It's OK


Decent Machine for the price.

It's true about the two hard drive partitions.

do NOT buy this machine


Unit is as advertised.

Ships with NO software! No OS install/recovery CDs, no drivers CDs, nothing! The HDD was partitioned into 2 ~34G slices.

Consumer review (

80 gig is really 40 gig useable


Bought this because my old XP machine crashed and did not want to make the jump to Vista. Since this machine came with XP pro pre-loaded, it seemed like a deal at only $299 plus tax. While it does what I basically want, connect to the net and play nice...

Price only for a really basic bare bones machine. Stable XP Pro OS

Only half of Hard drive space useable. Trial MS Word. Norton AV hard to remove.
