-ASUS still carries drivers and manuals for downloading
Cons: -I would have liked a manual and drivers disk but I'm not taking an egg for it.

Pros: -Decent price for a very basic PC with a 1 year warranty and OS.
-Additional sata slots
-Room for another HDD, 2 if you're creative
-plenty of usb ports
Cons: Really, there aren't any for what it is.
Other Thoughts: I like to use a simple desktop computer at home to act as a file and print server which isn't' a daily use pc such as a gaming computer or laptop. It was just easier to replace the entire box, then it was to take my chances with an NOS 1156 motherboard... especially for as little as this costs.
In the configuration I received, it has 4gb of ram and a decent 6000 series dual core. The nice part is it had 2 additional vacant sata ports on he motherboard. In my house, it's perfect. I removed the OEM 160gb drive and replaced it with a 1tb system drive and 2x2tb additional data drives. I then added this video card which you can get here: Zotac GeForce GT730 with passive cooling http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500368 and all was good.
I'm very happy with this purchase.
This review is from: X-Gene 01021 Black 88 Normal Keys USB Wired Mini Keyboard
Pros: It did work and has a very small foot print. Would be ideal for a pc that you only sometimes need to interact with.
Cons: I wish I would have looked at the pics better. I wasn't happy with the size of some of the keys. The backspace is super tiny and the lack of the ctrl on the right side of the keyboard is sort of what ruined it for me. Also, the action of the keyboard is very dull and not assuring.
Other Thoughts: I'm glad it wasn't too expensive.READ FULL REVIEW
