My all-in price with RAM upgrades from Ebay including a 64GB Samsung 830 mSATA was $705 which is about 1/2 of HP's price. Out of the box it's a decent performer with only 4GB of RAM and the 7200 rpm Hitachi hdd but after installing the Win7 Pro OS on the 64GB mSATA and relocated all of My *Folders to the new drive E: WD300GB Velociraptor then ramming it with 16GB it's more than capable. This machine's most redeeming quality is the Ultra Small Desktop form factor. It is small, quietly sophisticated and an absolute screamer.
I'm a photographer and time processing photos has always been the bane of my profession. To build a dragon-slayer specced rig for attaining the image quality and speed I'm after would require me to replace a two drawer filing cabinet with the new TOWER of POWER and put up with the constant drone of the cooling fans. Because this isn't an option then pumping silicon steroids into a tiny box is the only solution.
