As for storage:
These are awesome. Two drives that automatically mirror, low power consumption. It just appears as a single network drive that you work from, and everything it automatically replicated across the two drives by RAID. It's also always on, so you can use any device to read from it - tablet, phone, laptop, desktop etc.
As for your question - is it any good? The answer is: It's ok. It's got a lot of fancy phrases in the name, but at the end of the day it's a fairly low budget pre-built system, and it's AMD - which has slipped behind Intel (unfortunately).
Provided your not doing any video work then Matt is right about the video card, but the benefit of not using shared RAM is the real point. like I say ESPECIALLY if you are using Lightroom.
