The Pros:Nice looking case, impressive enough for younger users. Very fast response, everything launches and runs quickly. Very quiet operation, only has a few small fants.
The Cons:Button to open the optical drive seems flimsy. HDMI will only work on TVs that use HDCP, older TVs won't work. Limited capacity for expansion, not much space for larger cards and power supply is minimal.
