Do like the mounting system.....If expansion is not an issue then yes it do the job.

It is tiny compared to my Atom based box [which I thought was small!]

Packs quite a punch

very nice looking box. 

The VESA mounting screws are a great idea... when my HDD-DVDR finally dies this is what I'm going to get I think.  Connect it to a NAS and a USB coaxial cable and it's all set.

Ye, it looks quite attractive;  have to research user experiences before deciding.

The E-450 (and GPU + Turbo) is definitely a bump up from the older E-350 (GPU but with no turbo feature). 64Gig-SSD might fill up quick, but it'll be darn fast, and quiet.  It seems to have a realtek Lan, so hopefully the external-usb-wifi won't be a Broadcom. wink
I'd put the maximum memory in it though, 4-Gig, and forget a swap
...now I want one too.  -lol.
