    It's a gimmick. Get a computer with a standard ATX or Micro-ATX form factor so you can upgrade it later. In four years, something on that machine will be hopelessly obsolete.

    that computer is one of those hey look what we can build. the touchscreen is pretty bad. I played with one at bestbuy and it isn't very percise. Also it makes all the buttons 3 times the size so that you can touch them. It's cool to play with but the novilty would wear off in a week. For that price you might as well get a laptop that way you could take it to class for notetaking or surfing the web when you don't wanna listen(not recomnded)

    Thanks for the input. I guess I will stay away and just get a "standard" desktop. I have to admit that I am swayed by the gimmick-ness of it, but not one person seems to think it's worth it so I'll get something else
