It´s cladded with both bitumen mats for anti-resonance, and foam pads for noiseblocking. It´s got 4 Antec True Quiet 120mm fans and a Coolermaster EVO CPU cooler.
The whole thing is very quiet, during daytime you won´t hear it at all, in the dead silence of night you´ll just be able to hear it.
But it also weighs close to 20 kg, and you all know how much space a P182 will take up...
And here comes these new NUC´s and cabinets to match. And it´s got everything: It´s near-silent, ultralightweight and about the size of a DVD-drive. And pretty strong performance already.
When I look at the performance numbers, of course there´s a long way yet, before they reach the performance of my present system.
But I´m sure it will come before you know it, and then you can count me in for one or more around the house. This is definitely the future for "desktops" as far as I see it.
Looking forward to the next generations and reviews.

My new server is running on a mini-ITX mono I got from Bindi, but it's in a 4u rackmount case, which kind of defeats the purpose of small. It looks so lonely in there
