I looked seriously at buying this very PC.  Lots of great features plus Costco support (which was the best feature of all).

In the end I opted to build one myself with quality components so that I could get exactly what I need (like 128 GB SSD, ultra fast HD for photos, etc) and not get anything I did not need (like 3TB HD, 16 GB RAM, WiFi, BlueTooth, Blue Ray, universal card reader, etc).

Some questions remain in my choice: Is 8 GB RAM enough?  Will on-chip 400 HD graphics suffice or do I need a separate graphics board?, But these are choices are easily amended if need be.  TTotal cost was less than the Costco (especially after you add in shipping and tax).

Either way you go, you'll have great performance.  Have fun.

Gerry
