    Cant find anything related to power consumption though. How is the WHS support for Via chipsets ??? It is apparently available for pre-order here.

  • Hi,
    the problem with such hardware in context with WHS will usually be the not existing driver support for Windows Server 2003.

  • Looks interesting for a low end WHS. However, I think the price point ($299) is too high. You could put together a similarly configured Shuttle K45 system (with a Celeron 430 & 512M RAM) for around $150. Also, the K45 is only a little bigger dimensionally.
