This review unit, on loan to the channel from Lenovo, came equipped with an i5-6400 CPU (2.7 ghz), 8 gigs of RAM, a 120GB SSD, a 1TB traditional spinning drive, and a GTX960 GPU from Nvidia. The $988 price tag is about what it would cost to build yourself from components.

Performance is good and inline with what I’ve seen on comparably equipped PCs. A faster GPU and processor combination might be worth considering for better performance.

Note that this PC, as configured, has only one 16x PCIe slot so it’s not possible to configure it in an SLI configuration.
