I'm not a fan of small cases
Promotes heat build-up and if you ever decide to try and upgrade it, you will have a hard time finding components to fit in the case
Being such a crowded space makes it harder to work on, also

Total agreement garmanma.

I see the small form factor machines on a regular basis self destructing from heat related failures.

Thanks for the info. Sorry about the missing link,not very comp literate, would the Pavilion P6213w-b be more spacious for cooling. Home comp, high school child, finances, browsing,etc. No gaming. If i knew how to add the link, i would. Thanks.

It is hard telling for sure. But just from the tower size I would say it should run cooler.
