Pros: I can't believe that no one reviewed this little guy yet. I work in an office as the IT/ systems administrator and we are switching over a lot of computers that are antiques at this point over, i decided to try out one of these to see if it will fit the part of office able desktop. i was pleasantly surprised.
it isn't the fastest thing in the world, it isnt meant to be, but out of the box being able to put an OS on it (i used windows 7 pro 32 bit) and everything just worked. i hopped on youtube to see how the video was and it does have the processor pegged at 100% playing 1080p video so it is choppy, however at 720p you are perfect.
opening programs is pretty quick for a 1.86ghz dual core with hyper threading. it comes with 2gb of ram, but i purchased another 2gb chip here so it has 4 (18$ for a 2gb chip) overall i am satisfied for how this performs in an office area. it has wifi, bluetooth, sd card reader, and an IR remote included which, no one here will be using, but is a nice touch.
everything feels high quality built, from the stands to the remote. i like how it comes with 2 stands, 1 for mounting up on a monitor or wall, and 1 for a desktop like feel. the bios are wonderful as they are mouse enabled. i will be buying more and more of these as we need office replacements and will recommend to people looking for office type or 720p htpc machines.
Cons: i guess the processor could have been bumped up, as it comes with a media center remote but can't play 1080p video, at least not from youtube. drivers come on a cd but pc doesnt have a cd drive... should include a 64mb flash drive or sd card with them on. i was fine since i have dozens of computers and an external blu-ray/dvd/cd drive but others might not be so lucky.
Other Thoughts: i would totally recommend this to people looking for a budget pc for your family to have or just something really small that gets the job done.
