It amuses me that the processor doesn't need a fan but now the northbridge does lol. There's just something wrong with that.

Cheaper here, only £65.20 delivered as opposed to £67.22:thumbsup:

Only 1 PCI slot and what's with all these legacy ports - when was the last time anyone could buy a new parallel port printer and why a serial port?

Are we to assume that this board wasn't designed for the consumer market?

im sure i read some where that this motherboard uses 20w + 22w for the chip (i.e. 44w)

where as a eeebox only uses 23w for everything (including hd / ram etc)

Your suspicions are correct, the power consumption of the northbridge and rest of the chipset is many times the CPU.

For similar money you can buy the Atom 330 dual core Intel board D945GCLF2 the power increase is minimal, but there should be some better (power consumption and function) combinations next year like the Nvidia Ion platform 9400m+Atom.

You can get the latest intel Atom 330 dual core board for a similar price.
