Small Form Factor Advantages

Over the past few years, the term “Small Form Factor” (SFF) has become popular with everything from smart phones to PCs. Small Form Factor is defined as a technology that is smaller than other similar designs in its field. With computers, the desire for a smaller size and leave a smaller footprint is expanding. Let us look at some of the advantages of SFF PCs and see why.

  1. Space– The most noticeable advantage is obvious. Its smaller, which gives you options on where you store it. Free up the legroom under your desk or reclaim some of your surface space by using a SFF PC. They can easily be mounted and stored behind your monitor.
  2. Smaller Footprint – Most SFF PCs use fewer fans and lower power hardware and so operates more efficiently. This means less power consumption and a smaller environmental footprint which is good for the environment and your bottom line.
  3. Lighter Weight – Small Form Factor PCs are lighter than the standard PC. That makes them easier to move around the office, easier to clean and even easier to travel with.
  4. As good as any other computer- Most SFF PCs have the same capabilities as a full-sized PC. They can support features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and multiple monitors.
