Hardware, Embedded Systems "Unless you are a big fan of small form-factor computing, you probably haven't been tracking the development of VIA's Pico-ITX motherboards. This form-factor was announced at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, but it has been almost impossible to get your hands on an ITX motherboard and the official U.S. release has yet to happen. A few samples have made their way to reviewers and developers, but because of their rarity coverage has been sparse."

Mini-ITX

I wish mini-itx and similar computers were used more often. You can get a 1GHz fanless computer with 512MB RAM and a 4GB flash disk (making it completely silent) for only £250. Instead companies seem to prefer rubbish cheap dell computers. This especially annoys me in places like libraries and internet cafés where the computers are left on all day, every day.

They would save so much electricity, money, space, and sanity (damn those fans!) if they used these instead of cheap desktop computers.
