Good PC

 

Reliable and relatively low priced basic PC. It's also fast, very quiet, has a large HD and and good amount of RAM. The boot up is also very fast compared to my previous ancient HP XP setup

Keyboard desgn totally unacceptable

 

Just purchased the Lenovo H430 and laid everything out to connect. The keyboard is totally unacceptable because the Fn key is in the location of the CTRL key. I will forever be pushing the Fn+C, Fn+V combinations which will get me nowhere. I could...

Unknown, didn't have it long enough

Poor support, keyboard design renders it useless
