    At last, a desktop motherboard is to be released for the Pentium-M processor. This is great news for anyone wanting to build a quiet, low power HCPC.
    Here is a thorough review of the board and processor compared to top end systems featuring P4s and AMD FX chips.
    Unfortunately, HD content playback was not tested which is a shame because they repeatedly state how good this chip would be for a HCPC.
    The only drawback seems to be price and low memory bandwith.

    Cheers, Beastie.

    As well as Aopen, DFI have a Pentium-M microATX board. There is a spec somewhere at www.dfi.com.tw (trouble with that website at the moment). These do look promising, but I don't know how long before we can buy one easily. The DFI is supposed to be available in the US mid-November. I believe that a German website had the Aopen (probably out of stock now). There is some discussion of this in the forums of silentpcreview.com.
