Wow, that's tiny.

    Nice, but I'm going to wait for their Nano-ITX format motherbaord (12 cm x 12 cm) with the Eden-N processor.

    It only has 1 onboard LAN port. Not so useful for firewalls/routers.

      If you need the extra LAN, put in a slimline PCI.

      A CL motherboard with 2 LAN ports was released at the same time, however it does not have CardBUS or inbuilt 12v.

      Integrating the 12V is a good move to remove component cost. It comes with the risk that breakdown may require replacing the entire board rather than just the PS module, and the PS module is shipped with fixed wattage.

      This company sells similar boards with 1 to 3 NIC's, you can even choose between Realtek and Intel ones ;)
