What would it be used for? Are you looking for silence? Performance? HTPC? Lemme know! I've done quite a bit of research into SFF systems.

That’s the problem I have the hardware and no use for it……….. At first I want to use it for listen video and music, but I build a HTPC and it’s in the same room, I said maybe I can use it to download music and protect my main pc from infection, but I will need a keyboard and a mouse for that, and I really want to use the TT 7” touch screen only.

But I will keep your name in mind for my next SFF projects...

This may sound a bit odd, but perhaps try building a more simple internet box and use Windows 7 on it. Its by far the most well adapted OS for use on touchscreens and nears XP in terms of performance, you probably Could use it on the 7'' touch screen without the need for a mouse and keyboard.

Alternatively, you could use a small USB KVM and switch between your main PC and the ITX Pc with a standard keyboard/mouse, with the possibility of hiding the KVM itself somewhere instead the Mozart TX.

Just pickup the one of those dual-core Intel Atom boards, runs you like $100 + a stick of DDR2 RAM and whatever hard drive/SSD/CF card you want to run the OS off. Could probably wire it up into your main PSU assuming you have something decent.
