Gigabyte Brix looks like a winner
LOL. My point is don't pay a premium for a C1007U or C1037U over C847 because it's not worth the money. However, if say the C847 were $5 less than a C1007U motherboard, I would get the C1007U no doubt. But if it were $30 difference, I don't see it being worth it since for HTPC use there will be no perceived increase in performance.

For why offer i3, i5 and i7 barebones? There are not only feature differences between these but not everyone is getting a barebones for HTPC. People also get them for workstations, trading PCs, etc. I don't see though the need to sell two different kinds of i5 or i7. There are two different i3s because they have different GPUs. You can save a little money if you don't need the HD4000 and the HD2500 is good enough for your usage. There are much bigger gaps between i3, i5 and i7 than C847 and C1007/1037U.
