    Now they're hitting the performance envelope that would allow me the comfort of choosing one (this rig would be a lot quicker with two sticks of ram in there and a decent hard drive), the price has hit the roof, I could make a quieter SFF system for less.

    One day it will tick all the boxes, just not today.

    Agree, I think they really missed a trick. I'd be happy with the price, if it allowed me to do a high quality tool-less upgrading of RAM / HDD|SSD / Cooling Fans. As is, I can't help but feel it's not going to last 5+ years.

    If I felt it would last that long, I'd buy 3 of them, for 2 workstations and a spare. Office PCs that are so tiny, easy to transport, easy to store, yet have dual display port.... Yeah I like that a lot. They are also hot-desk able size to boot. They lock away easily in a pedastil etc. So many good reasons to like it.

    Hopefully they will get there with the next iteration.

    Am I wrong, but when comparing the Brix with the Zbox, isn't it better to have the machine throttle and reach temperature rates of 65C-75C rather than 97C? Wouldn't the Zbox last longer in the long term with its temperature rates than the Brix? In short, while I like the speed of the Brix, I haven't purchased it because of its high temperature output.

    All I would use this for is watching movies and TV shows on my TV, and at nearly £700, Think I'd rather just buy a £400-500 laptop to do that...obviously it would have a poorer CPU, but you don't need a 3.2Ghz Haswell to watch 1080p media files...as for the 5200pro, well that doesn't look good enough for gaming anyway.

    At £700.. I really can't see the point in it.

    Can't we change the gaming settings to more realistic ones so people can get a sense of actual performance - nobody is going to enable AF with on-board graphics, and doing tests without it would let people get a more accurate idea of how it'll play
