Tremendous Value

ECS NM70-TI (V1.0A) Intel Celeron 847/807 Intel NM70 Thin Mini-ITX Motherboard / CPU / VGA Combo

Pros: $33 AR for MB & CPU. Worth much more. Performance is fine for general computing. It gets 3.9 rating in Windows7. Web surfing, Email and general operations are good, and seem the equal of my more expensive rigs. 1. Uses mobile memory modules that are now noticeably cheaper than desktop ones, which leaves more space for functionality. 2. Uses 19v brick for power supply, saves space & $. 3. Can use Msata SSD on MB. Saves space. 4. 1/2 height saves space.

Cons: Only 2 rear panel USB ports. Small fan may become noisy.

Overall Review: Absolutely loves it so far. Bought from Newegg.

Overall Review: Results seem pretty good. I am amazed the Raid1 (Duped Data) is quite fast too . Items all from Newegg
