Atom-powered Mini-ITX board for sale

For 52.90 in the UK

Just about every man and his dog know about Intel's low power consuming Atom processor by now and how all the next batch of small notebooks, Mobile Internet Devices / UMPCs and so on will use it.


But how many of you out there know that you can snap up one of these puppies and use it on a Mini-ITX based motherboard?


Tranquil PC Limited over in the UK has an Atom-powered Mini-ITX D945GCLF motherboard for sale which comes installed with an Atom 230 1.60GHz processor.


It won't be suitable as your next high-end gaming rig but it would be rather interesting for someone looking to build a quiet and low power consuming computer or a basic home theater PC.


You can pick up the motherboard and CPU together for £52.90 not including tax. If you are interested to be one of the first to try Atom on the desktop, head on over here and get yourself a piece of the action.
