Windows 7 simplifies everyday tasks such as introducing improved taskbar previews, bigger icons and creative ways to personalise your desktop. It provides easy and quick access to your favourite pictures, songs, websites and documents through new jump lists. Finally the search function has been improved to allow you to easily find files on your PC or even web content.

Well that's just for starters; take a look at this line up of pre-loaded software:

I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened the packaging and found that most of the case is just blanked off.

No proper power supply, no internal disk mounts and zero expansion potential.

Basically, I think this is a laptop motherboard stuck into a desktop PC case.

The power supply is an external brick and all the external expansion slots are just stamped into the thin metal for show.

I felt pretty ripped off, but Amazon's refund policy is why I shop with them so much and I was able to exchange this empty box for a proper computer within three days.

Bought this desk top with the an open mind as there was no reviews,as the spec seemed fairly impressive. It was dispatched within 24hours as promised, thats the good point over. Having unpacked the item I discovered there was no optical mouse as advertised, therefore having to use up a USB port. The PC made an unbearable hummmm noise which resonated to a point that I did not even get past the point of registering the PC with my details. Within an hour of receiving this product I had it all packed back into the box and refunded.

Very Dissapointed and a complete waste of a day waiting for a delvery, for which I have to wait another day for them to collect.

Poor, poor, poor -

i3 Processor is very fast. The PC does have an external power supply, I see that as a positive, as replacement (if required) would be much simpler. Granted that there is not much scope for upgrading, however, how many people actually do upgradea PC that cost less than £400 ? Very few I guess and it does have 6 USB ports, which is quite generous. The 4 GB ram can also be uograded to 8GB, more that enough for Windows 7. I am delighted with this unit, which I have used for severalmonths now and if Amazon get any more, i will certainly buy another for the office.
