Pros: This thing runs very cool. The stock cooler is honestly overkill. I'm pretty sure they could've used less metal or skipped the fan and been fine.
It runs anything a chromebook can do seamlessly and instantly, but I wouldn't rely on it for much more than that. This has tested as being capable of some gaming at low quality and barely squeezing 30 frames out, but it could probably play older games fairly well.
It's not an i7. That's all you need to understand.
Other Thoughts: I'll be honest, I don't know that I would trust any of the lower end kabini processors, but this one does the trick quite nicely.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI AM1I AM1 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Quite simply, it works. Setup was quick and relatively painless.
Cons: As previously stated, no USB 3 header (I was aware of this when I purchased it, but even budget boards should have one).
BIOS is super basic, it approaches laptop levels of usefulness.
Other Thoughts: Truthfully, this a fantastic product for the price. It's extremely limited in what it can do, but the type of processor this is designed for isn't meant to do crazy things. You don't overclock Kabini, you're not supposed to attach a TITAN Z to it.
This is what you buy for that uncle or grandparent who needs to be able to read their email on a budget. It does that in leaps and bounds. If they graduate to Youtube, this can do that great too.
If you understand what this is meant for, it really is a good pick.
This review is from: 10/100Mbps USB 2.0 to RJ45 Lan Network Ethernet Adapter MAC PC Win7 32/64 Bit
Pros: Cheap. If only it worked.
Cons: Rather than an easy to use or setup driver, they've instead opted to offer multiple folders with literally thousands of files, none of which work.
Other Thoughts: I've only tried to use this on an old Vista machine, but considering it should've worked within the first couple of minutes and I spent over 30 minutes running every setup file I ran across (there are many), I never actually managed to install a driver.
More to the point, Windows was unable to find one either on it's own, or among any of the many files it held. Don't waste your time, spend a little more money and get decent equipment.
