Great PC if you do not planing on upgrading. I am extremely disappointed...

Good, well built machine. Workstation ready
Easy to setup and maintain. Simple case that's easy to get into to work on
Have not had chance to use
Proprietary, you cannot upgrade the power supply meaning you cannot add ANYTHING extra to the tower except 2 more drives. It comes with a low wage power supply that you can only purchase from this com
None that I can find. Though an internal USB port would be nice
