The HeroBox Desktop Mini might be interesting as well.
$30 more, 10% slower CPU, but 8GB RAM and 180GB SSD.

The $400 Lenovo nano PC with i5 is twice more practical / useful than this one.

If you think of it as usable vs barely usable, there's a fair point there. I'd rather spend $400 on something I actually want to use vs $200 for a nifty form factor I end up not wanting to use because it's underpowered

I backed it during their indiagogo campaign. Paid 1077 HKD which is about 140USD. Should be arriving next week

You do have your point, but who's the targeted audience, usually the mistake we take. I myself would also wish it could be just a bit more powerful and use Linux instead of windows. So what I see is,
1. more powerful CPU
2. upgradable ram
3. gigabit Ethernet port is a must
4. may be linux instead of windows

Please add more, otherwise I sure love the "cute factor".

Can you run this entirely on USB-C? I have 4 USB-C monitors in the house and would like to have a device powered by the monitor(s) and video at the same time.

Gemini Lake makes for a great pfsense box.

Ooh that is really tempting! I could not tell from the description but is the RAM upgradeable?

No it's soldered but 4GB is plenty for pfsense IMHO.

If you want small dual NIC check out the Odroid H2+

edit: https://www.hardkernel.com/shop/odroid-h2plus/

Also, not a good option for pfSense (Realtek NICs) but they are 2.5Gbe
