I got the cheaper one a month or so back and I like it. Lots of USB 3 ports, etc.
BTW, the activation # is likely on the botton of the unit. Not where the site says.
Also, my unit has a bit of “buzz” in the audio when moving the mouse, etc. Just a tiny bit annoying.
Downgraded to Windows 7 and all drivers were found on the site. Easy peasy.
