Wow, this one really got beaten with the ugly stick…
Fanless is nice, but not when it looks like this.

Also, it’s 2018, can we drop the D-Sub VGA connector already?


The VGA connector is probably needed for point-of-sales setups.


“Availability and pricing are unknown as of writing. ” … so what are our expectations regarding price? 120 USD? More? Less?


Lol Intel.
