Summary: I know it's not intended to be a super computer. I love this thing right out of the box and kept it that way for a little bit. Eventually, I started tweaking it. I removed Win7 and converted it into a linux server. Later, I added some ram so it will work better with video game software. After that I setup the media server portion and the web server portion. Now I have the perfect place to play and work no matter where I am. I love it.
Summary: When I first installed the system and connected to the internet, I received nothing but pop-ups, even with the pop-up blocker on and security software installed. I called the software help on the Lenovo website and reached a person in India. After 4 hours on the phone with the software support, nothing was resolved and I lost Internet Explorer completely. when the technician was unable to access my computer, he just kept trying to sell me a support program.
Summary: Motherboard replaced first day, power button replaced the second day. No ethernet driver when shipped, WiFI would not work either, basically a paper weight. Tech's were great, but way too many visits, replaced with an HP that worked perfectly out of the box.

Summary: Pros- compact, well made, and has Windows 7! Cons- slightly noisy fan, no rear audio port There is no stand for desktop use, you have to buy that separately. But it does come with a mounting bracket for the back of a TV or under table mount.
