They are very cool little boxes for what they are, but they aren't that cheap (base price around $600), and they are somewhat limited in application. For basic computing, they are fine, but you will come up against some limits with them pretty quickly.

They do use laptop memory which is kind of cool

Umm...

The INTEL NUC can be had for under $200 US, actually I believe Amazon has the base model for about $180 shipped.

Personally, I would love to see AMD come to market with something like this using their APU. Or, in the least, someone else come to market with AMD's APU.

An APU would be a better fit here. This is more a light workload and media consumption system.... CPU is "good enough".

(since we are dealing with mobile chipsets)

You can't even properly view gopro footage off of the an a4/a6 as it's cpu intensive. it's not GPU accelerated. the CPU is not 'good enough' for anything outside of what one would use a netbook for (e-mail, minimal media viewing, internet, office). While I get nice fluent playback off of an i5, I don't see that on an a6. And then, while I'm on the go or at home I can peace together my footage, or at least view it at it's native frame rates and make some home made videos. An A6 doesn't handle that with fluency. You'd need at least an A10-5XXX... just my experiences with viewing 1440p video off the go-pro on an amd APU and benchmarks.

only most pro software, 600+ dollar software, is typically gpu accelerated.

Your issue is with GoPro.... it's 2013, much software that can be GPU-accelerated ARE GPU-accelerated. Where did you come up with " most pro software, 600+ dollar software, is typically gpu accelerated"?

What media player, CAD, encoder, render, etc does not support GPU-acceleration yet? Even HTML5 supports GPU acceleration.
Once again...

I wish AMD pushed a design like this for their APUs. Would work a treat.

The A10 5800K is significantly cheaper than the i7...

..that you are missing the entire point of the use cases.

Those benchmarks are comparing a $110 AMD CPU vs $300+ Intel CPUs.
This ultracompact computer is not intend for intensive work... and who would expect it to?

I'm kind of curious what it Is intended for. By the time you hook a Keyboard and Monitor in to it you've negated the advantages of the small size of the actual computer, especially compared to a tablet... unless I'm completely not understanding this thing?
