If you have wanted to get your hands on an Intel Atom system but aren't interested in the netbooks that are out there, it's now relatively easy to find compatible motherboards out there to build your own Intel Atom system. Some of these motherboards even come with an Atom CPU already installed. In this article we have our hands on the Jetway NC92-230-LF, which is a mini ITX motherboard that is pre-installed with an Intel Atom N230 and offers one PCI slot, one DDR2 slot, Gigabit Ethernet, and 6-channel audio.

The packaging for our Jetway NC92-230-LF was a bit battered on the outside and on the inside there was some tape holding pieces of Styrofoam together, but this should just be since we were receiving a test sample from Jetway and those purchasing this product through retail channels should receive their IPC motherboard in pristine condition. Included with the Jetway ITX motherboard + Intel Atom N230 CPU was a ribbon IDE cable, I/O panel, one SATA cable, Jetway user's manual, and a Windows driver software CD.

As some brief history since this is our first time reviewing a Jetway product at Phoronix, Jetway has been around since 1986 and they are based out of Taiwan. Jetway specializes in PCB manufacturing and they offer a variety of graphics cards, motherboards, and IPC boards. There are also a few barebone systems, LCD monitors, and computer enclosures that Jetway also sells.
