AMD A75 motherboards cheap as chips

Deal of the Day: ECS A75F-M2 for as little as US $59.99
AMD's desktop Llano offer has finally started to ramp up and we were quite surprised to see that you can actually find a A75 based motherbord for as little as US $59.99 in the US of A, or €55 in the old world.

Of course, these prices will bring you basic A75 motherboard but you still get a decent micro-ATX motherboard with up to four USB 3.0 ports and six SATA 6Gbps ports paired up with a FM1 socket of course. It's worth noting that USB 3.0, or even SATA 6Gbps for that matter is not something you will find on similarly priced Intel platforms.

Newegg.com is currently selling ECS A75F-M2 FM1 motherboard for US $59.99 with rebate ($72.99 without it) while in Europe, you can find the AsRock A75M-HVS motherboard for as low as €55 (the same one sells on Newegg.com for US $69.99). Of course, you can always go for a more serious motherboard and the price can easily climb to even US $149.99.

These low prices means that you can actually get a motherboard and top notch AMD Llano APU, such as the quad-core A8-3850, for less than US $200 and that certainly sounds like a very good deal.
