The video board supports two monitors, but there is no plug for the second one!

all-in-one design makes replacing, upgrading or re-using components difficult or impossible

It's actually more upgradable than I thought. The memory was easy to upgrade as well as puttling a larger 3.5" disk drive. I can actually see the CPU and it looks like I could go from the dual processor CPU to the X4 Quad processor CPU.
