I see no sign of one in the extended spec or in the pictures. Easy to add a USB one for about a tenner.

I am looking to upgrade my 4 year old system and would appreciate any views on the suitability and future proofing of this offer.

I do require some gaming capability.

No mention of it in the flyer, but it does say "....and much more."

Strong CPU, but a bit of a dead end upgrade wise. It doesn't say, but 4GB might well be the maximum amount of RAM it's motherboard can use. Bet it only has the two RAM slots, anyway.

The graphics card is discrete, so it can be swapped out (warranty invalidated, though?), but it's also very weak by today's standards. No good for Crysis, GTA4 etc. No mention of it's power supply unit, but it's unlikely to be that hot.

Good value for money package, imo, as long as you realise it's limitations.
