Isn't AOE or iSCSI good enough? Well..

I must admit it's awful cute, but not entirely sure where it fits in deployment 
wise, and I guess if it were going to be my desktop I'd want more storage, but 
still not sure what to do with those 4 GbE's unless you want a rack of these for 
some reason ..in which case network storage might be fine, but are these really 
suited for that?
