2 out of 5 eggsNot happy!

Pros: Great if you are willing to max out the memory, purchase a solid state drive, and somehow get your hands on a copy of Windows 7 Starter.

Cons: I could not get any version of Linux to play well with this box because of issues with the HDMI drivers. If you run any version of Windows 7 other than Starter, you will be extremely disappointed with performance. Even with Windows 7 Starter I could not properly install Windows updates.

Other Thoughts: I submitted an RMA request not too long ago. I hope customer service is better than this purchase.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your money

Pros: small size and low power

Cons: RedHat Based OS won't install, they don't like the VIA cpu

Other Thoughts: Only thing I could get to install was Ubuntu 12 and 14 server and Debian 7.4. The ethernet port would unlink itself the minute the nic was brought up.

5 out of 5 eggsFine little box

Pros: Small form factor, fairly quiet, no hardware issues

Cons: slightly weak cpu

Other Thoughts: I've owned this for about a year now and haven't really had any issues with it. Running Windows 8 and use it as a htpc with XBMC. Haven't had any issues playing back any sort of video I've thrown at it but I admit I don't throw anything very heavy at it either. Installed an SSD and maxed the RAM. Boot times are quick and haven't really seen any hangs.

3 out of 5 eggsCorrection on RMA Turn Around

Pros: As previously stated

Cons: As previously stated

Other Thoughts: Update: In the end the total turnaround for the RMA was about a month. They sent me a new unit which has been running for a week without shutting it off. I never did get a MIR form by the way. Have not checked video performance yet to see if the shearing has been corrected with the new unit.

2 out of 5 eggsEvidently you get what you pay for.

Pros: RMA was quick for approval. Support forum was also responsive and helpful. Do not have to pay for an OS. Can configure with your own drive. Small size. Does not have a horrendous ATI video chipset, and has HDMI out. Has USB 3 and BT as standard. Very portable, good price.

Cons: Needed an RMA after 3 months. Runs hot (probably can't do much about that other than engineer the cooling ports a bit better). Died after only 3 months. Does not support dual display. Needs a 19V PS.

Other Thoughts: Configured with SSD and 4GB RAM. Video pixel shearing and stutter even on SD files in WMP, XBMC, and VLC. Completly died after 3 months. After sending in RMA, it took almost 3 weeks before they sent ACK that RMA was received at warehouse. At time of writing this, min turnaround will run to 2 months. As evidenced by other reviews, it would seem that this item is simply not reliably built and prone to failure very soon after purchase, making you liable to a less than desireable RMA procedure.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for what it is...

Pros: Size. The pictures make it look small, but it is just plain tiny. Runs Windows 7 fine - forget anything else (see other thoughts). The processor performed better than expected, it exceeded the performance of an Atom 330.

Cons: Unfortunately there were a few issues.
1. The one I got completely died after about 5 days. When I say dead, I mean like paper-weight dead. I probably got a bad one from the start, maybe these other cons are related.
2. Windows XP did not run well on the machine. This seemed mostly due to poorly written drivers (Win7 x64 worked great). Vista will not even let you install (says its an incompatible processor).
3. I couldn't get any output from the DisplayPort using an DP to VGA, or DP to DVI adapter. Could be related to the bad MB I got, or the graphics card may support native DP only.

Other Thoughts: I was able to install Windows XP and Windows 7 using an SD card without any issues. The free wintoflash utility quickly turned my XP CD or Win7 DVD into a bootable SD card.

After the machine completely died, I returned it to NewEgg to purchase the AD10 instead (hoping that the DP would work with an adapter for dual monitors). The AD10 works much more as I desired. See me review there for more info.

4 out of 5 eggsBlinding fast booksize

Pros: Nano x2 absolutely destroys Atom dual-core, by far the fastest embedded processor on the market. Super low power consumption, plenty good for what it's supposed to do, give you a small quiet low power system. Good for light web browsing and some flash games, also pretty good for retro gaming. Half-Life runs great! Tossed 4gb of RAM and a 120gb Corsair Force 3 SSD in.

Cons: The VX900H IGP. While the processor blows the Atom away, the graphics are humbled even by Intel HD 2000, let alone the nVidia ION and ION 2 on more high end Atom systems.

Other Thoughts: I wanted something small and light to browse the web or play some old games when I don't want to power on my monolithic desktop. I preinstalled the operating system on the SSD from my desktop, made sure to put in proper drivers, too.

3 out of 5 eggsTiny

Pros: Tiny, palm-size, nice fit-and-finish, easy to install HD and RAM.

Cons: It's really weird to install an OS on this thing because it only has 2 USB 2.0 ports and the other 2 USB ports (3.0) aren't available until you install the drivers in Windows. So, you have a USB DVD-Drive taking up one USB, and you're left with one port for a keyboard or mouse. Unless you have a combo mouse-keyboard that uses a single USB port, you'll need to swap your keyboard and mouse around as needed until you get all the drivers installed, not fun.

I tried installing 64-bit Win7 Home Premiere on this, but afterwards it was VERY slow. So slow that Task Manager was taking like 30% of the CPU (that's 60% of one core!) just by looking at it. I decided to try and install 32-bit Win7 and that went much better. I guess I don't really need 64-bit Windows on this anyway.

I couldn't get it to play 1080p movies, but could play 720p MKVs ok. Maybe there's a special driver that uses the onboard video hardware to play it, but playing a 1080p now takes 100% CPU, which is both cores

Other Thoughts: I would recommend using an SSD in this, just because it does get really warm. When I tried a hard drive in it, the thing was burning up after a Windows install. Not good.

This is really only good for playing 720p video, some light web surfing, word processing, etc. Definitely slower than my old Pentium M laptop. But it's a good first, cheap computer for your little one. I bought it for some software testing and because it's so freakin' small. I wish there was an i3 at this size! I'd like to try out their AMD E-350 version (AD10), but I'm guessing it's about the same. It may play 1080's tho.
