Pros:

Cheap, quiet, affordable, and surprisingly quick when coupled with an SSD. Blows my other itx build (e-350) out of the water in terms of general speed. A big bonus is that most Linux distro's will recognize all of the hardware from the start with out me having to install any updated graphics drivers to get smooth video playback. This is one of the few rigs where I could play 1080p material with out screen tearing out of the box. Flash video isn't the best but I didn't really expect it to be.

Cons:

No cons because I knew what I was buying whenever I got a low end celeron based board. Only real con was Newegg's new Surepost (slowpost) shipping through fedex which took the full 7 days to get here, but I won't deduct an egg for that.

Other Thoughts:

Great buy, extremely worth it at the $69.99 price point for a low wattage every day linux build. I picked one up because benchmarks of the 847 were showing higher than the e350 rig I was unsatisfied with. While the AMD rig does have more graphics oomph it still has to much noticeable slow down in everyday tasks. The RAM and the SSD in this rig were both from the e350 setup so I could do a more direct comparison.
