your not allowed to use non-apple certified hardware with apples it is stated in the EULA (End user licensing agreement)

I discovered that they have updated this board and it now supports desktop cpu's so you can have a quad core in an itx system if you wanted
COMMELL LV-676 Intel Core 2 Duo Desktop LGA775 Mini-ITX Motherboard


For the record look here Psile | Silent Media center or living room PC according to Nexus and scroll down to connecting it has a plate for the motherboard connections

If you really wanted a small pc you could go with pico motherboard which is 7.2cm by 10cm!!!!!! only supports imbedded cpu's and VIA cpu's are kinda rubbish but if your just doing general tasks it will be powerful enough

mini-itx.com - news - VIA define Pico-ITX with VT6047 Reference Design

Ahh..hmm...interesting...

Now, can Mac os x go on these machines though? Or is that a big nu-uh.

yes it takes a small amount of configuration but mac can be installed but this forum will not be able to help you as installing mac on non-mac hardware is illegal and obviously the moderators would delete a thread explaining how to do this and will warn you about it

Oh yes I know...sucks but oh well. I've been trying to find out how to do it, but am still unsuccessful. I have a version of tiger, tried installing it on my PC too, apparently it was a version that "could" go on a windows oriented PC, but it didn't work still. I've searched around, but still no luck on how to get it to work yet, blah.
