Asus CM6730-UK021S


The tower is OK but should have had Windows 8.1 installed already as it has been out 6 months. Why can't you offer the Classic XP shell for the programme for those people who are not computer buffs and only want to do simple things like write emails...

Windows 8 and 8.1 are absolutely hell to use. It took over 2 hours to install 8.1. There is meant to be a new update for that which would not install and then Windows said they had taken it off for the time being because there's a fault so it is still...

Value for money for Intel icore. Fast and good speed

The keyboard marking are faint. It can be difficult for people with eye sight problem. However, this can be easily remedied by using different keyboard

Asus Essentio CM6730-UK020S


Much faster than my previous computer

Black keyboard with grey lettering needs a desk lamp (more wires!) ; Why can't tower computers have integral speakers like laptops. need external speakers (even more wires!!!)

Asus CM6730-UK021S


Easy to use for someone who's less than an expert ; Lightning fast compared to XP

Would have been nice to have speakers included, I would have gladly paid an extra £20 at the time of purchase rather than buying as an after thought

Not happy with Windows 8 if I could have brought with Window 7 I would have done so also the keyboard keys are hard to read due to the colour

Asus Essentio CM6730-UK020S


It worked in spite of windows 8 much better with 8.1

Win 8 ; Customer Services told Me I had to buy Win 8.1 when I requested a restore disk because I wished to replace the HDD for a lager one ; Do not have this problem with Novatec
