    wait... why couldn't MSI build this in a smaller package than mITX? or, why didn't they go for a thin design if they placed everything so sparsely across the board?
    for that matter, why are they using desktop RAM?

    I thought the whole point of using lower TDP parts was to get them into even smaller packages than mITX?

    AFAIK, mITX is the smallest standard socketed form factor. Like the article says, there are BGA versions of Kabini available for more integrated applications. Reply

    If you are a big OEM who needs a custom board for a custom chassis, I am pretty sure MSI will be able to build you an even smaller board, but for products which target the retail market, such a product will make no sense because it will lack the infrastructure to accommodate it. Reply

    Agreed. I want to have choices of something like NUC. Reply

    If this is true then these parts will make excellent media centre parts, would love to rebuild my media centre with these parts. Currently, I'm using an AMD Athlon X2 7850 (95W TDP) for the CPU, and these 25W would be great to replace what I have now. Reply
