Pretty sure those are mainly intended for home theater, point of sale, office and other computers that will have mid-range non-overclocked CPUs and nothing more than a stock GTX1050 or no GPU at all. Since you need to pass that 19V through a picoPSU or similar to power everything else as nothing in a regular PC works off 19V, which is also going to limit CPU/GPU options.

It's an interesting product, but not sure who their market is... I mean most people are going to use the PSU that comes with their laptop. Most People who lose their PSU are going to buy another from the manufacturer.

What would have been more interesting is if they partnered with a 3rd party battery manufacturer and sold a higher capacity laptop battery with the charger.

Depends what your definition of "SFF PC" is. My setup (i5-7500 and 1060) is relatively tame, but still probably needs ~200W or more under high load. I think the term being used should perhaps be "HTPC"?! Even then, there are HTPCs that will break this brick.

My old MSI GT70-based laptop (with a 580m) I think has a 180W brick.

ThinkPad P51 power supply is 230W
Aorus X5 V7 power supply is 200W

Not sure why anyone would want this power supply except for other ones that already have small/light power supplies...
