Hard to even build for this price.

Some nice features including Adobe Photoshop Elements, Adobe Premiere Elements, Beats Audio, Bluetooth, Wireless Lan and 1 GB AMD HD 7570 video card with HDMI.

None left on-line, but lots in Regina, SK and perhaps elsewhere.

Whoa, take it easy... my computer is posting the times wrong, as well as my location and I can't seem to change it. I'm in Regina, not Toronto and I posted that last night, not at 6 in the morning. For example, this post says 2:31 pm and it's 8:30 in the morning. My clock on my desktop is correct. Any ideas why it's doing this?

Thanks op! Sitting on one left in box here in Red Deer. Only 100 off, but would be tough to build to same spec. Before I bite I could easily upgrade video card if a good deal comes up couldn't I? Looking at mainly htpc and moderate gaming. Quick reply would be appreciated as I sit on a box in futureshop :)

Warning chances are the power supply probably sucks and wouldn't be recommended for a powerful card.... just a heads up

The problem with all the ready-to-go/pre-built computers from HP, Dell, etc, is they amaze you with the processor (never unlocked), they put a huge amount (many times unnecessary) of memory (you've got no idea which brand and latency numbers), a usually big HDD (no brand specification), and then a low end of current generation graphic card (in some cases they charge a premium to upgrade to just a decent one). After all this - you've got a case with minimum air flow, a basic motherboard (just look at the back panel and you've got the idea) that you have no idea of brand and specs (what expansion it supports, etc), a power supply that usually is the bare minimum to support the installed components...maybe enough to support a minimum GPU upgrade. So in essence you pay a lot more than the stuff it's really worth. Of course - they have to make money somehow.
They make everything possible for you to NOT be able to upgrade...so you come back and buy another one. Of course you could still upgrade but you might need to change so many pieces...better build another one.

Better pick your own and for the same money or just a bit more you could get at least two times the quality/power of components - and for example at NCIX (for $50) or TigerDirect (not sure the price) they assembly and test it for you. Just pick it up, hook up the monitor and router/internet and you're good to go. With NCIX if you get their assembly they give you a year warranty for that (something not working - call them).

Anyway - my 2c.
