1) Small form factor. It can be placed just about anywhere. I prefer the styling to the similar Lenovo Q and Acer Revo series;
2) It is very quiet -- unlike the full size AMD FX8350 system I built for the home theater in the family room;
3) Very attractive case with nifty light through slit in front of the PC;
4) Wireless 802.11ac networking. This enables it to communicate very quickly with the PC on which I store all of my audio and video;
5) Good connectivity with 4 USB 2.0 and 2 USB 3.0 ports, audio and microphone plugs, HDMI and standard VGA outputs;
6) The 3.5" 500G hard drive is easy to remove and replace so you can upgrade it easily, unlike the Lenovo and Acer models.
7) Very inexpensive.
8) While the case is made of plastic, it feels solidly built.
9) Very portable.
10) The Intel 4000 graphics is adequate for 1080p video and audio.
1) It is slow in that it uses a Celeron dual core processor. It scored a meager 877.5 on PerformanceTest 8. If you need more power but like the small form factor, the ASUS VIVO-PC VMB60 uses an I3 or I5 processor, but costs about $100 to 200 more and is done in a brushed black rather than the attractive gold of this PC;
2) I would like a front panel USB port to connect jump drives to.
3) It came with a wired keyboard and mouse. I purchased a Logitech tk820 all in one wireless keyboard with a built in touch pad so I didn't have to mess with a mouse where I did not have a place to use it.
4) Windows 8.
I am seriously considering buying a second one for the home theater system. You may want to compare this model to the similar Lenovo Q series or Acer Revo. If you can build your own system and have an operating system floating around, you may also want to consider the Intel NUC series or Gigabyte barebones PC which requires the addition of a hard drive and memory.
Update: Windows 10 "Technical Preview" was a breeze to install (despite the warnings, you can easily "roll back" to Win8 if you don't like it). Settings were maintained over the transition. It boots and shuts-down very quickly -- as fast as my Mac with SSD, which I know sounds impossible. So far, about a week in, Win10 seems stable and fast. The "Start" button is back, more or less, disguised as the Metro/Modern interface (active tiles). The Logitech ball camera was recognized automatically and integrated into Skype (a 24" 1080p TV and a wireless Logitech keyboard/touchpad complete the system). All together, this is an incredible value, so I am improving my score to 5/5.
I bought it as a science project. I wanted something with a small form factor for my desk which boots up quickly, and this does the trick. I'm using it for web, email, work processing, excel and some legacy games (not graphically intense), and various other stuff. Nothing CPU intensive or cutting edge. My USB DVD Writer stacks nicely on top, and my WD passport sits nicely on top of that too. I like all the USB Ports (email@example.com + firstname.lastname@example.org) plus SVGA and HDMI outputs. I'm not using it for A/V so I cant give an opinion.
The only change I wish for would be that the power on/off button would be on the front or side, and that the USB ports would be on the side - (all ports are on the back) - but that's a nit.
If you don't need a laptop or an intensive Gaming or A/V machine, this unit is a real bargain!
Spring 2015 - upgrading the internal hard drive: on the 2nd try, I found an external hard drive enclosure that works from Sabrent: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LS5NFQ2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Asus makes the best most reliable computers and boards I have used in the last 10 years. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS RODUCT AND THE MANUFACTURER.
