It was better than advertised. I customized mine and bought it from the official CybertronPC website. It was a great deal for a great computer. I got an ASUS AM1I-A instead of the advertised motherboard, but that's likely because they ran out of stock. It's a better deal for me, though, because that motherboard is better. It came preinstalled with Ubuntu 14.04, so I just plugged it in and it immediately worked.My only complaint is with the parts itself, not with the company (CybertronPC). It is very hard to upgrade the computer. I have both RAM slots filled, so if I ever want to get more RAM, nope. (Max is 16GB) The motherboard supports only AM1 CPUs, not FM2, and the Athlon 5350 is the highest end one available and it's still not good enough to play many modern games. There are not enough PCI slots to put a good video card (Radeon R9 270 is the one I was going to put in). So it was mainly just an issue with the motherboard. Everything else was great and I definitely had a positive experience ordering from them!
