Wondering what target market is since it has serial port which hardly has any applications in consumer space.

That I/O looks suspiciously like a thin-ITX motherboard. Definitely not unheard of in the AIO space, but still a good thing for longevity/upgradability.

Yea but which one ? perhaps a mobile chip to keep heat down in that sff...

Price not too bad, but the lack of USB-C is a big NO-BUY for me :)

If it's a thin-ITX board it's 99% likely a T-series desktop chip. Could even be 65W if the cooling is decent.

Nostrilcam
External power brick
Zero cable management (hollow stand? Looks like all the cables will be completely visible to me)
720p webcam.
1080p, sRGB gamut only

At least the price isn't too bad for the spec but AIOs are a terrible idea at the best of times. This isn't going to be a very good experience for the WFH crowd that it's targeting, not with tinny downfiring 3W speakers, a low-mounted and low-quality camera, and cable clutter everywhere.

This is definitely not suited for those workloads, but the specs you cite are not the reason for that. An i5-11400 is more than fast enough for both those workloads unless your demands are very high, and the resolution is ... meh. Fine. USB speeds are fine as well - SD cards and the like don't saturate USB 3.0. And the webcam? Like there is a single webcam in existence that is good enough for photography or videography work? The color gamut of the display, on the other hand, and the screen size? Those would be my main drawbacks for those types of use.

Most likely it's targeting the "I need a PC for work, please give me one that doesn't take up much space and can run [whatever entirely ordinary software they need]" crowd. For which it's no doubt plenty fast. That nostrilcam is a pretty terrible design choice though.

I'd guess data entry mostly.

That's the exact target market I figured this would be for, which is why "three strikes and you're out" applies here.
  1. external brick
  2. absence of cable (and brick) management,
  3. nostrilcam
If it needs to be small and neat, for WFH and web-conferencing, it's missed the mark by about as wide a margin as you can get. They'd be better off with a $749 laptop.

That's entirely true - a laptop is far more versatile, if less powerful overall. But some likely want a bigger display than a laptop, and don't want/understand how to use an external monitor with their laptop. The nostrilcam is definitely a major drawback, though one most buyers in this range aren't likely to realize until they try it. As for the brick ... I don't think these people care, or even consider the possibility of a brick-less PC. I would never consider it, but ... meh.

Workflow. Adobe CC. 10 bit monitor. 24-100mp images. 4k-8k video. SD cards v CF Express. Photographers may spend more on a carbon fiber tripod than this device. This is a low-end photographer's monitor:

Not all photographers or videographers operate at that level of cost or complexity.
