Almost two years ago we were in need of a new computer and started to pay one off on a layby type company, when it was time for the computer to get delivered to us though, they didn't have it on hand and offered us this computer instead. After a quick bit of research we said yes and haven't regretted it at all.
What I really like about this computer is space and just how much it takes up, which isn't much at all. Look at your monitor... that's how much space my whole computer takes up, perhaps just a little fatter at the back, but at only 7 centimetres deep, that's not much of a difference. I love not having a bulky tower sitting there, taking up space, and as someone who loves to rearrange the furniture at least three times a year, this is a hell of a lot easier.
While on the subject of size and all-in-one, another thing that I love about this is the lack of wires, the only ones that I NEED to have plugged in are for my keyboard, mouse and the power cable. The cables plug into the bottom of the computer, at the back, so well out of sight. With four USB ports all up I don't need to keep pulling cables out all the time, makes life a lot easier, especially as I tend to loose cables often.
This comes with Windows 7, wireless internet capability and a webcam/microphone in-built, so again cutting out the need for a couple of wires.
The only issues that I have ever had with this computer was when it came to downloading programs off the internet. It took me months to figure out which settings to change so that things were allowed and could be downloaded, and even then it was just due to a random comment made by my mum and a lot of fiddling around, but that's the only issue that I have had with this computer.
This isn't good for gaming, but for everything else it's a great computer. It has a good processing speed, downloads quickly and I've had no issues with the general day to day use of this computer. I can leave it on sleep mode for a few nights in a row, use it during the day, and have no issues with it getting too hot or overheating, nor does it impact in my overall use of the computer.
I really like my all-in-one computer and when this one finally needs to go to the great hardware store in the sky I will be getting another all-in-one pc without a doubt.
