    Depending on price and only after it has been reviewed (hint Hexus!) this could be a perfect HTPC for me

    I love the idea of a small pc like this for under the tv say but doesn't it kind of defeat the point when the power brick is likely as big as the pc...

    I'm sure they could have worked something out for an internal psu even if it meant making it a little bigger.

    I've got a Gigabyte Brix GB-BXBT-2807, Celeron based, and the PSU is built in to the plug. It cost me £89 for the bare bones, £30 for the RAM, £50 for the SSD and £45 for Windows 8.1. Very happy with it

    Tricky from a cooling POV maybe, but I don't know they can't use the "large plug" style like most phones/tablets have.

    I'm quite interested in these, Brix or NUC as a tiny domain controller to replace the larger ITX box I have. Lower power usage and less space, and a lot more time on UPS power in an outage.
