Great Machine with PCI slots + serial port
Pros: These are a really decent machine for the price. The really big plus for me is that they have 2 PCI slots needed for some legacy hardware. Come with Windows Professional on the M-series towers. They also have a serial port. They are a tower chassis and not a small form factor.
Cons: Harder and harder to find these in stock! They do have a different power supply connector, but I really don't find this to be a con. If you are looking for a gaming rig to toss a massive video card in, then look elsewhere.
Other Thoughts: I have bought 10 of these M78 towers and they have been great. Now I see that they are out of stock. Also have bought other M-series towers. Please keep the M78 towers or a similar M-series tower in stock at this price level. ($400-$500 range)

Seems decent, but odd power supply
Pros: Decent for what you pay for, as a workstation and playing some basic games its pretty good.
Cons: The power supply has a proprietary connection! I have never seen the power supply connection type. The main connection has 14 pins and then it uses 1 standard 4 pin connector. Be warned, it may be hard to find a power supply replacement! Especially a cheaper one that's not from the manufacture.
Other Thoughts: I would probably skip this computer for another with a normal power supply. I'm an IT guy myself, and the 2 most common things I replace are Hard drives and power supplies.
