I got a good deal and I can but don't have the time and resources to do so

I got all of this including the touch monitor, 3 years of McAfee and Warranty for only $1,000 plus $20 for the extra 4GB of RAM since it was originally 8GB of RAM

How are you liking Mcafee?
I'm liking it quite well, No problems, great useful tools, configurable. It also has a HIPS (some will call it a BB) which works quite well. Its got a good firewall if you configure it if you're a expert user.
No slowdowns or anything which isn't a surprise for a high end system.

It quite better than the previous versions and its got a nice clean GUI.
