    OMG, so cuuuuuuuuuuuwte!!!!!
    I love stuff like this.
    I'm surprised this doesn't have a swivelling touch screen for Tablet mode... maybe not possible with the SFF, though?

    I wonder if many non-RGBers will hate on the backlit keyboard.

    If it is as cheap as they say, that could be pretty useful for engineers, as long as its rugged enough..

    I don't always try to be a downer but...

    For a Datacentre whom primarily have switching based off of CLI, this might be useful but they generally have them all accessible from centralised locations so they don't have to walk around it.

    Plus at the £300 ($300) price tag, you can get general purpose laptops with better specs as just a "walkabout and configure" system built with a Linux flavour or so.

    With the majority of networking and systems requiring GUIs, using one on such a small screen would be a major faff. I regularly am in Datacentres and sometimes working off a 12" 1080p screen is frustrating.

    Butttt, there will be some who this might tick boxes for as "don't want to dig out the big boy, the little one can do this just fine".

    Impressive specs though for such a small device!

    Now for appliance configurators dealing with systems that are programmed and managed by Serial, that's a potentially better use. One of my friends configures heating and water pumping systems for manufacturing lines and i think this would be perfect for him.

    Didn't netbooks die already? (still love mine)

    This may be a very niche market.

    This reminds me of the Dialogue FlyBook range of tiny laptops, but look worse.

    Was just about to say... This would've been the perfect opportunity for a trackpoint to save space... aaand they chose a touchpad which is no doubt going to be a painus in the anus at that size (or lack thereof)
