    Although they call this device a "PC" - it seems much more like a NAS unit (though a rather well equipped one).

    Indeed it is.
    With extremely low power consumptions this can also be used as a home server, for streaming, etc.

    As long as the plug isn't one of those with one tong wider than the other, I'd say OK. Otherwise, it can only go into an outlet one way and often that way blocks the other socket. Engineers, BAH! they're over paid.

    It doesn't look polarized to me, and actually looks like it can swivel, I'm probably wrong though on both accounts.

    How do people normally access these things to control them from their PCs? Remote Desktop (or equiv)? Surely shell access would be too difficult for the average user.

    Ubuntu 11.04 has an ARM version. Just create a liveCD pen and you're set.
