Bought for my Dad for mainly browsing the web...

Can replace Ram and add another HDD
Can play 1080p videos on YouTube
Smooth Windows 10 experience
Would be great for streaming Steam games
This is great for an HTPC. It has just enough power to breeze through 1080p mkvs (with MPC-HC), youtube, hulu, netflix, etc. The product is very easy to setup and build quality feels great
Only 16 gigs of available HDD space
Comes with only 2 gigs of ram
Only one ram slot
You may think the 2.5" SSD is optional but there was some Windows 10 upgrade available that required 11GB of space, and without the secondary drive available I wouldn't have even been able to fully up
