Good points:
Extremely fast, and starts up in under 30 seconds. I am an Illustration & Design student and use this computer for Photoshop, Autodesk Mudbox, Maya, 3ds Max Design, ZBrush etc... all of which run perfectly. I am also a keen gamer and I am able to set brand new, graphically demanding games to max settings. I was also so pleased to find that the graphics card is in fact NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760, not 660 as advertised - very happy!
There is also lots of room to upgrade the PC, though at the moment, this is definitely not necessary, but an option for the future or anyone who is interested in PC building.
It is also an extremely quiet tower, you will hardly notice it! The wireless mouse and keyboard that come included in the box are also nice to use, and look great! It is definitely worth while putting up with Windows 8 to have this PC!
Very happy with this purchase, will see me through University and then some! Would recommend to anyone look for a powerful, stylish but more affordable PC.

None at all!

Good points:
Great spec machine. I was planning to build my own PC but the spec of this machine almost matched what I planned to build and worked out cheaper thanks to it being a refurbished model. I did add an SDD drive with ease - the case is really simple to open and the insides are very tidy.
Bad points:
The case isn't the prettiest - but perhaps that is just my taste but certainly not awful. The USB slots on the top are at an angle and can be a bit fiddly to get the USB cables into but again not terrible.

Matthew, Engineering student

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Reasonable performance computer (for my needs), otherwise it is a very good performance PC. Very easy to set-up, plenty of storage and RAM. The wireless mouse and keyboard is a nice extra, and a nice design.
Bad points:
Nothing too off putting however:
Windows 8 is not my preferred OS of choice, as windows 7 is perfect for me while I am using CAD, however it's not too much of a problem with the desktop on windows 8. It can however be picked u fairly easily and quickly.
The fans can sometimes be a little loud.
