      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Not a great buy, and has limited connectivity

      Ok now for those of you commenting and wondering about this, firstly this is a barebone product, meaning the case only. You will have to get all the processor, motheroard, RAM, Optical drive seperately and basically fix it all together with some good know how.

      You can also get a few premade ones as well. However the actual unit by itself is a lot smaller than your average standard tower PC case, a lot smaller than any gaming rig would ever be as well. If you want this for portability then i would suggest a laptop, as now you not only have lightweight and more powerful notebooks but also smaller longer lasting netbooks.

      The product itself however is well made, the only problem i have is that it lacks some good connectivity ports. The optical drive is easy enough to install and the PC has hardly ever overheated so ventillation within this unit is fairly good. however not put in a nice place this case will get hot so on a messy desk you could be in with some trouble.

      The USB ports are of usual fast speed and I found it a bit cramped to wire everything in this. If you want a desktop you might as well go for something a little bigger as you can get good motherboards at cheap prices, but they will not fit in this case which also limits the speed of the computers processor you could put in. And that in turn is annoying because some operations just won't be done all that quickly. If you wanted a media PC you would be better off getting something a little bigger and adding a tv tuner in too. As you cannot fit one of those into this case very well.

      Overall I do not suggest this case, nor even as a desktop computer, there are a lot better cases out there and given that some more expensive and small case look a lot better, and have been made to house a bit more. I would suggesting leaving this one behind.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      very portable computer.

      This is called an AOpen miniPC Duo MP945-D Desktop Computer and it's aptly named. Why? It truly is mini. There's an benefit for you straight off. The amount of space you save by having this instead of a normal computer with a full size tower is an advantage not to be missed. In fact, the company that makes it claim that you can save over 40% of space compared to a traditional desktop PC. If you're anything like me and you always have a messy desk and keep running out of places to put things, having a clean up and then getting the desk messy again in a few days then this is ideal for you. Now you can have (allegedly) 40% more space to put your clutter. This computer is obviously HIGHLY portable which means you could literally take your desktop computer to work with you and back. It's also very light weight. In fact, this is even lighter than most if not all notebooks that are currently available; something not many desktop computers can boast about. This is great for those who are often on the move and running out of space!
