Umm, my machine was the first to have been built for me since when i bought it, I was working in a gold mine near the Alaska Border. So, I was not insistant enough to make it nice and tidy. My experience is, its difficult for the cables if you dont get the 900 with the cable management feature. Other than that, it works the same as if the cables were hidden. But, im the kinda guy that says, they are a feature of the WHOLE system LoL
