Pros:

This is a great combo to buy, they packed quite a few features onto this little Mini ITX board. I purchased this item to be a part of an HTPC unit.. The ION packs enough punch to get out all of the HD content that I give it from my file server, and it very rarely has issues.
It lives up to the "Good enough" philosophy that I believe they are going for with these ION machines. Elaborate interfaces such as the Aeon skin for XBMC will most likely require you to overclock a bit.. I'm running stock clock and it's usable but not exactly smooth.. this is a great purchase for a basic HTPC.

Cons:

If you understand what you're paying for then this is a great item. I would not recommend it for much more than a basic HTPC, or perhaps a fancy "file server with benefits". I'd personally opt for something a bit more powerful if you're looking to make this your multi-purpose PC mobo.. if you've got a high res display you'll run into performance issues with basic tasks.. the processor will hold you back.. This board was very obviously made with a specific purpose in mind.. but it comes with plenty of perks.

Other Thoughts:

I had problems with my first board, but that's just bad luck.. Newegg service was great as always and I am really enjoying this little addition to my home network.
