Pros:

See my previous review

Cons:

I forgot to mention that the instructions that came with the machine were far from adequate. The "quick setup" was almost a joke and the pictured computer was nothing near what my actual computer was in fact. Had I not had considerable computer experience this would have stopped me in my tracks. What did stop me was how to install the wireless mouse and keyboard. There were more than enough parts and vague instructions that I bypassed that and located a standard optical mouse and keyboard and let it go at that.

Other Thoughts:

Even with all this I am still only subtracting one egg. The machine is working perfectly, although I have not seriously put the machine to "work" at the tasks intended.

The computer comes with a 1.5 TB hard drive, which in my personal opinion is "excessive" My internet computers hard drive is about half that and I have not even come close to the limit. Frankly, I put much of my data on external hard drives and back up that to a DVD. This is how I work and see things and I realize there are diverse patterns of use which are all viable and proper.
