Mini ITX or uATX motherboard with Thunderbolt?

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.

Why will that enclosure cause headaches?
