    I can't breathe I'm laughing so hard. I've seen the Ninja OUTFIT. I can confirm as true. Damn Amazon.

    Don't care what it is, it's sexy as tits. I wouldn't want to plug it in though as the cables would clutter it up.

    Granted integrated graphics are getting much better, but I can't help but look at a package that small that clearly has no dedicated GPU or much if any storage and think that it's WAY overpriced. Hell, even at half the price mentioned I wouldn't be interested.

    I'm not sure "Piston" is a great marketing name either. So do I need a battery (PSU), engine block (HDD), and valve cover (KB) to go with this barest of bones starter kit? With all those ports on such a tiny box, I'm picturing more clutter, not less, not to mention a final price that is beyond what most would even consider paying.

    I'm now expert but if this type of setup could integrate the A10-apu from AMD the videocard would be crazy ! But still watch out the heat in this little box. Could also start a market for revisited PCI-x 1x short slot with a really low profile videocard. Since the fan is on the end it could suck the air fro the fanless vid card.
