Score 7.0/10
Good points:
The spec for this machine at the present price offers great value for money. Ideal for people upgrading from an old XP system to Windows 8 if they use their old keyboard.
Bad points:
The supplied keyboard is next to useless as the letters and numbers are so faint they are barely legible.
The sticker on the front advertising upgrade free to Windows 8.1 is hard to completely remove without leaving residue.
I bought the package with the monitor and it was not mentioned that a VGA would have to be purchased separately for it to work.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Rapid booting. Some Windows 8 is more convenient.
Bad points:
I do not like the app entry screens, which are basically designed to get me to spend money. I would prefer entry to desktop.

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Simple to connect up.
Bad points:
Impossible to set up unless you are very knowledgeable about IT. The instructions are useless. I had to upgrade to Windows 8.1 - this should have been done at the factory.

Keyboard is not elder people friendly. the keys are not very easy to see. In spite of buying this i am looking for getting another keyboard.
I am very dissapointed as i find it difficult to type as the letters are very hard to see due to black letters on dark grey background.
