Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The set-up was very easy.
The keyboard is very good to use.
Bad points:
Windows 8.1 is new to me and more information could have been provided i.e. I didn't know how to auto-play DVDs but surfing the NET I found that I needed to purchase a CODEC, Windows Media Centre. at the price I paid for the KIRA this should have been provided.
