ASUS Desktop PC CM6730-US002Q Intel Core i5 3330 (3.00 GHz) 8 GB DDR3 1 TB HDD Intel HD Graphics 2500 Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit

Pros: The HDD is partitioned into two drives. The C-drive is a little less than half. A pleasant surprise.

Cons: The labels on the keyboard are beige-on-brown. Difficult to read (for me). I replaced it with an old keyboard. No problem. It does not come with a Win7 system disk. This is the first time I have had this happen. You have to generate your own system recovery disk.

Other Thoughts: I was asked if there is space inside for additional hard-drives. There is a seal on the case that says the warranty is voided if the case is opened, so I have not yet opened the case. There is probably space. You could always add an SSD and tape it to the side. It's a big case. I am satisfied with the purchase.

Pros: I got it on sale, so it was cheap. That's good. I just finished transferring 140 gig of data with it. It was about 2 hrs and 40 minutes total. It seems that the transfer was successful. And I have the drive as a back-up. The drive did not fail.

Cons: The Setup program is very aggressive. I ran it once, figuring that I should. I did not install the back-up program. But then, every time I selected the drive from the MyComputer screen, the Setup program would start. I had to rename the program to stop this. This has not happened before to me. Then I looked around at the state of the computer after the Setup program. There were major changes. The most obvious was that my anti-virus program was shut down. There were others missing too. I decided to do a System Restore to an earlier Restore Point. That worked. This is only the second time I have done a System Restore.

Other Thoughts: While I was doing the System Restore, I was ready to rate this with 2-Eggs. But ignoring the problems with Setup and the Restore, I would have given it 4 or 5 Eggs. After the successful transfer, I decided to split the difference and go with 3-Eggs. I suggest you skip the Setup program.

Pros: Small and light. I can lift it with two fingers. It works. I really like getting rid of that heavy monitor. And I can also remember the old CRTs. This LED unit is a real advance.

Cons: Nothing. It does what I want.
