Like any other SFF design, you're trading off some things for size.
E.g. you can't use a high-power CPU because you can't dissipate that
much heat because your heatsink is really small.  You can't get big
storage because you can't fit a 3.5" disk.  And of course, you pay
extra for the fancy small chassis.

If your offices are in shipping containers and you absolutely can't
afford to spend space on a regular desktop, these things make total
sense.  If you have some space under your desk, you can buy a Dell
SFF.

Xi3 also keeps calling me since SC12.
