In addition to the included Bay Trail processor, the Asus J1800I-C motherboard has two DDR3L SODIMM slots (8GB 1333MHz max), two SATA II 3Gbps ports, a PCI-E x1 slot, and a single Mini PCI-E connector. The Celeron J1800I is a 10W TDP chip with two cores clocked at 2.41 GHz base and 2.58 GHz boost paired with an Intel HD Graphics GPU and 1MB CPU cache.

External I/O on the J1800I-C includes:

  • 1 x PS/2
  • 4 x USB 2.0
  • 1 x USB 3.0
  • 1 x COM
  • 1 x Gigabit Ethernet (Realtek RTL8111G NIC)
  • 3 x Audio
  • 2 x Video outputs
    • 1 x HDMI
    • 1 x VGA

Pricing and availability have not yet been announced, but the board and CPU combo should retail for around $65 USD. This system could be used as a development board for mobile Bay Trail systems or a low cost driver of digital signage and kiosks. It could also make for a low power desktop if the pricing works out right compared to other SFF systems.

I can see couple of interesting uses for this board. for me best part it has serial port on the back panel which is getting harder to find now a days.

What kind of use cases would you like to see explored?

I am currently developing a signal simulator for railways, and I don't need a ton of storage(single 120GB SSD) or computation power for sending, receiving and processing those signals. Since the CPU is x86 I won't have recode and I can deliver the software to my clients in a small sized PC which can be silent, cool and energy efficient.

also for another software that I have just delivered, I just need a storage server, for a large sized database. this motherboard with a storage card and couple of high capacity hard drives will do the job.

Openelec box maybe... depending on quality of video though.

I'd be curious how well 1080p Video play back works from a network or streaming source as well as local source.

I would like to see these compared to the FM1 platforms the uses cases I can see would be htpc, low power server , or even using one for a firewall with the addition of a network card. Might also be alright for a cheap desktop for someone who just wants to browse the web or for things like school computer labs.
