Reviewed 14 April 2014 by Dustin B.
(Verified Purchase)

Memory is listed as 8 GB @ 1600 mhz; It is actually 8 GB @1333 mhz When adding a dedicated video card, there were a few different wires that i had to cut ties on and route out of the way...

Great speed on the processor, top of the line for now
Slim build is great for smaller workstations
Memory isn't 1600 mhz as advertised
Slight lag when connecting 2 monitors, as machine isn't greatest at running both off of the internal video card
