Mini-ITX

So, I'm posting this blog message using BrainBot. Currently, BrainBot has a Mini-ITX onboard, with a 2.83 GHz Core 2 Quad processor, and a 32 GB Solid State Hard Drive (SATA).

I'm really impressed by how all this has come together...

In the picture to the right, the mini-itx is mounted to the bottom plate, along with the solid state hard drive. The top part of the chassis is sitting upright, as if the bottom plate had been hinged down. I've been pretty careful with wire management on this robot, to try and make everything as robust as possible.

I've got my 23" LCD monitor plugged in (DVI), and a USB keyboard and wireless mouse, along with an 802.11n wifi dongle to get network/internet access.
