    Is that supposed to be "supports up to 32GB of DDR4" ? ;)

    If someone was to release one of these babies with a discrete graphics card in it (GTX970 mini), I would bite their hand off.

    I can confirm: I sneakily fixed it in the middle of writing a piece elsewhere and didn't 'fess up in the thread. Naughty!

    These mini PC makers miss a trick on these with the cooling. The Gigabyte Brix with the 760 in it would have been epic if it was about 50% bigger and used to the space for a super beefy heat sink and a single 120mm fan to push air through it.

    It still would have been tiny, but would have been cool and relatively quiet, instead of hot and noisy. I get the impression this would be the same outcome if MSI brought them out.
