Intel Low Power Motherboard
Intel have released the D945GSEJT Mini-ITX motherboard. This is one of a range of small low power board which can be used to make very small, low cost desktop computers. Other manufacturers, such as VIA, make similar boards, but Intel, as a well know brand will make these devices more respectable for corporate users. These units use the Atom processor, made popular in netbook computers and require no fan. They use a plug pack power supply and can be placed in a case about the size of an external DVD drive (or an Apple Mac Mini). The problem for Intel is that as this is enough computer for the average office worker or casual home user, who is going to buy their more expensive products?
