Foxconn Nano PC nT-i1500 Barebone Review
Foxconn has brought us to the table the latest generation of Intel Atom CPUs, by using the small Nano PC chassis which features about the same layout inside as the barebones we have tested from them in the past. The system power consumption is very low, temperatures are good in load and the noise generated is decent. Only thing that needs to be fixed to make this product fully functional is the VGA driver which in its current state offers low performance in both 2D and 3D environments, and Intel does not offer any support for x64 OSes.

Almost fine
I really like the design of this nano-pc.
It is really small and the perf is correct.
I install Windows Server 2012 as a backup server :redface:

Foxconn is pretty new in the pc market (with their own brand).
Currently they don't support 64 bit OS (no 64 bit drivers available).
It seems they support only Windows 7 32bit
Hopefully, Windows Server 2012 recognize almost all the devices (not the soundcard, nor the wifi device). :no:
Intel does not support the GPU (gma 3600). What a shame. :no:

I downloaded their last firmware, but there is no information about the firmware (only flash file).
I did hardly the flash (yes, you must create your own dos bootable usb device to flash).

Anyway, hopefully as a server, it works pretty well (i don't need the soundcard nor the wifi). I regret only there is no sleep mode on Windows Server 2012 (Microsoft think it is a nonsense to have sleep mode on a server :mad:).

My verdict is :

hardware : 9/10
software/drivers : 1/10
