Competition Modern life seems to move at an ever-increasing pace, and nowhere is this lust for speed more evident than in computing. With a foot flat on the accelerator and one eye on the clock speed, we seem to have forgotten a gentler, more sedate age.

So, in the spirit of "less is more", Vulture Central has teamed up with VIA to give away three of its VIA Eden™ EPIA Mini-ITX boards.

VIA reckons it's ideal for fanless, small chassis installation with very little cooling or ventilation, as we previously reported. You get the idea - small, quiet/silent, connected and affordable.

We think our highly-talented and creative Reg readers will be able to think up a whole raft of ingenious uses for this handy product. And that's what we want to hear - your own Eden creation story. For the chance to win one of these boards, simply tell us - in 200 words or less - how you would put the VIA Eden™ EPIA Mini-ITX board to work.

Just formulate your technical masterplan, and email it to us here. Mark the subject of your entry "Eden".

Should you require inspiration, you can peruse the specs here. Good luck.
