    Neat little box, thanks for the review. Only complaint I have is the CPU. Wish they would use Intel mobile variants instead of the APU or Atom.

    Looks like a nice unit tho not much of an upgrade to the Nano AD10 which I own the ssd is a godsend compared to the 5400 rpm drives they old model came with.
    Coming from someone who has used the AD10 which has the same fan setup I can verify that it is extremely quiet.
    Even on the highest fan profile in bios I cant hear it from 6 ft away with the TV volume on 2.

    I like, it reminds me of a supercharged Raspberry Pi. I think it would be fun to build something in this form factor.

    What about Netflix HD?

    Local content is no problem but I need to know about streaming content which places a larger load on the system as a whole.

    i always thought the HD6320 GPU is in the APU die (E-450), not in the chipset :rolleyes:

    I'm starting to look at something compact like this for a home domain controller/dns box but this one may be a bit overkill. Though, with more power, it could do more things in addition to that...

    somethings confusing me. on one page it says it has an external IR port (and a complaint about it not having internal), then the next shows an internal one.

    typo?
