We've been following this for some time and now that it's been details have been made public, we can confirm that Aleutia will be releasing a unique PC based around this Sandy Bridge board, the Intel DH61AG Apple Glen board.
As you can see this is a half-height mini-itx board, similar to the Intel D945GSEJT that we use on our T1, and has an onboard power supply. but with superior I/O including:
- DVI Port
- HDMI Port
- Pair of USB 3.0 Ports
- Pair of USB 2.0 Ports (High Current, Fast Charging)
Like the T1 this has two SATA Ports. Unlike the T1 it has:
- Full Height AND Half Height Mini PCIe (ideal for WLAN) slots
- Two DDR3 SO-DIMM Slots with support for up to 16GB of RAM.
We'll be releasing a PC based on this board (Project Vela) but for now we're selling the board itself through our sister site Mini ITX Stop for £84.95:
Came across ITX Gamer ,a great site focussed on the high end of mini-itx computing. They've been regularly reporting Mini-ITX motherboards ready for Chipzilla's latest CPU line up, the Sandy Bridge i3, i5, and i7 Processors (Socket 1155). These give off less heat, use less power, and are way better value (especially at the top end). Spoke to a few distributors today and seems Intel's DH67CF will be first available in the UK, followed by Gigabyte, Asus, and Foxconn and ECS likely early next month.
Site has a great mini-itx motherboard comparison tool as well:
