Lenovo Desktop PC IdeaCentre Q180 (31102NU) Intel Atom D2700 (2.13 GHz) 2 GB DDR3 320 GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 6450A Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Pros: Compact unit, comes with vesa mount for back of monitor
and has DVD burner built in. Has multiple configurations for video output, stand and mini keyboard remote. Decent amount of usb slots and works pretty good.

Cons: Not quite as HD capable as people will want, slower 5400 rpm drive.

Other Thoughts: This was bought as a replacement pc for my oldest son who was pretty rough on his 5 yr old previous pc. Since it was meant to be a school use pc, it does the job nicely. He is able to watch netflix, stream pandora and get research and homework done on it. The netflix is SD, and I did have it briefly hooked up to my 42" HD tv, but it didn't see to handle the rendering for the HD signal very well. I've see some folks have tweaked the settings but I never intended the use to be an HTPC with HD capabilities. If that is what you want, then you will need to spend a little more, or wait a little longer.

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield Quad-Core 2.4 GHz LGA 775 BX80562Q6600 Processor

Pros: Good chipset, quadcore for under 200, one of the best overclocking chips to get at the moment (for quad that is). If your thinking about getting one, get one before they run out since the new Intel I7 architecture is out.

Cons: wasn't free

Other Thoughts: Haven't OC'd this yet, but bought 2 of them and both were SLACR chips. One for my media server and other for a friends media server.

5 out of 5 eggs Nice mobo with options 12/06/2008

This review is from: ASUS P5Q Pro LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Good motherboard with a nice group of options. Haven't OC'd my q6600, but the build went well. All connections were well marked and the manual explains things pretty clearly.

Cons: a little pricey, but the rebate helps. Not a full blown overclocking tweakers dream, but more than enough options to do what I want with the CPU/memory.

Other Thoughts: Can't wait to OC this thing.....
