Desktop Pentium M mobos shipping and available
AOpen and DFI are apparently shipping desktop Pentium M motherboards into the channel in not only Asia, but also North America. Newegg actually has both boards in stock, but at $252 and $269 respectively, they don't come cheap.
Although Intel may be reluctant to push the Pentium M into the desktop world, the availability of Micro ATX motherboards and retail processors should make it easy to roll your own Pentium M desktop system. Let's hope these Micro ATX boards become popular enough to encourage other manufacturers to dabble with desktop Pentium M products. A Pentium M-based small form factor system or Mini ITX motherboard would be sweet indeed.
