  • Game library Between Retro and Community written! Too many for you! A lot of poor games to filter through. so-so
  • Graphics Limited library, not officially supported gpu. Amateur & professional coders are working on it. poor
  • Battery life Unit can go 10 hours or more, but the unit does not turn "off". If you leave it for a week... good luck charging it! awful!
  • Portability (size / weight) Awesome design, weight, layout, and size! so-so
  • Durability Shell is sturdy, nubs not reliable, battery charger not reliable. awful!
Detailed review
Great for a techie, with a desire to do some developing, and can work with Linux to some extent.
Recommend only to someone with patience. Do read the forum on open pandora before you purchase!

The latest firmware means that the unit can turn off and suspend works. And I don't understand how you can give a so-so rating for the portability. Absolutely agree that you would want to check the forums thoroughly before making a purchase decision.
