I have a socket A shuttle, so replacing te motherboard is out of the question, and ive heard of socket converters so my question is:

Nope. It's funny, the Shuttle Cubes usually use Flex-ATX boards, like those little dictionary-sized Gateway Economy (E-Series) PC's, so you might be able to find a different outdated board...

Tom's decided to start promoting SFF on behalf of retailers BECAUSE of their limitted upgrade path, which Omid says is better for sales as it forces the owner to purchase a complete system, rather than an upgrade.
