Well, since it's "famous maker," let's see how its CPU and GPU stack up against the competition.

CPU Performance
GPU Performance

If you want to get a bit more specific, here are some customer reviews. I'm reasonably sure that this is a very slight variant of the Walmart Black Friday. Let's leave the "Famous Maker" unnamed.

Perhaps the Brand has abandoned it because they are ashamed of the lowly AMD Fusion E1-1200 processor.

'Sorry Woot, but I'd rather put $205 into an off lease Dell Optiplex (corporate grade) PC vs. this refurb.

And the Dell would come with Windows 7 Professional.

Yeah this is literally a aptop in a box. Or if you want to look on the bright side, a decent low power NAS for your home...

"Power: External 65W Max"

Not a real computer. Wat

To be fair, some of us prefer the comfort of use a desktop provides to the portability of a laptop.

What they are saying is if you're going to get a desktop, why not get better performance, which is what most desktops offer?

Same package, lower price. I just bought one yesterday to be used as a NAS and double as a remote Quickbooks server (very limited Quickbooks use). I'm hoping it's got enough in it to run QB tolerably. If not, it'll still function as an extra network rig for about double the price of Windows alone. Heck you could part it out and make up quite a bit of your cost if it's that big of a deal.

As for needing more power in a desktop I have two viewpoints:
1. This is a good computer for a young child or grandma. It was not made with performance in mind.
2. It appealed to me because it is going to sit idle a lot. More computing power = more power consumption. I have an old gaming rig sitting unused but there's no way I'd hook a power hungry pc up for the use I'm looking for.

About two weeks ago, I bought one very similar to the setup Tekmitch mentions.

If you are considering either rig, it might be worth your time to brush up on the differences between "base" Windows 8 and Pro. Some of the features I wanted are only available in Pro.
