Pros: um... inexpensive quad core...
Cons: it doesn't list clearly enough that this doesn't allow for integrated graphics, so while trying to build something for someone in a hurry it has not only cost me $30 more for a GPU but it has also cost me 3 days on the build.
Other Thoughts: I take blame for this, my fault for not noticing that a board with a VGA port would not put out video, because for some convoluted reason AMD thought it a good idea to allow a board built for APU to accept a CPU. I still feel the need to write this review.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Much higher resolution and much faster than comparably priced tablet found elsewhere. I watch movies on mine frequently and am always surprised at how clear they are.
Cons: Charging over USB is slow, booting is slow.
Other Thoughts: Once on, the unit is very fast, very responsive, and has a good battery life. Just make sure to turn it on a couple minutes before you want to use it. DO NOT break the charger that comes with it, the USB charging is almost unbearably slow.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: A perfect replacement for the Cooler Master Elite 341 I used for all my basic custom computers. The 120mm fan ports everywhere make for easy replacement of all fans. So many 120mm fan options that fit in any fan port make for easy customization.
Cons: A little more expensive than I had hoped. $50 isn't bad, but I was used to paying $40 for this exact layout previously with the 341. Would be nice to have an acrylic side option for the people who like lights everywhere.
Other Thoughts: There are quite a few 120mm LED fan bundles out there, and crazy deals on non-LED fans as well to make it into an office computer with great cooling.
I personally combine this layout with 1 fan pulling into the front, the other 3 fans pulling out, and an extra filter on the back of the front fan, keeps them clean for months even in dusty environments.
