Summary: I spent 40. + shipping in addition to the full price of this unit in order to have it diagnosed/repaired before Intel came out with their free heat guard. The heat guard also was not effective. Then I had to send the unit back to Intel to have it replaced. This whole process took many months of troubleshooting, denials, and getting lost in rat holes while the real issue was determined. Would not buy again.
Summary: I loaded this machine with 16 gigs of RAM and Windows 8 - and it worked pretty well for a couple of months (I only use it on weekends, and it's connected to the flat panel TV in my den) then for some unexplained reason it lost its sound drivers and its LAN driver - I plugged in a USB ethernet adapter and got back online with it after which I tried to repair, and then reload Windows 8 and couldn't make it happen - kept getting error messages.
Summary: Attention si vous achetez cet article. Vous aurez le rouge qui n'a pas de port ethernet. En effet, la référence Amazon n'est pas la bonne : - BOXDC3217BY correspond à la réf intel DC3217BY soit le rouge sans port ethernet - BOXDC3217IYE correspond au noir avec le port ethernet Donc tant que le titre et la ref de l'article dans la description n'ont pas été changés passez votre chemin. Je ne doute pas qu'Amazon va rectifier rapidement. L'erreur est humaine.
