Foxconn nt-A3700-0H0WBANA AMD A45 (Hudson D1) 1 x 204Pin SO-DIMM AMD Radeon HD 6320 Black Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Small form factor, lightweight, extremely quiet

Cons: no drivers, cheap plastic case breaks easily (to be expected), extreme temps for extended operating sessions

Other Thoughts: Bought this to use as a HTPC for a family member. Works great with 4g RAM and a 64g SSD (free with deal from NewEgg) running Win7x64, and blazes with Ubuntu.

Tried to remove the case cover to install the RAM and SDD, one of the screws was stripped right out of the box, and the cheap plastic "separator tool" broke one of the clips on the equally cheap plastic case. Not really a big deal, I bought it because it was cheap, I won't reduce an egg for that.

Also as others have stated, under heavy load the temps in this case get extremely high, but that's somewhat to be expected in a computer this small. I would recommend using the included stand and NOT laying it flat or mounting to a TV.

The real boon of this was I did not receive a driver CD. All attempts to get the drivers off the FoxConn website return 500 errors from their site, and I have yet been unable to find a reputable site that has them. And since one of the drivers missing is the LAN package, for the time being it's a (very light, quiet, cheap plastic) paperweight. Minus one egg for not including required software.

Overall for a light duty computer used for HTPC or web browsing, this is a good option (assuming you get the drivers). If you want to play modern games and such, buy/build an actual game rig.
