Pros: Small foot print and light. Nice large, bright screen with triple inputs (PC, HDMI, and VGA). Built-in wireless.
Cons: Windows 8 without a touch-screen, but that isn't ASUS's fault because the upgraded model has the touch-screen. Keyboard shortcuts don't work by default without holding Fn key. Haven't found the option yet in Windows 8 to change that. Keyboard keys feel like they wobble on top of a spring. Keyboard feels plasticky all around. Mouse is small, feels like a mobile unit in my hands.
Other Thoughts: Ultimately, it was a decently priced PC to use for my son's online school system. I've had it setup for a week while waiting for school to start. In the meantime I loaded up Minecraft and Garry's Mod. Both play just fine. Wished I could could have bought another Apple product instead, but this was half price. Despite the negatives, I expected a few corners cut at this price for the internal components/whole package.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fairly inexpensive; Temperature sensor; nice finish on the front of the case; 350 watt PSU; Plenty of room to add upgrades. No dents on mine! Side is a little off and makes it harder to pull off to get inside.
Cons: I wouldn't call the case paper thin...but it isn't much better than that. It seems to flex fairly easily. Instruction: there is only a little book the has case descriptions of 3 models. PSU doesn't look like much at all. I would say if the PC were constantly on...it may last a year...but that may be pushing it. No IEEE 1394 (Firewire for those who don't know IEEE).
Other Thoughts: Built PC for flient. Cheaper case-not going to knock it down for having the push/pull until the metal peice falls out kind of brackets. Careful...unclean edges with those. I love the way the case looks but would not buy one for myself b/c of sturdiness.READ FULL REVIEW
