Answer:
This is not an answer to the question, in this case a statement. First I was extremely interested in the comment and it was quite helpful. However, does the machine function with single boot to a Linux distribution of some flavor?

Answer:
There is plenty of space inside for Optical Drive and HDD. You may have to remove some screws and a cover for the Optical Drive but there appears to be plenty of space for both. I just added RAM memory so I did have the cover off and and got a good inside view.

I am not familiar with the Corel program, but I edit HD videos and have no problems with overheating since it's a desktop, not a laptop. I am very happy with this computer.

Amazon sent a replacement and after a few sessions this one also has trouble starting up. I don't know if the problem is the Windows 7 operating system or the machine itself.

Answer:
It supports up to 16 GB. There are 2 RAM slots. Each slot can take 8Gb. The PC comes with 4Gb. I personally added 4Gb to the other slot for a total of 8Gb and it works fine for what I do.

I knew the monitor was ok and speakers also. Everything was hooked up and working just fine. I was so happy I finally took the time to just get a new tower. You can always order one and hook it up, Amazon takes them back and so does HP. I had ordered one from Office Max that did not have enough power so called returns they sent a pick-up for it and I didn't have to pay postage. I ordered fromAmazon as my granddaughter said they were cheaper and they were, plus the one I sent back had windows 8 on it and this one has windows 7 which im familiar with. So go ahead and order one, ask them before if they'll take it back with no problems. Good luck. see less I can just say this, I knew that my computer was crashing almost every time I used it, I had 3 computer people out to check it and they all thought they did, but the next day it did the same.
