections. Both of the OSs were designed with a touch screen in mind. If your TV needs to be that close to you, you need glasses. Media centers generally require an OS, storage, and a disc drive. That's either compressing one HDD into a two-partitioned monstrosity or giving up on physical media. Neither of which sounds "perfect" to me.

Joking aside, this isn't bad. I'm wary of any rebranded Atom processor, but the "upgrade" to Celeron processors isn't too much of a killer here. This seems to be a decent setup for a media center, if not really capable of playing any strenuous games. I'm digging the potential for a small laptop drive (I'm sure people have those crap 250 GB drives around somewhere), and a large drive for ISO images. I'd love to store all my movies out of the way, but still have access to them in less than 6 minutes.

I hate the idea of SOCs that are soldered to the board, but if this is what Intel has planned for the Atom/Celeron lines then I'll bite. When do I get 16 GB of RAM, a high end iGPU, and a quintet (at least, though more would be better) of SATAII (again, at minimum) connections? That would replace my media server, htpc, and give the last generation of consoles no reason to exist (I see you over there emulation, the Valve controller, and SteamOS). Having one box that actually does everything (no, the PS4 and One aren't really media hubs due to their features being partially being locked by pay walls), and could be left on frequently, would be worth investing in a new platform. Hopefully a quad core, slightly lower clocked version makes its way to the market. Another $15 or $20 would be chump change to be able watch a DVD, while ripping another to the HDD, which has all four TB of space that my media collection has spiraled towards.
