    As far as the look goes, as was mentioned, it's down to individual preference, but orange has been our company color from the beginning, so we try and work it into most of our systems to maintain a bit of brand consistency. We were actually founded in the US and our global headquarters is in the South Burlington, Vermont. We do have a facility in the Netherlands, and our Co-Founder is from there, though that wasn't a primary motivation for choosing orange as our brand color. We specialize in fanless systems, like the one that was linked to by CochainComplex, and those have a different look, particularly our Karbon line of rugged systems. But to each their own.

    We have some other fun AMD developments on the way and look forward to hearing what you think. We'll be sending one over to Phoronix when it's ready.
    Ok I was speculating too much thx for the explaination.

    Good to see upcoming AMD Ryzens. The only thing I was missing from OnLogic - more AMD!

    In that case, they used an old generation CPU. The board I have uses the Zen 2 CPU. And th board costs almost the same.
    Here is my build: https://stargate.solsys.org/dyntbl.p...3&op=View&id=9

    The company originated in the Netherlands. Their "national colour", or however the nations historical favourite colour is called, is orange. Argueably this is a matter of personal taste but it might be comparable to "Stars'n'Stripes" design. Which I as german can't relate to too. This is why I think they use orange so extensively.

    ...so the most of their PC's enclosures are based on extruded and sandblasted Aluminium with some orange panels attached to it. I like it more then RGB gamer design. It looks neat, certainly industrial - I like it.
    But maybe Black and sandblasted Aluminium would look better but is less of an eyecatcher.

    btw. the extruded aluminium enclosures do look better e.g. https://www.onlogic.com/hx610/

    Jep, besides they use reliable internals like Crucial or Kingston memory IIRC. SSD's are usually with extended specs on reliability or higher ambient temps. Of course depends on the productlineup. But you can see they realy care about the parts and if they fit to their specs. Even if this sounds like advertisement - I'm just a happy customer..or my company/researchinstitute is.

    And now I'm really glad to see some AMD Ryzen Product among their lineup.

    btw this made my day:

OnLogic does provide that. Our IT department insisted on such a company for rugged "thin clients" because of the provided guarantees.

    edit: even if I know that I can build it myself way cheaper, I'm happy with those clients at work from OnLogic (back then they have called LogicSupply). They are reliable workers no issue - especially the passive cooled units are a good.
