Here's one customer review:
-Capable for office use
-Well chosen connections: good set of modern connections (only e-sata missing), no legacy ports
-Uses old integrated chipset, not new GM45 (X4500). Won't hardware-decode HD video. Vista aero will be fairly smooth but not perfectly so. Inadequate for casual gaming.
A decent office computer with a good design and small form-factor, rare in the PC world. Somewhat pricey for what you get.
It has a fan and I don't know how often it will come on or how loud it will be.
I give it 4* because of its promise. With Intel's new GM45 chipset it would instantly become an excellent all-round PC and could be used as an HTPC (and for casual gaming). Hopefully we will see a new model soon.
