Having a history of pre-LAN injuries from an active sports lifestyle (some how still active...) does not lend itself well. I'm limited to transporting my current rig using something with castors these days, bleh. There may have been a few instances of collateral damage while finagling the FT02 into my shitty old Civic, lol. This would make life a lot easier for a guy with a small and apparently fragile build such as myself.
The extra desk-side restate is also a huge plus!
NCASE M1 Case + Carry bag is an extremely likely option for my next build planned in Q3/Q4, this would be a HUGE win!!!
Smaller is better as it will enable more innovation and entice more and more company's to progress in order to create more extreme cutting edge technology in sff. Imagine having the GPU/CPU horsepower of a High-End gaming pc in the size of a smartphone or even Intels compute stick. Will be able to take it anywhere and no longer be stuck sitting at a desk with tons of cable clutter. Also lanparty's would be a breeze just take your miniature pc and a 4k monitor and your good to go while your neighbor has tons of heavy crap and wires to lug around.
It lets you build a powerful machine with everything you need in a compact, lightweight package.
It brings new challenges in cooling, noise reduction and cabling, and component selection that you don't get with a full sized build.
On top of all that, once you've got your build worked out, a small system opens up so many new placement options unavailable even with microATX builds.
