Updated review

 

It's a nice system. You would expect that they would skimp on the case here, but the case is very robust, sturdy powder coated steel. Not the thin flimsy sheet metal you would expect from a computer with these specs at this price.

This is an update to my previous review.< ; p>

Only 4 SATA ports on board

Don't even think about trying to put a high end graphics card in this machine without a PSU upgrade. This PSU is only 300 watts and does NOT have a 6 pin PCI-E connector (what many graphics cards require).

Processor: 5.9

No Vista DVD, Vista Premium does not make complete restorable backups of itself (why?). I used Acer's eRecovery Management utility (preinstalled, thanks Acer) to create the initial restorable backup. Did it twice on two different dvd types (2 DVDs...

Great Buy For The Price!!

 

Got a lot of great features. Lots of USB ports, 2 firewire ports (1 regular, and 1 mini) Got the multi card reader up front. The built in DVD writer is quick, and quiet. I ordered it with regular shipping, and got it in 3 days - pretty good going!!!

Low Price for having a Core Quad processer ; Very Fast ; Silent ; Quick to Configure ; Sturdy Case ; Lots of connections up front, and on top(but up front). That's much easier than having to reach back to the rear of the PC

No Vista Recovery CD - but that is more common now so I won't ding the rating for that
