Interesting how all those J1800-based boards have MSRPs lower than Intel's own for the chip alone in trays of 1000.Reply
May be a pre-order only price or perhaps they're getting the chips cheaper than Intel is listing the tray price at.Reply
Why would anyone buy it when Gigabyte offers the same package for the exact same price.We all know that Gigabyte is way better than Biostar when it comes to quality.Reply
The price isn't bad at all for what it is, it would make a great bade for a simple machine machine and its more or less keeping in line with Biostars current offering on newegg. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138393Reply
