Pros:

Small, silent, runs Windows great (see other comments).

Plays 1080p MPEG-2 & some 720p h264 content fine on Linux .

Cons:

Struggled mightily with any 1080p h264 content, and some 720p h264 content on Linux, whether using the open source or ATI drivers.

Other Thoughts:

My intention was to use it as s MythTV frontend (I hate having a big loud PC in my living room & bedroom). I didn't do my homework when I bought it, but quickly learned that ATI video is not the way to go for an underpowered Linux HTPC. Replaced it with a Zotac ID80 (with a Nvidia card), and no more problems...

Turned it into a kid's Windows PC, and it is very nice for that.
