Summary: This is a great little machine. It has done everything that I have asked of it. It is small enough to hide most anywhere.
Pros: Computer is tiny, has all the ports needed and is a great HTPC. Installed Ubuntu, Kodi and Plex. Computer is connected to my NAS for movie/music streaming. Computer is very quiet.
Cons: Hard drive is a pain to replace. Installing Ubuntu was not a straight forward process. Not Ubuntu's fault. I place the blame squarely in MS's lap for their BIOS requirements. No IR receiver. Only a wimpy Celeron, but good enough for a HTPC. Comes with 1 stick of 4GB RAM. System seems to work best...
Not the smoothest operating small computer I've tried but I'm working to upgrade parts.

Summary: I have this Pc now for approx. 1 month. It was an easy hook up to my led living room pc. System came with Windows 8, which I immedtiately upgraded to 8.1. I installed Kodi to be able to watch movies from my NAS. My son also enjoys it to play Minecraft.
Summary: Pros: Great size for a HTPC device. It will fit just about anywhere easily. Its quiet - I can't hear it running. Supports 1080 output no problem. Cons: Windows 8. It stinks. Also, and this was worth me subracting 2 stars, the PC ships with RealTek audio which did not support audio through HDMI to my...
