Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Neat small & quiet
Bad points:
Had to contact PCworld twice to find out that my pc had been shipped with 38 updates required from Windows8 to allow it to operate. On the second occasion I had to reinstall windows software (about 4 hrs) to cure a problem which caused the pc to lock up.

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
much faster than my windows XP, but you need some computer buff to explain how it works. I have had mine about 4 weeks and i am only now beginning to understand it and a lot of my software from windows XP is not compatible for winows8 so I still have my old pc set up and running for lots of my craft c.ds.
Bad points:
Good points are definitely speed, i now no longer have to make a coffee an wait for kettle boilng while waiting on PC booting up.

K,

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
1) Great processing power and memory for the price
2) Good high-quality graphics
Bad points:
1) When using TV as a monitor, the picture often flips between different resolutions. One day you might get full-screen image, the next day you might get a wide band of black down the left side of the screen, with the rest of the image pushed off the edge of the TV.
2) Windows 8. This seems to be the equivalent of a car manufacturer bringing out a new model of car where they've decided to swap all of the pedals round and put the dashboard in the boot. I strongly recommend not buying a computer with Windows 8 on it.
