The lack of a GTX 1080 really cripples these supposedly made for VR PCs. Even a GTX 1080 can't offer the best possible picture in VR, but considering the price of a Titan, a lot of us had to settle for the 1080.

Actually, this is quite a lot cheaper than most VR ready laptops. If you compare them to laptops, I believe you're missing the point of ITX and SFF desktops.
I, for one, would buy one, since the price is not a lot higher than getting the components yourself and assembling such a small PC.
The only problem that is stopping me is the reliability and qulaity of the PSU, since we don't even get any specs on that.

Quite right. Usually the psu is among the most cost effective parts of a brand name pre-build, often with just enough wattage to power original components. Just saying.
