The bottom of the unit is held on with four screws at each corner which also work as vibration dampening feet and are made of quite soft rubber. The four triangles are for fitting the unit to the VESA mounting plate. There’s lots air vents on the bottom too which is good for air movement.

    2GB of RAM seems like plenty if you use this PC lightly as a media PC, plus i’m sure it’d be cheap and easy enough to upgrade to 4GB if you needed it. Although, with Zotac’s ability to buy in bulk adding 4GB instead of 2GB would cost them peanuts, it does seem like they are shortchanging consumers a bit
