Let's be clear about some things. I like small form factor computers. I've liked 'em from the introduction of the first underpowered little boxes without AGP slots. I like the latest and greatest ones even better, and I've reviewed loads of them.
But when the XPC SB75S arrived, something different happened. I got to looking at its stark, sleek lines and white pearlescent finish, and something clicked. I really like this thing, well beyond what a simple reskin of the XPC SB75G2, with the exact same motherboard, deserves. I know that rationally. But I also know that if a fire broke out in Damage Labs, I'd probably be carrying out the backup tapes under one arm and the SB75S under the other.
