Humor "Surprise, surprise, a certain Korean company copies more of Apple's product design. When Apple launched the iPad mini in October 2012, Apple explained the design: the almost 8" screen size and thin border allow one-handed use. Now, the new 8" Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 has the same border design as the iPad mini." From what I can only assume is the The Onion of technology reporting. I love humour like this on a lazy Friday afternoon.

commercially available minipcie msata motherboard? http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-GA-Z68XP-UD3-1155-Intel-Motherboard/...

Yeah, I got obsessed with the idea of my next motherboard having ALL the ports. It actually use to be a lot harder to find almost sure the only one I use to find was a Jetway(?). I seem to remember there are a handful of Mitx options but it's been awhile since I checked.

Anyways, back to your previous scheduled argument.

Awesome find! Now, put two hexacore Xeon E5 CPUs on it...oh wait.

My point was that Apple put all that awesome, forward-thinking tech into one tiny, supposedly quiet, and arguably ugly case, for the cost of the car I drive to work. I won't buy one as it would be way beyond my needs and budget, but to say it's "a pile of crap" as the GP poster implied, is simply asinine.

Seriously though, that's an interesting board! ;)
