Even with a built-in PicoPSU, you'll still need the main power brick housed externally anyway.
I would personally prefer a Mean Well or other similar solution;

- Doubt there are any fake Mean Well PSU's.

- More compact (due to not requiring two separate power supply units).

- I would assume better noise/EMI suppression.

And as a bonus, if it burns your house down or blows up your computer, at least you can say it Meant Well.
