Reason 1: no cleaning.  A system with a fan requires cleaning.  Frequency 
of cleaning depends on the environment.  The desktop that this will replace 
is in a somewhat dusty environment.

Reason 2: I have seen (slightly) more fans fail than hard disks.  So this 
second reason suggests that a fanless system is slightly lower maintenance in 
the long term.

Reason 3: yeah, noise.  Really this is not a big deal, but quietness is nice.
