Summary: I bought this PC to be used in my kitchen with my TV. It does an excellent job. The mouse/keyboard that it came with it is quite good. If you are going to use this PC for entertainment mostly I can say it does a phenomenal job.
Not Just For Entertainment - Makes a Great Work Computer

Summary: I bought this to use for an IP based surveillance system. Since most people seem to be using mini computers for TV streaming I was skeptical about using it for anything else - a desktop replacement for example. Pros: It works better than an older tower system I have with Windows 7 for my purpose. I see no reason it why it would not make an excellent computer for everyday use.
Summary: Bought this specifically for Slingbox streaming but video was very choppy at 1080p and even at the lowest setting. CPU would max out at 100%, even tried a fresh install of Windows 7 as well as Windows 8 but CPU usage was still topping out. Had no issues with playback on 1080p MKV files but for my purpose it didn't get the job done.
Summary: This is a great machine and I recommend it. I would purchase directly from Lenovo as this one is way more expensive than: [...] There are three models, and the one listed here is the middle-ground one which is listed at $335.20.
