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
Small foot print and good efficient PC for size
Small but powerful units. I've been buying this style Lenovo for over a year to replace old XP boxes in our plant. The newer ones don't come with as much annoying add on software that needed to be rem
Easy To Set Up
Only thing I could think of was that I would like to have had the option of an SSD, but it was not enough to lose an egg because it felt more like a personal preference
Sometimes they do not include the stand, sometimes they do. Never an issue for us, but something odd we have found
Newer models don't come with the VESA mounting bracket in the box. Must buy separately. My older units mount behind the monitors so they are completely hidden from the operator
Last Con: the price went up from last year

Not a con, just a cautionary tale. You should make recovery disk for Win 7 before doing much on the machine if you want that option. The factory supplied disk are Win 8. Instructions are in the packag
