It is awesome how fast I can do all my business operations, like estimating a job or running accounting.And plus saving desk space!it is so compact but powerful...

Bought this for my grandpa as a replacement for an older micro-PC. Pros would be of course small form factor, price-to-performance ratio, and it felt like a high quality product
We use these PC's for our general users. Great price, great PC, just all around awesome
