I got all the bells and whistles, and overall, it's a pretty good machine. With the right specs, if fast enough to play some games, and I never spent too much time waiting on this machine. When working on the machine, you can hear the fan whirring, but I don't think it's annoying enough to warrant any real complaints. The only problem, and the thing that forced me to ultimately return it, is that the colors over terribly over-saturated on this monitor. In other words, the reds are too red and the yellows are too yellow, and the whole thing severly impacts one's experience while using the product. No matter what I tried, I couldn't fix the color problem. Unfortunately, the Intel HD Control Panel doesn't let you change the desktop color saturation, so really, there's no way to fix it. If you do any kind of software/web development, graphic design or photography where colors are actually important, you'll really want to stay away from this product. However, if you don't care about color, then this is a pretty good buy.
