Complete waste of money =/ For the price you'd pay for this, you might as well hire a teenager to cobble together a homebrew system made up of spare second-hand parts. That this was made by a "leading" manufacturer is a joke - especially for the price...

Lightweight case, easy to transport if you have to move house. That's about it. CD-RW works well in other machines.

Terrible heat distribution, requires extreme measures to simply get standard operation at Aussie temperatures. Collects dust like a cat lady gets furballs. Chip reader, built-in USB do not have standard Windows drivers (XP or Vista), and are useless if...

Consumer review (



For the money it's not a bad product so if you want a cheap but reasonable PC then this is probably good for you. However if you want a good quality PC or if you have more money to spend I recommend you get something better.

Cheap Not bad looking Fairly small for a desktop PC No floppy drive - card reader instead

DVD drive not the best quality Sometimes becomes loud Included mouse garbage Telephone support not so good - they try and get rid of you as quickly as possible by saying "and if that doesn't work call us back"
