          I use the computer for photo editing and so far I am pretty impressed. Of course I upgraded from a dinosaur, but the speed and ease is great. Windows 8 requires a lot of getting used to.

            Comments about ASUS CM6870-US014S Desktop Computer:

            This is such a competitively priced pc. I think it's due in part to having been released just prior to Intel's release of the new Haswell chips. I purchased this primarily for an inexpensive solution to video editing/rendering. I'm coming from Intel Core 2 Duo e6600 with 8 gigs of RAM and a random decent nVidia card. With editing, I could only edit with plug-ins at 1/4 resolution in Premiere on my old computer - now I just did a video with Fast Color Corrector/Sharpen and 10 video channels at full resolution! I went from a 3-5 hour rendering of a 3-4 minute video, to about 4-5 minutes in Premiere with Fast Color Corrector and Sharpen plug-ins on. Depending on how many effects I have I've had a 6-7 minute video with 10 video channels take 30-40 minutes to render. Also, I can barely hear it.I was worried about Windows 8, I had even used it in the store and didn't like it. BUT, that seems to be the case with many new things. I just sat down with it and messed around as I usually do and now I find that I work MUCH MUCH faster in Windows 8 than Windows 7. I LOVE the layout of the tiled start screen, plus practically all keyboards come with a "start" button on the bottom left between the Ctrl and Alt buttons. Super quick access to very visible tiles of everything I would ever want access to. Plus, just start typing what you're looking for and they show up. Type ms, and msconfig immediately appears. So easy. Nicely and intuitively useful customization abilities.My only concern is how good the quality of the components are because it's so inexpensive - I've had it over a month now and there are no issues, but you never know these days. When I get a chance I may open it up and see exactly what the components are, since the Asus website doesn't clearly state what's specifically inside. I don't have any complaints or negative things to say about this product so far. Well, the case definitely attracts dust - that's kind of annoying, but not such a big deal.

              Comments about ASUS CM6870-US014S Desktop Computer:

              Just getting started with converting from an old XP desktop. My biggest challenge is learning Windows 8 and how to navigate. I have a concern about voiding the warranty if I open the case to add another HD. B&H Customer Service says it can only be done by a 'qualified' repair facility. If so, how do I document this 'repair'? I bought this particular machine because it CAN be upgraded, i.e. open slots on the motherboard, etc. Time will tell if I remain satisfied with my purchase.
