Yup. Thats the sex. I want one too
I fail to see whats exciting here?
Some random complaint
http://www.via.com.tw/en/initiatives/spearhead/pico-itx/

I want one. No. I want 10. My plan is to dismantle a decent keyboard and vacuum form a new case for it, integrating one of these tiny motherboards along with an HD underneath the keyboard component. Imagine- with on-board tv out, just plug this keyboard thing straight into your lounge tv..
My lil mind boggles at the possibilities.
Think of what you could do with one of these and a USB wifi dongle? What about one of those laser keyboards that projects the keys onto any flat surface? Hows about when OLED screens are perfected? =D

Yeah, I have one of those. : )

Really though, it's not that much smaller than many sytems that are already available. Look at the Mac Mini, the Nintendo Wii, and other recent small form factor PCs. Make them smaller, and add a touch screen and battery, and you have a PDA or UMPC. It might be moderately interesting and possibly useful in some cases, but not really all that huge of an advancement.
wah... waall-eee

Hahaha! Damn it, Cryo beat me to it.

Sorry, I don't really have that much more to add.

I have to vote the same, in fact i was tempted to vote the complaint. Such devices lose their modularity and therefore have a lack of upgrade capacity. Basically, its only fitting for things like PDAs.

Which is exactly what Im so excited about! Gahh.. You kids with yer music
Just the norm-changing factor these mobos represent.. Yeah they are not modular- even the cpu is soldered in.. A friend of mine is excited about the wearable PC aspect. Me personally? Im just excited at new case designs and suchlike.. Meh Im babbling. I do that when I want something this cool
