Still offers decent performance for the most basic tasks.

Chassis is plain and relatively compact--wouldn't look out of place or take up too much space in a home theater setup.

1 agrees

7.1-channel integrated audio--decent quality for a prebuilt machine.

Comes loaded up with a bunch of annoying bloatware.

Dated specs--DDR2 RAM, Pentium CPU.

1 agrees

High price point for what you get--much cheaper to build a low-power PC from scratch.

1 agrees

Very dated 10/100 Ethernet--Gigabit has been fairly standard for a while now.

1 agrees

Very limited number of USB 2.0 ports (6).
