Neat, compact unit, performs well.
Supplied with mouse and keyboard (lightweight but functional) which isn't mentioned in the specifications.
It comes with a lot of features already installed, which I didn't need, but it is easy enough to delete them if a little tedious.
The McAfee subscription is only for 60 days, but there are free antivirus packages which can be downloaded (AVG, Avast, Avira and others).
When first connected to the internet, Windows Update tries to download and install the software updates (over 100 for mine). If you want to upgrade (free) to Windows 8.1 you need to check that all the updates have been installed correctly before upgrading. This took several hours but eventually was successful.
When Windows 8.1 was loaded, Microsoft Office Starter 2010 disappeared, Google "office starter windows 8.1 upgrade" for solutions. Alternatively download Kingsoft Office free version for an Office clone.
I couldn't find Nero 10 Essentials either, but there are other ways to burn discs already loaded (Media Player and others), so not critical.
So all in all a very good desktop PC, any problems I've had have really been with Microsoft Windows, now all resolved.

Item arrived day earlier than expected, looks good, lot smaller than previous one. The only bad thing is that, and this is probably Microsoft's fault, there are numerous pop ups which really irritate, have to delete these things many times until you can get on with what you need to do
