It appears to do nothing.

No OS and I can't find a guide on getting Windows installed, what drivers and more.

Microsoft hasn't made this easy so for most, it's not a good deal.

You'd be better off starting from scratch and building your own. I agree with Bob Proffitt, I fail to see the charm of this unit.

No optical unit.
How did you plan on loading an OS?

Has one stick of ram.
That defeats the dual channel feature.

So......OS.....optical unit......ram.
Your looking at adding 200 bucks.

os will need to be added but you can use an spare usb stick for that(so no cd drive needed)


dual channel ram is not the end all be all of the build well in my pc is use 4x dual channel ram 8GB each.

this appears good for its price but some of the parts look to be cheaper on amazon. and some of the parts on amazon do go on sale for less then wholesale price(my grandad runs a computer shop and emailed me wholesale prices).

a computer is what you want it to be.

Revisit Newegg and check the "bare bones or white box" configuration. Basically a PC case with mtrbd, cpu and ram(maybe PSU) which is suppose to work together, they provide the matching components.

The other posters already provided the response you need for the build you supplied, makes sense the replies that is.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
