$1k for a fanless Atom PC? Plus, even the "Micro" Business PC is huge: 23x24 cm (9x9.4" in legacy Imperial units). The HFX fanless is 43x45 cm and will set you back about $2.5k. It is in the category of "fanless i7 monsters that make the iMac look cheap" that drag referenced higher up.
Of course, maybe the quality of the thing is worth it; I would certainly consider it if I was Linus and made $200k/year and had a huge house. As it is I prefer a slicker and cheaper machine, preferably custom built.
