[LAD] Suggestions for new HW

Hello all,

Yesterday my main home system decided to 'meet its creator'.
The power supply sort of exited in a funny way, producing 
unhealthy odors and some noises. I can still start the HW
using a spare PS, but the / filesystem seems beyond repair,
with fsck freezing the machine when trying to fix it - never
seen that before. Strangely enough I can still mount it and
was able to copy some directories from it that were more 
recent than the last backup. I wonder if it's just the
file system being damaged or the disk HW itself.

Anyway after 8 years it's probably time for some new HW, and
I've been considering one of the 'Shuttle' boxes. Florian 
Faber already recommended them some time ago, but I wonder
if anyone out there can report on them, or offer some advice
as to which series to prefer, what to avoid, etc.
