Would this make for a good streaming computer (not gaming - streaming. As in a 2-PC setup)? I'm not well-versed in adding components - so the question is, would I easily be able to add a capture card to this machine. The rest of the specs would appear to show that its an excellent streaming computer. Someone talk me out of it before my bank account gives a huge whimper and sigh before ending itself.

Great streaming rig, overkill really.

This seems like it would be a good cheap computer for video editing since that relies less on gpu and more on cores and threads. But, considering the price the video doesn't seem bad. Tempted- the processor alone is still like $125.

My only question would be, how hard is it to swap for an ssd and add at least one drive to it?

I have this desktop. Basically, there are only 2 SATA data ports (1 for HDD and 1 for DVD) and you have only one option due to its proprietary parts. It's important to know that he HDD and DVD drive are powered from the motherboard (NOT the PSU) with only 1 SATA split power cable which provides full power to the HDD and low voltage to the DVD drive.

Because of this, the only option you have is to swap out the PSU, buy a 24-pin to 10-pin PSU adapter from Amazon for $12.99 because the Lenovo motherboard is a 10-pin, use a SATA power cable from your new PSU to power the 2nd HDD/SSD, and then use the SATA data cable to connect it to the motherboard (rendering your DVD drive useless. I was able to use a velcro strip to mount the SSD with no problems.

Yeah, sounds awfully complicated. I'm coming from a background of building my machines, so adding components has never been a past issue (outside of Velcro SSD along with the 3 other drives + burner). Humm, seems like it will be a no go for me.

I was going to keep this machine and I needed to move over some components like a bluray burner and at least 1 extra HD to a new machine.

Guess this one is just too limited. Old "iron sides" will have to do a while longer it seems.

I thought I read it only had 2 slots, if that's true You would expect 4x4 leaving no slots. perhaps the owner above knows the number of sticks...1 would be odd though.

Thanks. Bought it. Came to 399$ without tax. Pretty solid deal imo. Just looking at the parts itself and windows software, it'll cross 500$.
