The CPU is peppy, very nice machine. I could see it being a desktop replacement in some cases, or a machine in between a thin client and a desktop. A little buggy perhaps and lacking software due to the fact that the OS is a fork of a fork of Debian and not necessarily maintained. I haven't connected a screen to it yet.
Overall I'd have to say this is a pretty nice piece of kit.
