Summary: In the end, the most appealing thing about the Intel D510MO Mini-ITX motherboard with 1.66GHz Intel Atom dual core processor was that it could be used as the core of a completely silent system. Since the board is passively cooled, you can pick other passively cooled or solid state components for a build that generates absolutely zero noise.
To complement the silence, a system including the D510MO can also be quite compact and draw minimal electricity.
Pros: » Extremely low power - system tested at 19W idle and 29W load, » Can be used to create a completely silent / passively cooled system, » Expandability: Two memory slots, two SATA ports, PCI slot, Mini PCIe slot, USB SSD header, » Attractively priced
Cons: » Video:, » Not for gaming or multimedia, » HDMI or DVI onboard would be nice, » DirectX 9, » Memory, » Make sure the memory modules are popped in properly - slots are tight, » Two slots - but single channel controller
