  • CPU is not the best way to describe a desktop tower. EVERY gadget out there, Android phone , windows phone, laptops, desktops, tablets, all have a CPU inside them. The CPU is the same thing as the processor and all gadgets have them.

  • I can forgive the pricing but not the specs:
    64GB SSD, lame CPU, lame graphics render that thing unusable for me. Better make it a tad biggerer and give us moar powah =^.^=

    • I know this is an old post but just wanted to comment. If you’re using these specs for Windows, yes, they’re weak. However, this is Linux Mint. You only need 9GB for Mint, so 64GB is fine. You can always use external for more file storage. The Celeron CPU is preferred due to it’s low power consumption and no heat. It runs Linux beautifully! I have both Core i7 and Celeron Laptops. I prefer the Celeron by far for Linux. The included graphics are great for everyday computing and LIGHT gaming. This box is designed for every day computing, office work, etc. It is great for that and as a Media Center PC. I was never meant to be a gaming computer. I just wish it came in black or silver. I LOVE Linux Mint, but not mint green. I guess you could also attribute the green to power saving as this little guy sips power from the wall, but delivers great power to the desktop!

  • Looks good but why the pricing in Europe? The dollar is worth a lot less than the Euro and even less than the UK pound. So realistically this should be priced at around 180 Euro’s or around £150 UK. I’d buy one at that price but not the price point it is projected at :(

    • I think there could be multiple reasons for that.
      First, there is almost 20% VAT in most of European countries. Which could be less in US.
      Second, the main currency of international trade is USD. The exchange rates fluctuate. US is the main market which is highly competitive.
      Third, they are sheer lazy and greedy. They have just made a thumb rule to have exact numbers in USD and Euro. Saves them effort and they earn more of it :D
