Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
One issue with this machine was expecting VGA port, in one description it had VGA and DVI (in the table), looking again another description it mentions DVI and HDMI, only having VGA cable was an issue.
Windows 8.1, would have preferred Windows 7, I probably should have requested that.

Neil, Amersham Bucks Business user

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Price for spec was ok.

Windows 8.1 not as bad as folk make out if you use desktop view and personalise it to look like classic windows. Was expecting to have to install Classic Shell from classicshell.net but not had to
Bad points:
PC comes with of load of pre installed rubbish you don't need and have to delete

keyboard and mouse very poor quality. I'm using and old Dell ones.

Very limited instructions with PC. If you don't know what your doing with setting up a PC you may struggle.

Had to switch to Thunderbird email to be able to keep my odl emails and contacts from XP and Outlook Express. Microsoft not providing backward compatibility stinks. Trying to use as few Microsoft products from now on, so its open office etc.

Default interface on windows 8.1 is the best advert for Apple ever! but desktop view ok.

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Cheap and works. But ask me again in three years and I'll tell you if it really was value for money
Bad points:
It was full of a load of subscription software for back ups and 24/7 helpline and I had to get rid of all that as it was irritating, reminded me of that f-ing paperclip on Microsoft word many years ago. Remember, "It looks like you are writing a letter, do you need help". NO I'm writing a shopping list, go away! So, as long as you know how to uninstall software its fine. Windows 8 itself isn't as bad as people make out though.

You’ll be able to stay closer to your digital world with the Windows 8 operating system installed on your PC. The Start screen features a tiled design, with tiles for your favourite apps which update in real-time so you can stay informed with the latest status update or news story. As you sign into your account to access your computer, your account can go wherever you go.

Windows 8 is designed to make the most of touchscreen, but can work just as well with a keyboard and mouse. As well as a number of pre-installed apps for your favourite content, there are many more available in the app store.

There are improvements coming to Windows 8 with the launch of the free 8.1 update. This update includes the re-introduction of the Start button, new tile sizes and adjustable four-way multitasking windows, as well as developments to the lock screen, search and much more.

AMD processing
The ATC105 has an AMD A10 processor at its heart, which makes it perfect for the family home. This is backed up by 6 GB of RAM which makes multitasking a breeze. If you find yourself requiring more memory, this PC can support up to 32 GB of RAM.

With a large 1 TB hard drive, you’ll be able to store all your favourite content, whether it’s films, music, photos or other files.

Bringing you better graphics
As well as providing speedy processing, the ATC-105 includes an NVIDIA GeForce GT graphics card which delivers fluid graphics, ideal when you’re watching your favourite DVD on the built-in DVD drive.

It’s simple to attach a monitor to the PC thanks to the DVI and HDMI connections, so you can choose the port supported by your monitor or even connect it to your TV.

Superb connectivity
You won’t run short of connections when you’re using the ATC-105. This PC includes four USB 2.0 ports, ideal for connecting all sorts of USB devices, from memory sticks and external hard drives to your smartphone and other mobile devices.
