Overshadowed by the release of the high end X68 boards was the release of the Intel H61 Express chipset, the polar opposite of the enthusiast board.  The board is a full sized ATX instead of the mATX you might expect though you only get 4 + 1 phase power which does keep the production costs down.  You are also limited to DDR3-1333 though SATA 6Gb/s and USB 3.0 are available as well as a selection of audio and video out on the back panel and even a UEFI BIOS.  Think Computers rather liked the budget ASRock H61iCafe Intel H61 motherboard; check it out for yourself.

There are so many bloody iThangs out there I think they've given up. It is kind of hard to trade mark a personal pronoun. You can trademark a specific iThang, but you can't claim possession of all possible permutations.

The question is whether someone already has iCafe, Apple is under fire for iBooks right now from a book store.
