    Intel came up with the BTX form factor a little while ago. I have not heard from it since. Do a lot of PCs use this motherboard style? How about Dell?

    Is it a possibility that future Macs will use it?

    Most of our new Dell towers come with BTX motherboards. They're so much better than ATX ones. I love the airflow and layout.

    Gateway has been using the BTX for almost a year I believe.

    Could any future Macs use a BTX MB? I suppose that anything is possible- who would have imagined Mac OS running on intel processors?!

    If I'm not mistaken. The PMG5 I believe is shaped like BTX. o_O
