Excellent Machine

Kevin B., Newegg
22 April 2011
  • Summary: Some idiot rated this computer 1 egg because he couldn't install a probably pirated copy of microsoft office. Ignore the idiot.
  • Pros: Small - Quiet - Powerful - Cheap A great deal for the price - unbelievable never crashed - never had any issues whatsoever with anything, owned for a little less than a year. It's a great HTPC
  • Cons: Graphics doesn't play starcraft 2 on medium settings. But that's because starcraft is a beast.

Pedro M., Newegg

  • Pros: Love the small size and how fast Windows 7 starts up. More than enough power for internet browsing, Office & Lightroom. The HDMI output is a great addition.
  • Cons: Keyboard and mouse are wired, but that's expected at this price point.

Sweet

Roger D., Newegg
4 September 2010
  • Summary: Despite my gripes I still have to give them 5 eggs for trouble-free and good value product. My customers are not gamers, btw, and don't need special graphics cards, etc.
  • Pros: I totally disagree with the complaints of the earlier reviewer. This is the 4th one of these I've purchased for customers in the last year. They get newer hw/sw each time in the same cabinet for about the same price, i.e. it just gets better. I have had no problems with any of them and I don't ge...
  • Cons: 1. Cheap plastic linkage between the dvd ejection button and the drive button. Takes a specific panel layout on the drive if you ever have to replace it, plus it has to be a vertical-capable tray. So far I haven't had to deal with this. Customer has to learn to press the button very hard to eject...

Nice package for the Price

Bruno V., Newegg
1 September 2010
  • Summary: New Intell Processors are the best out there right now! Would recomend to Friends and Family!

  • Cons: Limited space to upgrade.
