great little PC for surfing, movie watching and mild games

keyboard and mouse are throwaway junk. Seriously, why bother including them? I wish they left them out along with the wireless card and DVD drive and lowered the price a little more. If you are going to included a DVD drive, it should at least be a...

The PC was easy to set and so far does all I want of it

It was loaded with Windows 8, which I don't like and a large number of applications I am not interested in, most of them expect me to buy them.
