Good points:
This is a great looking machine which is very easy to set up it comes with everything necessary to get you up and running straight away.
All you require is a screen, a keyboard and mouse and your away.
It has built in wifi which is a bonus for the price.
Bad points:
I had to upgrade the memory within the first week of owning it.
I found it quite slow with multiple windows open to the point where it was unable to do anything?
It didn't play youtube videos very well or any of my own in VLC and was jerky and stuttered a lot in 720p, and 1080p was even worse.
Once i upgraded the memory to 4gb it improved quite a bit but i would suggest 8gb to be totally happy with this machines performance and I will definitely be upgrading the memory to 8gb.
It came with freedos but as mentioned in other reviews it is pointless.
It ran fine with Ubuntu 13.10 and windows 7 is also running well with a mixture of windows 8 drivers and 1 windows 7 driver.

Terence, North Petheton General user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It is a compact unit, for the price was good value. I loaded a full version of windows 8.1 using a plug in usb CD rom . I deleted the free dos partition and did a clean install of windows 8.1 full version.
Bad points:
From comments about this unit on obtaining drivers I went for a full version of windows 8.1 and this went smoothly I cant say weather its possible to easily install windows 7.

Phil, Doncaster Business user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Small, quiet, and fast enough for my needs
Bad points:
Drivers supplied only work with Win 8. My reason for buying was for an EPOS system that does not need Win 8. Drivers can be downloaded from the net but it lands you extra work to get the latest version of .net for example.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Quiet, good value, quick enough for simple home server
Bad points:
No operating system at all would be better than the Free-DOS supplied. Had to install another OS first to overwrite the bootloader before Ubuntu would install.
