You want one with a passive heatsink? Here is the E35M1-I DELUXE by Asus:

The last paragraph is to the point. The Brazos platform is too late to benefit from the netbook fad. But a Brazos Mini-ITX board would be a good basis for a small and cheap sytem for the many users who only use browsers and e-mail.

AMD has missed the party again!

It's the best netbook cpu, if it had been released in 2009 when netbooks were all the rage it would have done really well. The current rage however is android/iOS tablets and this isn't suitable for them.

When they improve the architecture and shrink it to TSMC 28nm it will be a much better product.
Basicly the new ARM CPU-s are also waiting now for the shrinks, so the next one could be finaly at time and more tablet friendly.

What power usage meter was used to measure power on this motherboard?

The anandtech measured 30-50W on same motherboard

Using a wall powermeter is a inaccurate method because it takes into account PSU inefficiency. We measure the power consumption after PSU with our brand test equipment. More details here:

Very nice that you use your own equipment, do you plan to opensource it? IT could be useful for community too

Also because actual cost for electricity is based PSU + Computer your measurement seem too scientific, good enough to judge certain motherboard electrical design, but do not reflect what my electric bill will be. Also you could your review ASUS MB
Some review sites show power draw highier, but I doubt it since their measurement techniques are flawed to begin with.
