    Can someone shed some light on Thin-ITX boards. I'm not too familiar with them and I have not seen one in person before.

    Are all Thin-ITX power adapter socket the same size?

    If they are a standard (which I believe it should be), does any one know what laptop power adapter fits Thin-ITX boards? I haven't found too much info and had some conflicting info.

    I have many Dell adapters currently :lol:

    Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have a standard, like any laptops even from the same manufacturer. You may need to get one of those universal adapters.

    Ya, sometimes laptop same manufacturers have different plug designs. :wall:

    I think I just manage to find some information. Seems like manufacturers just wants to make our lives difficult. :lol:

    But there are so many laptop manufacturers... I don't think it is really that standard.

    I think some of them are also using 12V power supplies, right?
