Good morning,

Answering questions about what is "Best" is a little difficult without knowing exactly what it is you are trying to do. If I were to ask what the best vehicle is you would not be able to answer until you knew if I worked on a farm or was an avid weekend racer.

What is it you are trying to do? Do you have a list of requirements?

Best of luck
Conscripted

Well i want the motherboard to very low power consuming as its going to be on a mobile robot. I want it to have up to a max of about 12 sensors and a single grip arm. It will have tank drive with two wheel and a caster. Im basing my design on the Hero 2000 robots. With a few additions like a web cam and such not sure what yet. Probably more like the HeroBot that white box makes.

Why stop at "micro"?  There's Nano-ITX and Pico-ITX as well.

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?
