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:

Low power draw, even under max load.
Small form factor.
Dual core at a decent price.
Great for general use.
Quiet.

Cons:

2GB memory limit.
Bright blue LED power light (not really a con but, could be annoying to some).
Fan Whir.

Other Thoughts:

The fan, even at full speed isn't loud however, as its being throttled depending on system activity, it does have a distinct whir that can annoy some. Its honestly not a big deal to me.

I use it for data backup on my network, as a print server, and for media sharing. Its a good choice for the job since I can leave it on 24/7 and its always available on my network when I need another computer to print or back something up.

The most graphically intense can you can run on it is Quake Arena (its obviously not for gaming). However, it handles hi-def video well. If you need a little more power out of the GMA 950 adapter, you download GMABooster and increase its clock from 166MHz to 400MHz (2.4x boost) safely.

I've never had any problems with over heating ever. If you mount it vertical, read the manual and make sure its right side up (cooling fan toward the top) or sideways with the vents clear. It should not need any 3rd party cooling mods.
