Pros: Compact & sleek
Cons: Unreliable audio: this thing is as stubborn as a child when it comes to outputting audio over HDMI. Seriosly it seems like magic when it actually works.
The WiFi card seems not to like to play nice with routers. Caps out at 1.5MBps with a Netgear 450.
Pros: It has some great marketing behind it.
Cons: There is something wrong with the WiFi card in this thing. I contacted Gigabyte and RMA'd it once. It was gone for over 3 weeks and it's behavior hasn't changed. It does not play well with routers. I sit in front of this computer feeling like its 1995 all over again because the network stack is so slow.
Other Thoughts: It took me an hour to RMA this thing because the people who work for Gigabyte's RMA department just won't pick up the phone. I would reccomend slecting the "Sales" option if you do have to call them because they will pick up right away. Also, be prepared to lose your computer for weeks at a time with no communication what-so-ever. I don't even know if they did anything to my computer because the invoice they sent back with it has no details. I sincerely regret this purchase. Caveat emptor: go with the times and buy a tablet.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Zippy, compact, and so quiet.
Cons: -The SSD is fast, but I think I'd still rather have an acutal hard drive for storage capacity and reliability.
-i5 seems very fast no apparent reason to spend money for the i7
-The HD4400 graphics do studder a bit it'd be nice to have a more robust graphic option.
Other Thoughts: -I wish it had an SD card reader--there seems to be enough space
-Ubuntu installed in less than 10 minutes.
-I had to update my WiFi router's firmware (Netgear N300; WNR2000V3) to get the Brix to connect.
