Pros: You can still get a factory built Windows 7 machine, which is better for me at this point in time as support for some of my printer drivers and work programs are still better on Windows 7.
I am also not keen on the Windows 10 snooping features (telemetry which you can turn off?), so I prefer to go Windows 7 at this point in time. This machine allows me to upgrade when needed.
The machine is small factor, quiet, the i5 processor is smooth and handles office apps well.
Cons: Had to upgrade GPU for better performance as the built in GPU uses memory from the system.
Minimal Lenovo clutter apps, but still some of them had to be removed for better performance.
Other Thoughts: Great little quiet machine for office work or entertainment PC. Recommended!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy modular design, great looks, solidly built, great onboard fans, very quiet.
Cons: The front panel is USB3 only so the internal expansion connector is 3.0 only and some motherboard that actually have 3.0 still don't seem to provide expansion slots. I bought this with ASUS M5 A97 mobo and apparently the front panel is not available.
This is not readily apparent so you/re stuck with waiting on a converter, in this case they at least provide one, which is this:
Looks really embarrasing when you're trying to complete a project on time.
Other Thoughts: Overall I am quite impressed for the price, nice quiet onboard fans, plenty of room, great modular design and awesome looks.
I am really irked at the cheapness of the manufacturer for not providing an easy way to install on mobos that you either want to put usb 2.0 on the front or don't have 3.0 available as expansion set.
