The MINI PC trend 
Mini PC are a growing trend in personal desktop computing.
With their minimal footprint, smaller than one liter capacity box, you can mount it at the back of your monitor, or just put beside it.

Low energy consumption with a small external power supply, some fast USB 3.x, DDR4 2666 MHz RAM, M.2 / NVMe Solid State Disk, UHD 4K graphics with one or two HDMI port. Some embed a practical memory card reader too.

They're not hardware monsters for gaming, but nevertheless are a good compromise between expensive AIO and traditional solutions,

Generally silent (some of them even fanless), they are the generalized evolution of the well estabilished Intel NUC concept.

A Search Engine Historic retrospective 
It seems light years away when Sergey Brin and Lawrence Page worked on their Backrub @ Stanford, putting the bases for their Google enterprise.

The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine
is the description of their Google prototype.

At that time, Indexing and collecting web resources was in its early days. No deep user profiling, no search content-oriented ads, and so on.

I go back to the Archive to find the barebone frontend of these old knowledge access points, surpassing crawlers, spiders, and glorious directories.

Here are:

The Yahoo early experience in 1996

And (at that time) my favourite Altavista, of course.

The first Google home page in 1998

I remember the first 37 search engines found by 37.com:

altavista, yahoo, infoseek, excite, hotbot, mozilla, webcrawler, planetsearch, google, huskysearch, looksmart, lycos, magellan, snap, yahooligans, healthfinder, intelihealth, dictionary, pcgame, filez, cnn, newsindex, encyclopedia, lawcrawler, euroseek, euroferret, webwombat, ananzi, metacrawler, cyber411, highway61, miningco, dejanews, rex, whatuseek, savvysearch, northernlight

It was really (web) Space 1999!

And then I remember some pioneers of advanced web robots and metasearch tecniques at the beginning of this millennium..
