Not much online support or drivers available. You would need to call their tech support for every issue. Best to stick with the better known brands.

I've never even HEARD of mirus....

Can you give us any more information about the computer, like the processor, amount of RAM, harddrive space, monitor (if it comes with it), price, etc?

EDIT: Nevermind about needing to know the processor.... it's clearly in the first post... my mistake.

Looks like your basic cheap computer. The chassis on some of them appear to in InWin cases so that implies that everything is non-proprietary, ATX standard equipment so upgrades and repairs should be doable by any computer shop.

The biggest worries are motherboard and PSU. You want to make sure the motherboard is decent model/brand and that the PSU is big enough to run the thing. Lots of cheap systems use crappy tin can power supplies that can handle the load of the equipment they ship with.
