Ease of Use

Bought this as a PC to surf the web and read e-mail mainly, like the fact that it is small and has a wireless keyboard and mouse, easy to set up, no cords getting messed up. Connected it via HDMI to a 21" monitor, excellent graphics. Performance is what you would expect from an Atom processor, not for editing movies or running Photoshop, but very good for everyday use, very happy with this little PC.
