Asus AT5NM10-I


$90.00 Released January, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Low energy consumption at ~30w max. Passive heatsink. Silent operation.

The Cons:No HDMI interface. No optical audio output. COM and LPT are seldom used (for payment terminals typically), can be mid-board connectors and 2 back-plates with LPT+COM or 2xUSB+HDMI.

 The Asus motherboard is just like a small car - gets small jobs done at a little expense. If you are looking for a mini-ITX board for an HTPC computer, AT5IONT-I would be a better candidate.

 AT5NM10-I would find a better fit for industrial use. Parallel and serial ports make sense in this case, as they are common interfaces to integrate with cash registers and industrial components. Low power consumption, fan-less design and integrated network interface makes it a very good candidate for such applications. Another application for the board can be a home server, though only two SATA ports can limit server extensibility.
