lots to be desired
Pros: neat setup, small size. mount to back of a monitor or wall. wifi works right out of the box. still has windows 7, not windows 8.
Cons: very slow right out of the box. not an awful lot of bloatware, but enough to uninstall a few things. Nothing is instant with this computer. it is painfully slow and i believe it is because of the hard drive. Im thinking I could speed it up to an acceptable level with either a 7200 rpm with decent cache or an ssd. Otherwise the specs are "okay". 2 gb ram isnt a huge amount but enough to get on the web and do basic things. Im thinking atom processors are a poor choice and also contribute to the slowness of this system but not as much as the hard drive does here.
Other Thoughts: I deployed this for a customer who needed a very specific setup. must have windows 7 64, pc must be behind a wall out of the shop area which is really dirty and only monitor, kb and mouse are located in the shop for which it is to be used. It works well for this and lets them use their proprietary software. Luckily it wont be heavily used for anything else because you will have to wait a minute after you click on anything, including IE and FireFox.
