You get what you pay for


I have many computers, Dell, HP, ACER, ASUS, and a few franken-puters I built myself for business purposes. I bought this one mostly for my grandmother. She needed something small, something that would connect to the internet, open quickbooks, word,...

The unit is crammed with what I was looking for: 4 gb of memory is enough to handle a lot, except multi-tasking, which I don't do.
