Usually, getting a system with a Mini-ITX form factor implies making some sacrifices. After all, you can't get all the perks of a modern motherboard down into a paltry 6.93" x 6.93" circuit board. Zotac has certainly tried with its new nForce 630i-ITX WiFi motherboard, however.
The nForce 630i-ITX WiFi includes a GeForce 7100 chipset and nForce 630 south bridge from Nvidia, and it supports Intel Core 2 processors with 1333MHz front-side bus speeds (even the Core 2 Quads, according to the official spec sheet). Zotac has also built in 802.11g Wi-Fi, as evidenced by the antenna that pokes out the back.
Photos of the motherboard reveal other features, including DVI and VGA display outputs, two Serial ATA ports, a couple of DIMM slots, one ATA connector, one PCI Express x1 slot, six USB ports, and Ethernet. Zotac even tosses in a DVI-to-HDMI adapter in the accessory bundle. Slip a TV tuner in the PCIe x1 slot, and you could have a media-center PC almost ready to go. Now, all you need is a nice enclosure for it.
