AOpen's i915GMt-FA Pentium M Mini-ITX

We snagged a slightly clearer picture of AOpen's i915GMt-FA Socket 479 Pentium M Mini-ITX motherboard, which uses Intel's 915GM + ICH6M chipset. Front side bus speed is 533MHz, though both DDR II 533 and 400 is supported in two DIMM slots. The two red connectors on the board are SATA sockets, though there is also a legacy IDE socket. Once SATA slimline optical drives become widely available we expect IDE sockets to make way for SATA altogether on top end Mini-ITX boards, freeing up valuable board real estate. The CPU heatsink is of course removed for display purposes. Audio is Realtek ALC880 7.1 through up to 6 x 3.5mm audio jacks, while Ethernet is of the Gigabit variety. Display is either VGA or S-Video, with 2 x Firewire and 4 x USB 2.0 ports available on the rear and 4 more USB 2.0 as pin headers.
