But can it play Crysis?

LULZ!!!! No... Wrong question. "Can it fold?" seems to be a better question to me.

Been wondering about VIA. Good to see them still kicking. Been wanting to do a build for my truck since sandy launched.

What would you use a computer in your truck for?

Pretty much anything vehicles already do, just with more balls: media storage, GPS, voice calls. I could finally have a use for my infrared usb webcam. Its all just an issue of getting the right peripherals.

And with USB 3.0 you could pair this with an external USB 3.0 enclosure with a WD7500BPKT in it! Desktop performance in a small form factor. I've loved these drives for a while. Being external makes it easy to bring back and forth to put new media on or download update packages. I've been waiting for something like this as well. And with only 32W power consumption this is perfect for vehicles that benefit from smaller power draws.

If this thing can fluently run games at 1280*720, I could use this to replace my ridiculously noisy PS3... VIA needs to whip up some benchmarks...
