Nice, but the starting price should be under U$1,000.

Who on earth would shell out almost $2k for one of these?

Can it run Crysis 3? I'm guessing not. On-board graphics?

I think I'd rather build a bigger PC, with PCI/PCI-E cards installed, rather than having a bunch of USB devices hang from it.

This would make one heck of an htpc, Except for one huge drawback. Who in their right mind would spend that much cash on a lower powered system like this when you could build your own powerhouse with a huge variety of great small cases and fantastic hardware that's on the market now.

A BGA GT3 Haswell or Kabini will work much better in one of these when they are released.
And like others said, adjust the price.

April fools for the price anyone? :-) plus a serial port? Is for consumer or industrial applications?

Seems for industrial use, given its price and legacy ports.

Definitely not a home PC.

with on-board Intel HD 3000 graphics

Well, it's not on-board anymore (it's on-die/chip), so i guess we'll have to stop using the phrase.

"Integrated" still makes sense, though.

And i must say, pretty big step down from an i7 to a Celeron!

TG for the DVI and VGA connections, I dont know what I would do without that functionality.

2002 and 1987 called and they want their video standards back.

$1,820 and no HDMI, sounds like a pretty good HTPC to me.

No doubt it takes some careful engineering to keep an i7 cool in that package, but for $1800 i could buy two shuttle XPC units with i5 CPUs and HD3000 graphics, PLUS a pair of really nice monitors.

a 3.3 GHz Intel Core i7-3610QE processor paired with an integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics card.

I didn't know Intel HD 4000 was a dedicated GPU...
FYI Tarun, like ojas pointed out, its an IGP.
Starting price is $1820? So stealth-PC is selling a $250 celeron-4gb ram-500gb hdd-IGP HTPC for $1820? I understand you gotta make a profit, but this sounds more like a bad april fools joke.

If only it had GTX680MX inside, then the price would be just about fine.

This is for industral use, I would to work for company that sold retail computer equipment and most sytem would cost 3-4x as much as a "personal" version. You have to consider the fact that size is very import in business so if a store has a Kisok or even register system etc, the smaller foot print can save them money in the long run. The fact this can easlly be hidden as well works for a business so they can keep a certain apperance to there customers.

NO. NO. NO.

This is NOT for industrial use. (Headphone jack, 4xUSB3 and microphone). Industrial PC's don't usually have many outputs (often no graphics either).

This product makes NO SENSE and is marketed to people with more cash than brains.

If you really want a small, quiet PC get a Mac Mini and add Windows or Linux instead or as dual-boot if OSX isn't your thing.

Sounds overpriced and pointless, when you could get a much more functional tablet for a whole lot less, they also should have used an APU to make it a lot more functional

Well it actually does make sense in retail Kisok I have personally installed many type of system with many inputs that you think are not or won't be used. Industry is way different from the personal computer world and as crazy as you might think or even come up with "better" solutions the fact will still remain that businesses and system resellers/vendor will probably use these type of boxes.
