Hardware: Do not judge this computer by its size: while it may seem unimpressive at first, inside this tiny PC is 16 gigs of RAM, a 240 gig SSD, and a powerful Core i5 processor.
Display: Due to size limitations, this PC uses an integrated graphics processor. However, the Intel Iris Graphics series is surprisingly powerful and capable with 4K displays.
Design: As you may have gathered, this is no ordinary desktop. Intel has managed to squeeze some serious computing power into a tiny case, making this the ultimate portable gaming machine.
Power: Another size-saving design choice for this device is the use of an external power brick instead of a standard internal PSU, which may hamper its ability somewhat.
Upgrades: While it consumes much less power, not being able to adjust the power available to your computer can put a damper on future upgrades.
