Mini ITX or uATX motherboard with Thunderbolt?

Postposted on Mon Apr 28, 2014 5:51 pm

I've been searching the web for a hour or so and I can't seem to find such a beast. Does it exist?

I'm thinking about building a tiny file server with a thunderbolt port so I can connect it to something like this.

Thanks in advance.

Bummer, almost 100 views and no info. So I assume it doesn't exist.

Man, I do not want to go Mac Mini but it's the only SFF PC with Thunderbolt that I can find.

I don't understand what you're trying to accomplish. That external enclosure is only going to cause headaches and drastically increase costs. Why not just choose a case that provides hot swap cages (or use third party ones)? Your total size will be similar and your cost and headache will be much lower.
