Recent reviews:

I was thinking about building a micro ATX or mini ITX PC when I found this barebones kit. I love it – It fits neatly under the monitor, it is whisper calm and does everything I need it to do. You will have to throw in some SODIMM DDR3 laptop memory, a 2. 5″ or 3. 5″ hard drive, and install an OS. I nearly never hear the fans, runs great for informal use (web browsing, email, IM, spreadsheets, etc). The interior speaker is not great, it sounds pretty tinny, however I did not give the speaker software most of a chance. (I already have 2. 1 speakers from my old computer). Info:- Putting your present Windows DVD on a USB thumb drive to install the OS:– If you bought Windows digitally, you may be able to use some tools to create a bootable USB drive from the ISO. — If you own a physical copy of Windows, you may be able to follow these information to create a bootable USB drive, then just copy/paste all of the files from the DVD onto the USB drive. These steps are nearly same to the official directions found on Microsoft’s TechNet, except these also assign a drive letter to the partition, so that you may see it in My Computer:http://www. Sevenforums. Com/hardware-devices/275904-usb-drives-detected-but-not-shown-computer. Html post2271682- Windows 7 did not have drivers for ethernet or wifi, so you will want to have those available to install, before wiping your computer: http://www. Asus. Com/us/ASUS_VivoPC/VivoPC_VM60/HelpDesk_Download/- The device knew to boot from the USB drive the 1st time I installed Windows, however after that, the BIOS reconfigured and would not do this again. If you have to re-install Windows afterward, hold F8 as the computer boots, and you may be able to pick the boot device.

I agree with the positive reviews, so I will attempt not to re-hash most of what they’d already said. We just got one of these at work, and are planning to get more. Haven’t had any problems with cooling. So.. If you’re comparing this unit with offerings by others (eg. Intel’s NUC’s and Gigabyte’s and Lenovo’s and HP’s and MSI’s), you may wish to make note of the nice group of ports the VM60 will include.. A SD Card slot; SIX USB ports (two 3. 0 and four 2. 0), a FULL-SIZE HDMI connector (not a mini-HDMI) so some of you will not have to go out and buy an adapter; three audio jacks plus an S/PDIF out; and a good old VGA connector, which may be useful to have. Also, note that the included wi-fi is: 802. 11a/b/g/n/ac Many of the competitors are just b/g/n, not offering dual-band. Also, it’s great that it comes with the VESA mount so that we can mount it on the back of our monitors. Some of the other manufacturers don’t include a VESA mount with their units. But be aware.. On what can be a slight down-side for some users (but not for us), this model comes with the third generation i5 processor, not the fourth generation. And the graphics is Intel HD 4000, not the complete new from Intel (f’rinstance, I believe Gigabyte has HD 4400, and the Intel NUC uses HD 5000. Hope that assists some. Enjoy.

CAUTION purchase the right RAM modules The specifications here do not say that you need DDR3 SO-DIMM, the form-factor for laptops, not PCs. It is a beautiful package. I have not still heard the fan turn on to full speed, however it looks like it is going to be pleasantly calm. After watching an installation video, I thought for sure I’d bought the wrong size hard disk also. I bought a 1TB Seagate Hybrid hard disk in a 2. 5-inch package. It turns out this is just good. The VM60 comes with a spacer/adapter to use a 2. 5-inch disk drive. The papers tell use this with SSD, however it works beautifully with the small hard disk. The kit comes with screws to mount the small disk in the adapter, then rubber posts to slide the adapter/disk into the top and the SATA connector. So you have your choice of 2. 5-inch or 3. 5-inch hard disks. I installed Windows 8. 1 from the OEM package sold here. I already owned an external DVD drive. The BIOS required to be told to do a “full initialization” of the USB at boot time. Once that was done, the new machine booted the Windows disk. The install was uneventful, and so far Windows 8. 1 is not as bad as I thought it’d be. :/I am using a Logitech wireless keyboard/mouse mix pack, also available here. The computer recognized the mouse and keyboard at boot time, with the little receiver plugged into a USB port. Using HDMI to my old Dell flatscreen works just good. Everything about the machine was delightful. This one was for my wife. Time to purchase another one for me. :).
