Hopefully it will new available here soon as I think this build is quite tempting as long as we don't get the usual substitution of the $ sign for a £ one

I think for HTPC usage you would not see a lot of difference between Celeron 847 and Celeron 1007U so I would go with what your budget allows. Right now at Newegg, you can get the Gigabyte C847 $40 cheaper than the Gigabyte C1007U but only because of the rebate. If it were only $10-20 cheaper then I would go for the C1007U.

It remains to be seen until someone tests it what the 3D support is for the C1007U. The Passmark numbers for the C1007U come close to the G530T which is very impressive!

Two other mini-ITX solutions should be arriving soon: the next generation of Atom with Ivy Bridge Intel HD graphics and Haswell there are supposed to be mini-ITX motherboards with embedded "R" processors. I would like to see thin mini-ITX version with on-board DC power for all these.

It's hard to say if the fan on that ASUS one will be noisy or not. Otherwise, it should perform identical to any other C847 motherboard,
