Not good for upgrading
Pros: If you don't plan to upgrade and use this just for wordprocessing, surfing or even as a media server, this is a nice computer.
Cons: The power supply it comes with is only 300W. You cannot upgrade the power supply because the mother board is not a standard 20 or 24 pin ATX. You cannot even upgrade to a decent video card. Even tried something as cheap as a Radeon 6570HD and it consumed too much power. Horrible computer as far as trying to upgrade in the future. Lost $300 trying to use it as a gaming platform and upgrading to a high end video card.
Other Thoughts: Do not buy if you want a nice computer. Cheaper building it yourself. Case is worthless, motherboard is worthless, power supply is worthless. Wound up salvaging RAM, HardDrive, CPU out of it. The rest is junk.

Great machine, but not that great
Pros: The specs for this price are almost unbeatable. The i7 processor is as strong as you would think and the RAM is your usual DDR3, fast and powerful. Tons of HD space, but...
Cons: There is no HD drive, and while they make replacing your Hard Drive easy, there doesn't seem to be much room for a second one. While not a killer, it is frustrating that I'll have to open the case and really try to squeeze one in, when they obviously had a much more convenient idea at least in mind.
Other Thoughts: When it's on sale, the price makes this an unbeatable purchase. Otherwise, when you factor in buying an SSD or GPU separately, it's only as competitive as everything else.
