I've just finished setting up this computer, and so far, it seems to have several advantages over my older Windows 8.1 model. One is that its RAM can be upgraded a lot. I always upgrade the RAM to the max for any computer I get as a matter of course, and I'll be doing that with this one, too. More RAM lets it stay fast when running more than one app at once, or a single resource-intensive app or game. One of the reasons I always choose a tower model is that they are so much easier to upgrade (and when they get old, to fix) than the other designs.
I'm quite pleased that this tower-style computer includes a built-in CD/DVD drive. Too many of today's models don't have that essential item.
To my pleasant surprise, this machine has Wi-Fi pickup built in.
The appearance of the computer is fairly flat, and I actually had to look with a flashlight to find the power button. That button could be a little bigger, actually, but it's in line with the minimalistic overall style.
This bundle also comes with a monitor with HDMI connectivity. It was a bit tricky to find the buttons so I could turn it down from its eye-searing default brightness setting of 90, but I was able to do it quickly enough. The buttons are on the back, which gives it a smooth, thin frame on the front side. The wide screen will take some getting used to - I usually use a square one because that's what works best with vintage games.
A mouse and keyboard are included, too. Both of these are standard size, which is great. However, I use an oversized mouse to prevent hand cramping, so I'll stick with that one. I'm also sticking with my old keyboard until it breaks, because I'm used to it. It's always nice to have spare mice and keyboards, though, since they sometimes die without warning.
Setup was about as easy as any computer is. The HDMI spec is nicer, mainly because I don't have to screw the connector on like with the old kind. That eliminates a mild annoyance. It has lots of USB ports, so I didn't have to use them all just attaching the basics. Currently, it has integrated graphics. If you want to play newer games, you'll want to upgrade that.
