Dont plan on upgrading


Seems to work fine for normal everyday computing. No problems that I have been aware of yet with performance ; I rated this 3 star due to the missing power supply, and motherboard connectors(read 'cons' section)

Don't plan on installing a powerful graphics card ; This computer does NOT have a normal desktop computer power supply. Nor does the motherboard support plugging in a normal power supply to it. It has some weird laptop type power cord ; My son bought...

DOA, terrible Customer Service


Lenovo usually makes quality parts, but their customer support is terribly outrageous.

DOA, worst Support ever. Took them a week just to get in contact with me. Only replaced the Hard Drive, but The Motherboard was also damaged, now I'm going on week 3 and it still isn't fixed

Power Supply is built in which could be a problem to some

Lower HD than expected


All other aspects seem to comply with what the add stated, except the HD size. I changed my rating of the machine based on what the specs stated and what the initial description actually states.

fine machine, HD not as advertised

Ok, the add states 1TB HD capacity. So, I really didn't pay much attention to the specifications (my fault), I expected the capacity to be 1TB. The specs stated 500 GB HD; buyers be sure to read the specs completely. Otherwise you might be miss led
