    Who came with that ugly design for the stand?

    Yep, although it's removable, if you need it to be vertical, that stand adds unnecessary height to the PC. Wonder why they decided to go that route.
    Either way, the stand is not really "that" ugly.

    What's a shame is that the 4800U will probably be extremely expensive, but all in all it looks like a decent Mini-PC.

    Would love it if the max power consumption could be changed between 15W and 25W directly in Windows, or at least through EFI.
    That way you would be able to have a 100% silent PC for watching movies or whatever, or have a bit more punch when needed.

    Though personally I'm waiting for Zen 3-4 + RDNA 2-3 to get a bunch or performance on a small envelope (not that the 4800U is not already quite impressive).

    Kind of looking for something like this with 2 USB C ports. I use 2 USB C portable monitors (power and signal over 1 wire) on my with my portable PC and would like to go even smaller on the PC part.

    EDIT:

    This has my attention : GB-BRR7H-4800
