Chris, Barnstaple

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This is a tiny, very powerful machine that's a very capable home desktop machine. It'll handle web browsing, video playback and casual gaming without breaking a sweat. Very impressive, and there's very little
Bad points:
Not at all upgradeable beyond the built-in memory and SSD slots. Not expandable beyond USB and the built-in Mini PCI-e slot. Could do with an audio out at the back of the machine as well as on the front. Can't handle the latest games, but that's not really a downside!
