    It's expensive but does look very nice and performs well for such a small form factor

    Weird that it gets so hot with a 15W CPU. However, I like the direction this is going - low power but still very powerful CPUs. Once you experience quiet computing you'd never go back to PCs with like 4 120mm fans rotating at 1600 or more rpm. Also, an average powerful PC now consumes almost 200W at idle. We should bring that number down a bit.

    You want more powerful CPUs? You should talk to lazy programmers instead. They should start optimising the unoptimised bloatware they keep churning out last decade or so.
