The single board computer has everything built into one board, including the power supply. Very efficient design. A solid block of aluminum transfers heat from the processor to the case which is a big heat sink. The hard drive is sandwiched under the DVD ROM.
This is a screenshot of my laptop showing the desktops of the Jeeputer and my Home Theater PC (HTPC). When parked in the garage, I can connect to my home network and control the Jeeputer remotely from my laptop. I have a remote desktop program (AnyPlace Control) that I use to do administrative tasks such as music database replication and configuring or updating software. It's very robust. For example, if a program crashes, I can send a Ctrl-Alt-Del keystroke and kill the offending app.
