Its a mobile version and similar in performance to Ryzen 7 5800x despite the nomenclature

This is a mobile Ryzen APU which is always soldered to the motherboard, like a laptop. The performance is equivalent or slightly higher than a desktop Ryzen 5 5600X in multithreaed wirkloads whereas single threaded performance is slower due to lower TDP than desktop Ryzen processors.

Agree that this thing is overkill, but if you'll use it for other stuff it is a great option. I have a base M1 Mac Mini that serves as a plex server and also replaced my desktop. I absolutely love it and it silently runs Plex including media from a network drive, plus all of my live DVR OTA stuff - it's great and completely transparent to my other use and entirely silent.

Yes, it is. Go to Newegg and check the Gigabyte Birx with Ryzen 7 4800U barebone at around $554. That will still be a bit overkill but the price is good.

this form factor is called thin mini itx. the board cost about the same as mini ITX, with laptop style coolers, rams and 19V power inputs.

honestly this concept has been around for at least a decade (and i have build thin min back in the day with sandybridge systems), the price for this system is meh at the best. perhaps youtuber of today didn't touch any computer devices 10 years ago and thought this is something new, but it is not.

you culd get a thin mini AM4 board for like 130 dollars
https://www.newegg.com/p/2MG-0001-000A4?Item=9SIA4REFGX6047

some decent 19v power supply for 30 dollars, case often goes for 30 dollars. amd APU for 250 dollars, you can build it yourself for less than this product, and you can upgrade your processor as time comes (unlikley as AM4 is dead end, but point is you can change processor)

for example, get silverstone PT13-B-120 case, it comes with a 120 PSU

No. The APU does not support PCIE 4. No AMD APU to date does.

Before making the choice about whether to go with various Ram + SSD option, I strongly suggest you watch the review video I've posted in the first post of this thread.

The 16GB Kit comes with two Single Rank 8GB modules (Ram chips only one side of the stick) which reduces the performance by certain degree as Ryzen Processors benefits from dual rank memory.

My recommendation will be buying the barebone and then get your SSD and Ram. They're charging extra $150 for 16GB Ram + 256GB SSD configuration which you can buy yourself. 256GB NVMe SSD can be found as cheap as $30-$40 if you look for the deals and 16GB kit will cost $60-$70.
The review from Techtablets just got posted.

Memory
2 × DDR4 3200MHz Dual channel (SODIMM Slots×2)
Supports a maximum of 64GB(32GB x 2) of DDR4

Is 32gb really the max RAM? Some of the Intel NUCs list 32gb max but will support 64. Might have to wait until they ship I guess.

With 64gb this thing would make a nice VM host for a homelab.

Oops I misread the 16/32 as the RAM capacity… Guess it's time to start my weekend lol!

64gb capacity does indeed make this slick then

Does the barebones (without ram and SSD) also include a Windows 10 license? I wouldn't expect it to, but the page lists it...

In heavily parallel workloads because it has two more cores, yea. But in games and limited thread workloads which is most things, no.

Well I made a Windows 10 LTSC evaluation media usb and installed that. Then I went through some process in a youtube video and permanently activated it. That's what I did the last time I needed a Windows install.

I love the development of iGPU all-in-one solutions.
