Bay Trail BRIX available on the cheap


The fanless BRIX is finally available for $130 on Amazon (HDD or SSD bundles also available). More powerful than the Atom-based NUC, more flexible than ECS LIVA, the GB-BXBT-2807 will handle 1080P files or make the tiniest (and quietest) desktop PC. The design could be more refined, but overall GIGABYTE nailed it on this one.
