From a quality and performance perspective the GIGABYTE H77TN and MiTAC Maestro 770 are both fantastic. I have trouble picking any real flaws. The issues I have are purely from a platform point of view. The AIO PC just isn't for me at the moment - not in a replace what I currently have situation anyway. I can see a serious use for this kind of PC.

...

We've got two fantastic products here that come together to make one fantastic product. The AIO PC is not for everyone, and until the video situation is sorted, which we can't see happening any time soon, it's a platform that gamers are going to avoid. For others though, it could be just what they want.

I see a lot of potential in this platform, especially if motherboard manufacturers add more mPCI-E slots and case manufacturers include cooling systems for mobile GPUs... and who's to say this form factor can't be used in DIY laptops in the future?

They'll be in good shape too. I just helped a friend build a router with one of Intel's thin ITX motherboards, some DDR3 1600, IB i3, a SSD, Lian Li's Q05 case. It's about the physical size of a dictionary and blazing fast.

Laptops really need to become more modular, it will differentiate them from glued-together tablets and other touchscreen devices.

I'm really excited for this considerably smaller form factor thing catching on

Although it can be used for a normal PC, it's not designed for that. I could see myself using this in a Thin mITX server. Now that Intel is leaving the motherboard market it's great Gigabyte is starting to make Thin mITX boards, give me dual Intel NICs and I'm sold.

I... I fail to see the point of something like this... It's a motherboard with a desktop CPU socket and a cooler that's probably no better than the one in my laptop.

So why not just buy a laptop? >_>

Laptops are made to be a portable AIO solution. If you don't care about portability, this would be a cheaper solution. Also, desktop CPU's are considerably more powerful than their laptop counterparts.
