Great little machine


Overall a good value, I recommend.

Great little box. I own the 915, 945, and 965 versions. All of them work perfectly. Reasonably quiet - silent when idle. I bought a handful of these for a customer and liked them so much I outfitted my office with them

Onboard video is kind of weak - but that is intel not MSI ; MSI doesn't really do any support - no bios updates, etc
