Summary: This board works fine once you accept it's limitations. When I purchased this, I paid no attention to it's lack of a standard ATX power connector. I made it work by building a little adapter of which I'm rather proud. The bigger problem, imho, is that Intel does not provide a 64-bit graphics driver.
Summary: Put away the sledge hammer! I know everyone has been complaining about the dreaded unsupported GPU, but don't throw it away yet! The GPU worked great on 64bit MINT Linux right from the downloaded DVD! I haven't tried ubuntu yet, Mint is based on ubuntu... and ubuntu is based on debian.
Summary: Would not hesitate to purchase another or a later board in this series. Board is unique and concept is fantastic (silent, dual core, fanless, low power consumption). Intel support is first rate.
Pros: Almost perfect for a silent, low power consumption computer. With a SSD and 4Gb RAM it worked far better than than my older Pentium4 3.06GHz machine and is great for everyday use. XP driver support including Video is available on the Intel site and as well as HDMI, displayport, VGA, USB2, Etherne...
Cons: Unfortunately I had an early production model, and the motherboard 'died' after 6 months. No longer performed POST or power-up, BIOS recovery was not possible. Intel tech support lead me through the boarad diagnosis and concluded it was a hardware fault. Best thing is that Intel have a three year...
Summary: The only good thing about this Mobo is that it makes a low power server under w7/linux. However, believe it or not, there are not and probably won't be Windows 8 drivers: [...] Also, there are no easily installable Linux drivers (unless you are willing to hack a lot) .
Summary: Looking for a low cost board/cpu combo that can handle HD video play back. Now thrown in the cost of shipping it back, just under $14.00, and I could have purchased a more powerful combo for about the same price.
Pros: non so far
Cons: DOA Board flashed (Power LED) a pattern that was not in the trouble shooting section of the manual and no audio. spent 30min with intel tech support while they tried to get the board to give an audio beep. After which they stated since the board is not producing an audio beep in must be dead.
Summary: I am happy with my two totally silent atoms for what they are running windows server 2008 and 64 bit win 8 pro. I would NOT use as my personal computer. Too weak. The next mini ITX I set up will use a more powerful CPU albeit that will require a fan.
Pros: ( I have two of them) wireless, soundless, runs 64bit windows ultimate runs ms server 2008 ( but then wireless not work ) low power transportable as so small I have my main machine as a dual boot windows 8 64 bit pro ultimate and also same 32 bit. I mostly use 64 bit. It functions well with 8 gig...
Cons: low power cpu, there is no 3d support and its not due to lack of drivers. It lacks the power.
Summary: I wish there was a better selection of thin mini-ITX boards out there. The profile of these are great. But... You've got to be kidding me about no 64-bit graphics driver available. It's even documented on the interwebs that Intel intentionally opted to not provide one.
Pros: Thin mini-ITX form factor is perfect for use in a Sega Genesis 2 PC build. Slot for an mSATA SSD, mPCIe wireless card (not included), and laptop memory, all of which lay flat and don't need any cables. Overall height with all components installed is around 3/4". That's awesome. Has two high-curre...
Cons: No 64-bit graphics drivers available from Intel! No SATA III ports or USB 3.0. Onboard power...power adapter not included.
