    That spec is actually in a really good sweet spot. CPU, mobo and RAM you'll get a decade out of, if not more. Graphics card is good for 1440p, and easy enough to swap out. As said, 512gb would be better, but overall that's a nice rig.

    Yeah, ideally could do with more storage, even if it cost a little more, but not exactly bad for the money.

    Also doesn't seem to come with a stupidly high markup just because it's being built for you like some other systems have had lately too.

    The lack of storage would get pretty frustrating over the years, I'd rather see a larger SATA drive if there was no room in the budget for a fast&big drive. Nothing to stop the user adding a second SSD of course

    Well, the chassis lacks front USB-C, which is a bit of a downer in this day and age
    I've seen this complaint all over the internet with system reviews...can someone tell me why there's an obsession with USB-C on the front? Only device I have with USB-C is by mobile phone and I can easily charge that with the USB-A to C cables that generally get provided...or are folks using USC-C for other 'stuff'?

    I think because USB-C powers devices, can charge stuff, etc. that's why they want it, not for the connector itself, just what it can do. I'm in the same boat, I don't have any USB-C devices, but it is being pushed to be a universal standard so I can see why it's a must for reviewers, who have to take future proofing into account

    Would you not want to futureproof your system? It's only one port; there's plenty other USB on a machine anyway.
