I was noticing them, too, lol, but I take care of my stuff, and so while this thing may have its problems, it's also a fifth gen i7 with 8GB of RAM and an m.2 slot. So I can always reuse the drives if I drop any into it, and I'm open to considering options. Is it perfect? Well, considering it was used and the previous owner never cared much for it since it's not hers to worry about, no, not at all. But I got it for free, and already had two drives I could dump into it just to get it up and running. Anything I put in can be reused.
