MSI Wind Nettop 100 Intel 1.6GHz Atom 330 (dual core) on board Intel 945GC Intel GMA 950 Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • Intel 1.6GHz Atom 330 (dual core) on board
  • Intel 945GC ICH7
  • 1 x 200Pin SO-DIMM DDR2 533/400
  • Intel GMA 950

Pros:

Works out of box (well, after installing the drives), easy! Nice and solid. Note: came with two SATA cables (already connected at motherboard end) long enough to reach the two provided drive bays and color coded. Solid construction, more metal parts than I expected.

Cons:

drive bays in a piece of case connected to mb by a cable- it's a little bit annoying opening it up and fitting things in while not tensioning the cable connecting the two pieces together, but then how often do you need to open a case with only two bays?

Other Thoughts:

Pegging both cores at 100% utilization (dummy processes running pointless loops) for 15 min does nothing the fan can't easily handle at normal room temp (cyclical though, CPU temp runs up to about 58C then the fan cycles up and the temp drops). The HD I used (WD 1TB green) doesn't seem to have much of an effect on heat (if any) even when copying steadily for an hour or more. For these tests, unit was horizontal with plenty of breathing room for the vents but other gear sitting below and above.
