The word is "BRIX""The word "brick", when used in reference to consumer electronics, describes an electronic device such as a smart phone, game console, router, or tablet computer that, due to a serious misconfiguration, corrupted firmware, or a hardware problem, can no longer function." -wiki
Always something to criticize right? maybe try make one yourself? first they use all notebook components, the first thing we criticize is the gpu. Now they made it happen with desktop gpu. After that the memory is targeted being a SO-DIMM. Then what? Processor? Go to Alienware X51 page then, all desktop components. simple. Not that it is as compact and as small as this BRIX here tho.Decent specs, but I would much prefer full-sized RAM slots and drive bays, even if the device footprint needs to increase a tad.
