"Ideal for gamers who want to stay competitive no matter where they play, the IdeaCentre Y710 Cube comes with a built-in carry handle for easy transport between gaming stations. Housed sleekly within a new, compact cube form factor, it features NVIDIA’s latest GeForce GTX graphics and 6th Gen Intel Core processors to handle today’s most resource-intensive releases."

The Y710 Cube offers NVIDIA GeForce graphics up to the GTX 1080, and up to a 6th-generation Core i7 processor. (Though a specific processor number was not mentioned, this is likely the non-K Core i7-6700 CPU given the 65W cooler specified below).

31L is not really SFF. You can fit a full ATX system in the same volume!

I actually like the look of this pre-built. About the only thing I would change is the lighting, not full-on hard-core RGB but have the option to flip a switch to something like a soft blue or soft green.

Now that a gaming system is on my radar for purchase in the next 6-12 months products like these are much more interesting to me. I always built my own systems, but maybe prebuilt is a better option this time around as time is now such a premium.

Forget the prebuilt, I want to get that case to play around with.
