Pros: Easy Windows 8 Solution. Great for most office apps. Good for light gaming.
Cons: While it can hold it's own vs most CPU's. Even a few of the ones above its price. ( And that really is a PRO ) I thought there would be more...zip or snap to it. Like what I'm used to when getting into a new CPU architecture.
Other Thoughts: I'm re-building a MAME pc cabinet...I bought this before any real reviews were out. No real benchmarks or videos or really much of anything on it. Heck there weren't even pics of the box on newegg or anywhere online...lol. But I was like well maybe..just maybe I'm the only one...I'm the only who is going to find the PERFECT PC arcade solution..And you know what? it would be if I were just running MAME....and this IS a CELERON. Okay so why 4 out of 5 eggs? Because I'm Greedy and I want more than I pay for...A lot more; so if you want 5 eggs from me; I need to feel like I stole something ;). Where my disappointment started was trying Mortal Kombat Komplete edition on this little guy with no PCI graphics help, just Intel HD Graphics vs Sub-Zero...Well..um....Fatality...would pretty much describe frame rate and graphics options...But after throwing in a ATI HD 4770 this runs the same game (after a while to load) at full settings. Now to also be fair I do have a 7200 spinner drive as the main OS disk and have yet to put it all on a SSD, but that was never a plan to begin with as a PC arcade has way to many files to eat up expensive SSD real estate. Overall I may keep this setup and I think it would still be quite a great PC arcade cab, but I will probably get a stronger CPU because bottlenecking ( which most wont even notice ) Drives me crazy.READ FULL REVIEW
