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.
