Pros: Very quiet cpu fan, very low actual measured TDP, in the range of less than 14 watts. DirectX10 graphics under W7. W7 performance measure comparable to a 2700MUD atom or an E350 AMD, but gives twice the speed, a score of 2000 under Linuxes, with the peacekeeper benchmark.
Cons: Gosh golly, no speedstep, meaning it stays at one frequency. No "governor=conservative" kernel command lines in Linux, they don't work. If you want speedstep, you need to go to a 65-watt package. Which is ironic.
Pros: I've purchased two (2) of these processors so far from the Egg so I have experience with these CPUs for their intended purpose - a low-power desktop and an entry-level file server. They do their job well and with little electrical usage.
Cons: Not even for everyday desktops; keep in mind these are low-power CPUs.
