Bad points:
The stand is poor. Not sufficiently flexible or high enough. I have to use a 5 inch stack to get the screen to a height which stops my wife who is under 5 feet from stooping when she is sat in front of it.

Tony, Warrington General user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This PC is perfectly capable of handling general activities - e-mail, web, Microsoft Office-type applications. It's fast enough, has big enough chips and the like inside and is good value.

It ships with USB keyboard and mouse, which I expected but don't recall seeing on the website when I ordered.
Bad points:
Despite the promise of 'Windows 8.1', it ships with Windows 8.0 installed. Yes, you can upgrade, and I have, but I felt the slogans to be a little misleading. And to be honest, Windows 8.0 deserves all the stick it has received and I don't think the 8.1 version is a huge improvement; it makes it useable for me, but that's about it. You might be better off asking for Windows 7 to be installed.

But that's about it for the bad points; the PC itself is fine. Sure, I'd like it to have a full set of card readers on the front (which is why it scores 9 on the design front) but it advertises what you're getting and gives you what it promises.
