Shopping For An Internet PC--Part 3 of 3
Many of the new Internet PCs come with a very small system unit--much smaller than a standard PC's. While these small-footprint PCs are great for saving space on the top of your desk, they aren't so easy to upgrade. You'll find few (if any) card expansion slots. And most offer no expansion bays for extra internal hard drives, optical storage drives, or removable storage drives.

Before you buy a Web-ready PC, ask a salesperson about its upgrade path. If there isn't one, you might want to consider a traditional PC instead.
