Great workstation PC


Not every one I have purchase is this exact model as sometimes I get them with no HDD or RAM

Added 4 Gigs of Crutial DDR3 10600 memory and a 306 Gig 7200 hard drive along with Windows home 7 premium and it took off. Small and powerful. Love it. Build it yourself and save on the bloatware.

Please pay attention to the product description. This is just the shell of a mini-tower. Even though the description states, "delivers phenomenal performance and compatibility for a full Microsoft Windows 7 experience" the product does not have Windows...

I bought this, assuming that the computer was ready to go-- with an Intel Atom processor, hard drive, RAM, etc. Guess what? This product us just an empty piece of plastic!!! You have to buy additional parts for the thing to work! Worse still, I can't...
