Pros: It's cheap.
Cons: I've had this machine for just over a month now. The manufacture refers to this as a gaming PC. Out of the box i couldn't even play Team Fortress 2, an old game which ran fine on my old (8 years) PC (dual core, 256mb video card). I was running at 10 fps on this one out of the box (unplayable). I ended up buying a $200 video card to replace the one which came with this machine. If you plan to play any games made in the last decade, you'll need to do the same when you get this PC. Consider that in the pricing by adding in an additional $100-$200.
In addition to the above, the USB ports are pretty much unusable on the front and the ones on the back are about the same. I have to constantly wiggle my wireless keyboard connector to get it to work. Again, this works fine on my old Dell.
And lastly, the sound on the motherboard failed at just over a month in. This was going to be the final straw, but unfortunately, i'm just past the month return period.
I'll probably end up having to replace the motherboard. It looks as though i'm pretty much going to end up gutting this machine and rebuilding most of it. It's beginning to look like i just spent $500 for a PC case.
