Pros:

Cheap
Very playable Minecraft
Works better than my old Athlon II x2 3.0ghz / Radeon HD 5450 Desktop, and it costs less than that combination

Cons:

Uses integrated RAM (well it is an APU)

Other Thoughts:

Running Ubuntu 13.04, runs Minecraft 40-50fps on Normal view distance with all other settings turned up and Vsync off (so like max smooth lighting, fancy graphics, advanced opengl, max particles, etc.).

Built my mom a $210 linux desktop (after rebates, not including mouse / keyboard / monitor / speakers) that runs Minecraft reasonably well. Theoretically, it should be able to play games better than my old Athlon II x2 3.0ghz / Radeon HD 5450, albeit not much better, and I was able to play Skyrim on that thing (with a heavily modified configuration, as well as 800x600 resolution with 4x MSAA, still looked ok actually, ran a few mods too like open cities).

Difficult to overheat this thing. Could probably build a custom linux ISO, but for an AMD APU 3.2ghz is a solid low-end icicle compared to some stuff they've been putting out. I put a bigger heatsink/fan on it, but it probably doesn't need it.
