ASUS Z97M-PLUS LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Easy install. M.2 slot.

Cons: 1) Boot drive selection is buried in the UEFI settings. Main page selection is ineffective, and thereby misleading.
2) No longer includes Asus' case header connector, that lets the user plug all of the case header stuff into one block and then connect that block to the motherboard. That was one of the nicest features of previous Asus boards, and I miss it, especially as the printing on the board is offset, and the manual has no layout.
3) If you don't already know how to install, the manual is pretty useless. Big stupid pictures that are insufficiently detailed, and provide little information.

Other Thoughts: Asus has slipped some. Hope the corner cutting listed above doesn't reflect on the board quality itself.

Intel Core i5-4570S Haswell Quad-Core 2.9 GHz LGA 1150 65W BX80646I54570S Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics

Pros: Quick, cool, more powerful than a normal desktop user might need. Handles light video editing and photo editing like a champ.

Cons: No hardware virtualization support

Other Thoughts: Note: I'm not using the integrated graphics
