    As a pc for airspeed remote console, inews command client, mediacentral... yes it works normal. But those applications can also run fine on the DIY system you buy at your local PC retail store. The design is ok, besides the huge external PSU.

    It's just a form factor I do not like. You can buy much smaller all in one pc's, for example Gigabyte Brix, for half the money.

    For example this model: GB-BRi7-8550
