I think you might have gotten one of these two numbers wrong. My PicoPSUs run on 12V, but to the best of my knowledge Intel thin mini-itx boards (and I suppose the NUC, too) take 19V.
To the article: I like the direction in which this is going. Put a Bay Trail Atom in there, use a smaller power brick and add a second LAN connector and you might have my ideal portable NAS/home server.
All the ARM boards either don't feature USB 3, need a lot of patches to the Linux kernel and closed source components, want to be a phone (DragonBoard), are too slow or all of the above. Intel is at least supported by Linux out of the box and companies like Jetway offer boards very close to what I want for acceptable* prices.
* It's a hobby. Paying ~240 EUR for a comparatively underpowered board like this
is perfectely fine. If only it was thin mini-itx and used Bay Trail (low power and no nightmare PowerVR graphics)...
