    in Pico ITX there is far more interesting CPU than an Intel Core or AMD Ryzen...
    It's dominated mainly with arm CPU or GPU used as CPU.

    I would argue x86 in this form factor is more interesting than the alternatives, specifically because ARM (and RISC-V) dominate the form factor. Getting x86 in such a tiny form factor with the features this board has to offer is very appealing.

    I'm not going to buy it, but I do see the appeal.

    I feel that it kinda has some useless features, and it *might* be better off with something else. Second ethernet port? USB 2.0? DP AND HDMI? (HDMI licensing costs, so maybe without would have been kinda better).
    But for now idk what it should replace those tbh :D

    These devices can be common for home-built routers, so the dual ethernets make sense. USB 2.0 headers are smaller; with limited space on the PCB, I would rather have 4x 2.0 ports than a pair of 3.x ports. These devices are also common for HTPC use, where HDMI is rather a necessity.

    I would, however, rather a model that replaces one of the ethernet ports with wifi+BT.

    same here, for me sounds pretty appealing as a next drone project, if it had a wifi/BT replacement
