Random question

Random question: you know when your in schools or offices... They nearly always seem to have those led down PCs where the motherboard runs horizontal instead of vertical?

What is that style called? And is there a reason people don't use them much in homes?

Desktop cases, as opposed to tower cases.

People don't use them much in homes because they take up a lot of desk space and can't have nice Windows. Generally those types of cases are used for htpcs where height is very limited.

Yep.

Also, many prebuilt computer manufacturers charge extra for a small form factor desktop like that compared to the standard tower.
