You can either use wired keyboard and mouse, but to enjoy this awesome machine and get the best of it, use wireless keyboard and mouse. But sadly, it comes with wired keyboard and mouse.

Upgradation of Tiny is also very easy, you can open the flap and upgrade RAM and HDD.
We have edited a 4K video on Adobe Premiere Pro on this machine and it worked very fine, however when I try to add edit it on After Effects and added some basic effects, no issue here, but when I rendered it, it took hell lot of time, it was due to HDD, when I used SDD, performance increased.
I played some games like Hitman, Tomb Raider, and GTA V. Gameplay was fun on this device, however when you play games on the high setting then frame rate drops to around 17-20 fps, games were playable but you will notice frame drops.
But when it comes to office work, like MS Office and all, there was no issue, we have opened around 50 tabs on Chrome and switched between them and there was no issue as well.
So the overall performance of this machine is very good and it can deliver high quality work environment to you if you are going to use it in your office.
