I haven't got the rest of the components yet, but I am looking forward to using it.

These 4" computers are the future of desktops but the stick computer is much smaller. Problem with the stick computers is no Linux and the cpu is fixed. I have a unit similar to yours and am very happy with the performance and the form factor.

Price was a big factor for me so I got a barebones unit for $150 (Intel Celeron 3205 cpu) and added 8GB RAM, a 120GB SSD. Total was around $200. Unfortunately prices have soared since I bought that and the least expensive unit now would cost more as 8GB RAM is now $80 instead of $40 and the 120 ssd is now $50 and if you can find one the basic unit is probably going to be closer to $200. The total would be $320. I see yours is now unavailable at Amazon.com too.

Here is a photo. Click twice and zoom to see the Penguin I glued on top. For reference, the screen is 38" wide. That is 1TB storage right next to it (on left) where I keep the backup, etc, etc, :)
