Thoughts on Dells new IoT Gateways as Interface nodes?

I've been looking around for an industrial PC model to take the place of several desktop-class pc's we have running as PI interface nodes.   I've been looking for something that I can push as close as possible to the source systems (mainly PLC's and DCS's), so something that I could rail mount right next to the PLCs is appealing.  We are a Dell shop, so one option are their new Edge Gateways.  Is anybody out there using these? Are they overkill (or underkill) for an interface node?  Are you using the I/O for anything?
