Just out of interest what servers do you build with them? Web-servers, NAS's??nah, there is still a market for both powerfull notebooks and for the energy efficient/low power netbooks. I think both will continue to trive
TBH, I'm currently more interested in the application of Atom chips outside of netbooks. One can build wonderfull little servers with them
I havent built anything yet, but I'm looking at building a NAS type server, possibly with Amahi on it, or some form of server Ubuntu.
Since you buy the board with cpu already on, its a nice package for cheap, and the board from Asus i'm eyeing is completely passive cooled, and powerful enough to be a HTPC (without PVR functionality). Can output HD and 7 channel audio
well, yes. But the fact is if you are planning to let it run 24/7 for 2-3 years minimum, then having something drawing almost no power and being 100% silent does have a strong appeal! Plus the small form-factor = > easy to hide/stash behind something
