Perfect Mid-Range CPU
Pros: This CPU runs very cool and uses very little power. Despite this it is extremely capable. This is a fantastic choice for a HTPC or a mid-range general computing box. The integrated graphics are more than enough for general computing tasks and can even do OK with some games. I tested it with Starcraft 2 on medium settings and it did quite well.
Cons: The integrated graphics aren't enough for most hardcore gamers. If you're building a gaming rig then you'll probably want a discrete GPU.
Poor Choice for a Wireless Bridge
Pros: Great looking industrial design.
Cons: When functioning as a Wireless Bridge it can only connect to another WAP300N. It can't simply join an existing wireless network. The setup CD only works if you want to set it up as an Access Point. For other modes you'll have to use to the web browser interface which requires looking up the WAP300N's IP in the DHCP Client Table on your Router. I wish the setup wizard gave you the option to assign a static IP to make things easier. A static IP can be assigned later from the web interface. Finally, calling this "Dual Band" is misleading. It can be configured to run in the 5 GHz band or the 2.4 GHz band but not both at the same time. In other words this does NOT support Simultaneous Dual Band N.
