Pros: My HTPC is the size of a WII. (Had an old ATX case before)
Optical SPIDF!!!
Quad core; 250GB HD; 2GB RAM default.
Mods to HD and Memory is stupidly simple.

Cons: Can't boot off USB 3.0 for Linux install.
BIOS splash screen is not user friendly. For example "Press F11 to change boot" does not display. Just got to know/guess.

Other Thoughts: This is my new Linux HTPC. Ubuntu 10.10 loaded flawlessly. Thought I was going to have to use a scaled version like lubuntu but this box could easily be a normal desktop computer. Serves as my Boxee/XMBC, Samba, MPC, and overall Media server for the household. Hard wired to my router so I am not using the wireless.
So the "new" hard drive came with a foreign version of XP with Zotac test applications. Interesting to boot into and mess with.
Went ahead and formatted for the new Ubuntu install.
