Pros: I love the Small package, the ability to power it up with DC (19 vdc) and the option to mount on the back of a monitor. It has 6 USB ports, optical audio out, and can be used as a dual monitor out (HDMI and VGA). Additionally, the use laptop components made it an easy choice for me.
Cons: Drivers would not download from Foxcon's website; however, the provided disk have appropriate drivers. Took a little work find/ make appropriate drivers under Linux.
Wish there was a package deal with one of the external DVD drives.
Not grounding Lug. The Audio input acts like it's not buffered, and is susceptible to RF noise and ground currents. After soldering a ground wire to a SMA-RP right angle (to get a solid grounding point), the 60 cycle hum and noise from a nearby AM station went away.
Other Thoughts: My roommate let the "magic" smoke out of his laptop and gave me it for parts, his old memory and hard drive fit and function perfectly.
I tested/ tried XP, 7, Ubuntu, Open SUSE, and Red Hat.
I settled on using a boot loader to select between XP, 7, and Red Hat - Fedora.
I chose to mount on the back of a monitor. Using a USB hub and wireless keyboard and mouse. This has made this a very convenient computer with a small footprint.
