It is cute.

The print height would be a real problem for me as a primary printer. Because I tend to print slow and fine my best surfaces are actually are facing the layers. This is why I print gears vertically.

I think this will be great for hobbyist, I hate to sound sexists, but most of the uses I can see this for would be hobbies generally attributed to women. You could make beads, jewelry etc etc. Small parts for crafting..scrapbooking. At that price point it might really be realistic for people to 3d print for more "purposeful" reasons. Not saying what we do doesn't have purpose, but I don't 3d print just to have a magic "part" maker, I enjoy the design, the "how" of the print. Printing becomes a lot more of the focus than the end product for many 3d printing pioneers which won't be the case for this machine.
