TweakTown give this board the once-over:

Compared to the ATX 30x24cm design, this is a baby at 17x17cm - extremely small but packed to the brim with features. In terms of layout because of its extremely cool running nature, running cables though the system is not a problem, as it doesn't interfere with cooling, a small fan is required for the 1.5GHz CPU model but 1GHz models run fanless as they generate far less heat.
