GIGABYTE GB-BXBT-1900 (rev. 1.0) 1 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics Black Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Purchased this about a year ago and installed Fedora 22 without any problems. My system has 8 GB of RAM and a 120 GB SSD. The system boots quickly. Upgrades to Fedora 23 and Fedora 25 worked without a problem. Google chrome runs on this system with 21 tabs open and there are no problems using this browser.

Cons: WiFi drops but this appears to be a problem with my WiFi router. Firefox can get into a state where it does not properly shutdown unused processes and the system load spikes causing the fan to run. When this happens, I shutdown firefox and kill any firefox daemons.

MSI 6676-001BUS Intel Atom D510 (1.66GHz, dual-core) Intel NM10 Intel GMA 3150 Barebone
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: System was very easy to assemble. Dropped in a SATA drive and memory and the system was booted from a USB memory drive. Shipping and delivery from Newegg was outstanding--as usual.

Cons: Does not work with Fedora 14 or Ubuntu 10.10 out of the box. I did install Ubuntu 09.04 and did upgrades until I reached Ubuntu 10.10 with a newer kernel. At that point the system hangs on boot with an intel-agpart error. Linux 2.6.32 kernels work well with this system. Later kernels do not. Mepis 8.5 live CD works flawlessly.

Technical support from MSI said that this system is not supported under Linux. Rather disappointed with the MSI technical support.

Other Thoughts: Probably a good system for Windows 7. Linux support is limited. As a temporary solution I have kept the system running a 2.6.32 Linux kernel. This works fine with Ubuntu 10.10, but is not an ideal solution.
