I'd gladly take a thicker case, if it meant keeping the front nice and trim. The less bezel the better IMO.

... unless they want to incorporate a small LCD or two in that space. Then I would be *highly* interested.

Agree. Too much bezel. They should have made it deeper, and improved the quality of the speakers, and made the visual footprint smaller.

Why make something SO THIN, yet needs a big "foot" to balance it, and needs so much blank space to incorporate a flat-speaker system. At least they remebered a VESA mounting system.

But, IMO, it is a BAD DESIGN.

An Atom 2xx or Zxx is underpowered for a desktop replacement. It is not suitable for "office settings, to call centers, libraries, school computer labs". An Atom 330 might have *just* survived, but a single core Atom? No. The power/performance is like going back to Pentium 3/early pentium 4 days. We dont want that. And GPU? No mention of what it is running.

They've really built this on the cheap, hoping for a few lucky sales, rather than saying, HEY, let's do a great machine here. Really attractive to the corporate/public workplace.

I think I'd rather go with a Dell or iMac. OOOHHH SHOCK HORROR!

Still like the MSI model better because of the touchscreen, but this is very, very nice looking, too.

And you're saying a Single core atom isnt enough for office apps? I'm running something slower on my EEE as a desktop replacement and I dont have any trouble running any typical office apps. Imho you guys are way too picky in terms of features; its only the bezel. If the bezel turns you off from buying something then you guys seriously have problems.

In an office setting people dont play COD4 ya know?
