Slots

Mini-ITX motherboards have only one expansion slot. Gigabyte builds the C847N with a standard PCI slot instead of using a PCI Express one, which is a clue that the motherboard is not aimed at multimedia or HTPC applications, but at low-cost sales terminals, kiosks, and other business applications PCs.

It’s a shame that Gigabyte did not put a Mini PCI Express slot, which could be used to install a Wi-Fi adapter.
