The Celeron J1900 has a TDP of only 10W and belongs to Intel's Bay Trail/Silvermont SoC (system on a chip) family, the latest generation of Atom processors which is notable for greatly surpassing the performance of its predecessors. Bay Trail can be found wherever energy efficiency is a concern, such as in tablets and netbooks, but they also drive SFF desktops and entry-level tower PCs as they're also affordable and have low cooling demands. The J1900 is a quad core model with a clock speed of 2.42 GHz and integrated Intel HD Graphics, a cut-rate version of the HD 4000 series featured on faster Ivy Bridge processors.

The board itself has a pair of SODIMM slots (low voltage only) supporting up to 8GB of RAM, storage in the form of a single SATA 3 Gbps port and mSATA slot, and expansion capability through a mini PCI-E slot and PCI-E 1x slot. There's no wireless connectivity out of the box, but it has a SIM card slot to connect to mobile networks, and gigabit ethernet. Given the target demographic, it also has serial and parallel port headers, and an LVDS connector. The four available USB ports are of the 2.0 variety, but there is a 2.0 and 3.0 header onboard.

The board ships with the barest of essentials, a driver disc, a single SATA data cable, and an I/O shield. It requires a 19V power source (not included) and peripherals can be powered using a SATA power port on the board itself (cable/adapter also not included). The heatsink's dimensions are 7.9 x 7.9 x 1.0 cm and and is secured to the board using pushpins. HDMI and VGA display outputs are available but they're limited to 1920x1200 resolution.

For testing, we used a Kingston mS200 mSATA drive, 2 x 4 GB of Kingston ValueRAM DDR3-1600, and a 19V/120W Seasonic power adapter.
