Pros: Small, light, compact! Free sleeve! Runs Win 8.1 (see below)! I actually wanted it to use as a tether to my NIkon Camera. It's going to be GREAT! It also runs Office 365 (not included) pretty well too.
Cons: Out of the box it's running a one year old load of Win 8.0. Show no fear! Disable all the Defender and Firewall settings and start a VERY long Windows Update cycle! Use hardwired internet if you can. At the end of about 100 (really!) You can then go to the app store and now get the FREE Windows 8.1 upgrade then the small list of those updates. Plan on a long time and don't forget to disable the real time Defender settings or it will be FAR longer (enable when done).
You can't do hardware upgrades on this box! Don't try!
Other Thoughts: When you get done with all this updating it's actually a pretty decent compact device and you'll be fully bonded and have a personal relationship. Don't wimp out on all the updates or it's not that great. After you are done it is pretty good but it's not an AMD FX 8 core processor! The 4 GB ram is about all you can really use. You are buying this because you want a decent price!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Performs quite well out of the box. It was a special so it was a good price / performance. This is a higher performance drive. It was at a special price.
Cons: Not any so far
Other Thoughts: SSD drives are the way to go.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: No auxiliary power connector required. Low noise. Pretty good performance for biz and video apps.
Cons: Not the hottest video card for games.
Other Thoughts: If you have a tight spot that won't fit a double wide card or you need a second card this one works well. ASUS cards are all well made and this small footprint low power card shows what they do well.READ FULL REVIEW
