23/02/2011 Graham H:
Are the pictures shown of this actual PC ? The reason I ask is that the front picture shows 5 front USB ports , and the rear shows 4 USB...and an HDMI port...BUT....'simon' says in his replies to peoples Q&A's that it has 3 USB and 4 USB, and no HDMI ! Please clarify as I'm really interested in purchasing.

simon: I apologise for any confusion that this may have caused. After looking into this further I have discovered that the description is incorrect.
