Windows 7 Pro X64 SP1

I'm confused as to the actual size of the unit. Acer says 10.57" tall, 3.94" wide, and 14.48" deep. (That's what I referred to, in a prior post.) Walmart, 13.8 X 7.6 X 13.6.

If the Acer numbers are correct, it won't use a standard ATX PSU. If it's a proprietary format, it may be difficult to upgrade.

for a normal graphics that usually need 300 watts so heres the 300 watch version - Athena Power AP-MFATX30 300W Mini ITX / Micro FLEX ATX / ATX12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply for many HP Slimline System Upgrades/Replacement - Power Supplies
