Overall, this is a fantastic little PC that packs a punch - perfect for media center apps such as XBMC. Let's get the cons/warnings out of the way first:1. The power cord (or lack thereof). As many other reviews have mentioned, this PC comes with a power adapter but no power cord. The cord it needs is the less common "cloverleaf" (also called Mickey Mouse due to the shape) that is sometimes found with small laptop adapters. It is unlikely you will have a spare laying around so..
