This looks like an amazing product to drive a 4K TV in living room and for game sessions during biz trips or friends/familly visits on weekends and holidays.

would be great to have a noise test and more inputs regarding CPU/ram/GPU/price

I'm pretty curious about the inner layout too.

The box itself looks pretty great !

I dislike external PSU. It should be intergrated. I hate those bircks that are like 30% of the size of the product. Either super small or integrated.

get the barebones 9th gen i5 + RTX2060 variant, upgrade the RAM to 16GB, slot a cheap 1TB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD as boot x game drive.

THen buy an ITX instead. thats what it means to have an integrated power supply in a SFF machine. These are for people who want something super compact and not a laptop.

I did.

But the point is: these NUC type pcs could have psu integrated with about 20-30% size increment - which would still keep them at super compact category.
Instead of 11x11x5cm you would get 14x11x5cm and a single power cord. This is my dream.

Another nonesense is the ~1cm diameter cord for the appliance that only needs like 40W max. I mean USB-C cables are speced to handle 40W and they are at least twice as thin.
