"Even though the PCs are fast and dependable, that really wasn't the decision-maker for us," Hoover explained. "I like that we don't have to worry about messing around with the tower or the cables under the desk. If you install a tower underneath cabinets, you have to drill holes and pull cables through. When we had to pull the PC out for maintenance, then it was a pain.
"Now, if there's a bad connection, we just fix it on top of the counter. No more crawling around," he added.
