Hope you have another OS to install. Win7 is going EOL next year (1/14/20) and no free upgrades are available for this unit. Good for Linux, though!

Could this be used as a Plex server (with increased storage)?

Yup.

This would be an excellent blueiris or NVR or media server. Bit high power but needed if running blue iris.

Cheaper than building your own.

Throw in a dual/quad-port Intel NIC and this would make a great router/firewall box.

Not disputing that this would be good for pfsense.

While it would do for firewall duty, it is probably overkill for that purpose.
my "lowly" N3150 Zotac zbox ci323nano has passmark of 473/1655 (single thread/max passmark) and it just about idles all day unless I'm making changes.
it also has TDP design of 6 Watts.

The Zotac runs pfsense runs with an load average that looks something like this...

last pid: 64731; load averages: 0.07, 0.11, 0.15 555 processes: 5 running, 528 sleeping, 22 waiting
CPU: 0.2% user, 0.0% nice, 0.2% system, 0.6% interrupt, 99.0% idle
Mem: 106M Active, 214M Inact, 365M Wired, 175M Buf, 3122M Free
Swap: 1527M Total, 1527M Free

You might need a dedicated dual Intel NIC if you are running some serious bandwidth (multi-Gigabit) type traffic, but for most people with say less than 250Mbps down a smaller box with lower power consumption will run a lot cooler for something that is on 24/7

Are there every deals on any tiny desktops like the Lenovo M93p [lenovo.com]? This one is only 7" x 7.1" x 1.35" thick and 2.9 lbs. The one in the OP is 14.9" x 13.3" x 4" and 16.7 lbs.

You are soon going out of support.
