MSI AM1M AM1 AMD APU 2 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Best one to choose 02/15/2015

This review is from: MSI AM1M AM1 AMD APU 2 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Price, price, price. Seriously, it has everything you need for this type of set up.

Cons: Haven't found any - and I've built several computers using this board for my clients - they are all satisfied.

Other Thoughts: First, let's keep this in context - if you are building the world's fastest gaming computer, what are you doing here in the first place? That's not the target for this technology.

The fact is that today's CPUs and GPUs are way beyond the needs of everyday office and consumer computing. Your clients - and mom/grandmother - spend most of their time with the CPU parked, doing nothing.

That's why this is the right choice for that market - word processing, basic spreadsheets, Quicken (r) and Quickbooks (r), getting info from the web, reading emails, running genealogy programs, online videos, recipe lists, basic photo editing (not video editing), etc. Add a video card for simple gaming or HTPC.

Consumer or commercial, this board fits perfectly.

The low-wattage CPU will do whatever you need done quickly. There is no need for more than 8 GB of RAM - thus 2 slots. You have 1 PCI 2.0, and 2 X PCIe x 1 slots, for expansion. A 300- to 400-watt PSU does the job. 2 SATAs - 1 for the HDD, 1 for the DVD.

The truth is that you could use the expansion slots for a RAID card, or additional SATA connections - even an IDE hook-up. I'm building one now with a PCIe card for a HAM operator who needs a 4-port serial add-on.

There's room for maneuver - again, keeping in mind the target for this class of technology.

This technology allows you to compete with the lower-end Big Box offerings - or, if your really make service what you are selling, it returns you to solid mark-ups that we've all seen drained away with too big to really need components.

You should be able to build a satisfactory computer for the target market for under $300 in parts - a quality case with PSU included,1 TB HDD, the 5350 top-end processor, DVD burner, and 8 GB of RAM.

I highly recommend this board - and ask you to ignore the Egg Count as the date of this posting because with just one dissatisfied buyer, it is skewed way down below where it deserves to be.

This board works.

5 out of 5 eggs Keep the money you save in your poscket!! 04/11/2014

This review is from: vitalASC ST1011 All-in-One 10.1" Android Tablet PC + Leather Case/Stand + Bluetooth Keyboard

Pros: 1) Price
2 Service
3) Faaaaast!!!
4) Image quality
5) Includes a case and keyboard - case is high-quality and custom-fitted
6) Quality construction
7) Price! Price! Price! - Keep the money you save in your pocket!!

Cons: If I find one, I'll post another review. Don't hold your breath.

Other Thoughts: Ordered this and got a call within a couple of hours from their corporate offices (a guy named Clement) who told me that it comes with a choice of red, silver, or gold keyboard - which is not indicated in the NE write-up. I got red - looks great!

Upgraded my shipping from 3-5 day to 2 day - I can live with that!

Everything arrived on time - all in excellent, undamaged condition.

This is a new (so far as I know) company looking to get some buzz going about it - Clement has the right idea about how to do it.

I suggest you seriously consider this tablet - I'm overjoyed!!
