3 out of 5 eggsNice System - But

Pros: Expandable (bays and memory), fast, quiet, cool running.

Cons: No MS Office and now I have to buy it. The LAN connection goes offline and does not wake-up with the system and a reboot was needed (I believe this is resolved).

Other Thoughts: This system does NOT have MS Office installed and I'm unable to transfer from my old computer to this Think Station E31. Newegg said to contact MS Support about transferring the license, but that is like doing your own dental work. Also the pictures on Newegg's site, the back of the computer is different than what I received. The Newegg pictures included a second video card and when I read that this handles duel monitors I thought it came with the card. That is NOT the case, you use the display-port for the second monitor, that no one on planet Earth has been able to get a good stead quality image out of yet (I have not tried yet). Also the first computer was miss-shipped to some place in Texas and Newegg wanted me to wait until that one was returned to send it on to me. Very little yelling got Newegg to overnight a second system out before receiving the miss-shipped one back. I'm happy with the computer, but not happy that it will cost loads of money for MS Office and a second video card, just to get what I thought I was buying. I was only planning on buying more memory. I was happy that Newegg acknowledged the miss-shipping and sent a replacement as fast as they could and I only waited four extra days (over the weekend) for the computer.
