Small Form Factor Case

by Jerry Townson 7. October 2013 20:15

For those who want computing power that occupies less space on a desk or shelf, the small form factor case is ideal. Small form factor computers give you plenty of storage and processing speed for your important tasks, but they don’t waste space with add-ons and components that you may never use. They are lightweight and often sleek and modern in design. Depending on your unique computing needs, a small form case may be your best choice.

Small form factor machines weren’t very popular among the public until 2005, when Apple introduced its Mac Mini; since then, many PC manufacturers have introduced small form factor systems that vary in size (micro, mini, nano and even pico) and shape (shoebox, cubic, and mini-tower “bookshelf”). Despite the variation in how the category is defined, small form factor computers share certain characteristics, such as relatively low prices, efficient power usage and, of course, a size that is far smaller than a standard desktop PC case.

Small form factor PCs are great for use at LAN parties and for home theater setups since they are portable and unobtrusive; some of these machines even come with built-in handles for added carrying convenience. This type of computer is also perfect if you need powerful computing for your rackmount system but space is at a premium. Small form factor case options for rackmount setups include more than enough processing power and all the necessary drives and outputs you may require, yet they can be just 13 inches deep, ensuring as little space as possible is wasted.

Note: When selecting a small form case, it’s also important to consider the right power supply for your situation. Some power supplies are designed to run quite efficiently and take up very little room, so if your rackmount computing setup is tight, you should look into a power supply that’s up to the task.
