To be more specific, it's about the same dimensions as a 3.5" HDD:

Why not use pico-ITX or nano-ITX?

This is smaller than nano-itx, and I don't think they could have fit it onto pico-ITX. Even the new pico-ITX boards aren't really pico-ITX anymore because they require daughter cards to put physical ports onto them (so they end up bigger in actual use).

What's the heatsink like? I see the mount points are relatively close.

Is that a LVDS connector above the chipset?

I haven't seen anything about pricing or the heatsink. I guess worst case scenario you'll just have to drill some holes into an LGA775 bracket.

And yes that is an LVDS connector
. I can already think of a few laptops I'd like to stick this board into. From the main source:

I'd gut a nice 12.1" netbook and throw this in there...

I'd do it to the Thinkpad x100e. Definitely.

Or maybe an older one, like a T41 or something. Just because it's cheaper.

If the point is to be compact and smaller than an ITX why would you want to use a 775 based cooler?

I said bracket, not cooler.

Also, there are 1U LGA775 coolers, which are nice and small.

Did anyone notice that the board has three fan headers on it?

I think this is likely based on the mobile i7 Arrandale with the integrated graphics.

It is. It uses the 18W TDP CPUs (the CULV replacements).

Underneath. It accepts one SODIMM, up to 4GB.
