Expert Review

There are some great components in this system which make it an excellent choice as either a general desktop computer or a gaming rig. This computer has an Intel i7 six-core processor for great speed, and you can upgrade to an eight-core CPU if you need even better performance. It has 12GB of DDR4 memory which you can upgrade to up to 32GB if you need to run some very memory-intensive software. One issue with this computer is that it only comes with a 256GB solid state drive which by itself is great, but there’s no mechanical hard drive for extra storage. You can add one, but doing so will increase the price of this model, though there is an option to swap the solid state drive for a 1TB or 2TB hard drive, which actually lowers the cost slightly. On the other hand, this computer has an NVIDIA GTX 745 video card with 4GB of DDR3 memory, a DVD burner, and support for Wireless-AC and Bluetooth 4.0, along with four USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports. You don’t get a ton of upgrade options for each component in this system but what is available should be more than enough for many computer users.Rating: 4.25/5
