The ML-45 measures just 22.0 x 21.5 x 4.4 cm (W x D x H) or 8.7 x 8.5 x 1.7 in, making the total volume about 2.1 liters. Its thickness is comparable to most nettops but its footprint is a bit on the large side. A vertical stand was omitted as it would have made the LCD difficult to read.

The chassis is a rounded square of aluminum just 1.7" tall, precluding the use of an optical drive. The front panel is completely solid except for the display and remote sensor. Small slits on each side (both top and bottom) and a 40 mm fan provide ventilation.

HDMI, VGA, and S/PDIF are offered on the back panel but the big limitation is lack of USB ports as only four are provided. The rear is also home to the power switch which normally be a nuisance if not for the remote control's ability to turn the PC on.

Thankfully the grotesque rubber feet are hidden by short columns of aluminum.

The power adapter is a 12V/5.0A model manufactured by Li Shin.

The remote has a few extra buttons that separates it from a typical Media Center remote. Direct line of sight with the receiver is required which makes it a bit of a pain to use at closer distances.

The other half.
