Micro atx mini tower board! There you go! I saw a few like that only AMD models when going to shop for a board to fit into the NZXT Vulcan case 7 Pro x64 runs on. I ended up with a Phenom II X2 model on the board that only see two 2gb memory slots.

You may find one report interesting as it deals with a rating of the 8 best micro ATX and Mini-ITX motherboards as one buying guide for tiny boards that pack a punch. Some of these boards have a bit more for the size then you would typically expect any micro atc model to have as far as what you can plug into them.

They are now starting to put some real work horses in smaller packages! To compete with the competition seen for hand held devices and to shrink wrap things down in size manufacturers are reworking designs to accomidate smaller formats.

Smaller case to begin with, smaller power requirements, great for Lan parties, etc. seems to be the growing trend as far as what would be considered desktop hardwares.

That's all nice. But once you add a monitor, keyboard, mouse, modem, router and a couple of disks. your desk will be cluttered after all.

You could get a tablet with a usb keyboard all in one case. I bought one of these for someone's birthday. Newegg.com - 8GB 10.1" Capacitive full Touch Screen Wifi Tablet w/ USB Keyboard Smart Cover Leather Case - [A8 1.5Ghz CPU, 1GB DDR3, 2160P HDMI output, Front 0.3MP Camera]

That's free of clutter as well as options to get anything done!

It's a ARM processor, so it is basically naked smartphone/tablet hardware.
Wake me again when they put x86 processors in those things.

Also, Raspberry Pi has now 512 mb ram without changing the price. Frankly, I'd still prefer the Pi at 35$.
You can build cheap supercomputers out of it for the price of a top gaming rig.

The AGPTek model there I doubt would be ARM since that is mainly the new MS Surface Tablet series that would even see those. As for the micro atx boards are not running any ARM processor. These run what a full size atx board will run as far as the cpu in most cases. These boards are regular but simply made mini sized boards.

They either run with core I5 or I7 for Intel or typically an AMD Phenom II or Atholon II model cpu. Some of them may even start seeing the new Octocores now out from AMD. That will coming along likely some time soon as well.

I don't understand what you are trying to say... I know that mini-atx boards can support any CPU and GPU, but the thing linked isn't a mini-atx board. (it is far far smaller)

It states to use " Exynos quad-core ARM-based central processing unit.", which is an ARM processor, period. They also state that it runs Android, an OS that runs on ARM.

That was in response to whs's post about still seeing clutter on the desktop once you start adding the keyboard, mouse, monitor, etc. even when getting into any micro atx or ITX anything. You apparently missed the point I was trying to make there.

That was simply to point out a tablet that offers a usb keyboard along with the carrying case. That allows you to set it up like a laptop. You wouldn't see clutter with that but at the same time can't do that much with it either!
