Conga-BM57 is a tiny Core i7 mainboard

Tiny and powerful, you can have it both ways.

You know I am all for smaller computers. I am really tired of these gigantic cases sitting by my desk that make lots of noise with all the fans for cooling. It would be great to build a powerful computer that was dead silent and could sit on my desk, or better yet behind my LCD.

A tiny Core i7 mainboard has turned up that might just let me do that called the conga-BM57. The board measures at a scant 5" x 3.7" and sports a 2.66 GHz Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM, Intel integrated graphics, five PCI Express lanes, and eight USB ports.

 

That's not all either; the tiny board also packs in three SATA ports, one EIDE port, and one Gigabit Ethernet port. It can also support dual displays with VGA, LVDA, HDMI, and DisplayPort options. We aren't sure how much the thing will cost or when it will show up, but I want one if the price is right.
