A Modern-Day, Xeon Micro Workstation

There are a few other possibilities to consider as well, depending on the customer. Our case includes one 5.25-inch removable bay, which could be used for anything from a hot-swap hard drive to a Blu-ray or DVD drive, to some extra USB ports or a media card reader.
Slap all that together and you’ve got an impressive Xeon-based workstation (or pint-size server) that makes very little noise but can render 3-D objects with ease, encode video like a champ, and crunch through business duties without breaking a sweat—and all in an eye-catching, compact design.
