Consumer review by:

Excellent business workstation

 

Excellent price point with XP Pro.

Not for home multimedia use, but would be fine as a second pc or for a child to do homework or surf the web.

Works fine.

Keep a record of the Windows COA because there is no Windows CD.

Don't get this machine if you are looking for a workhorse, trade up to a more powerful machine. For simple tasks it excells.

Nice, inexpensive box well suited for Point Of Sale applications. Running several at multiple customer sites with no negative feedback yet. This is not a gamer or a workhorse, but runs Point Of Sale application easily

Very loud when powering up. Could use a better power supply and a case cooling fan

Great Budget Workstation

 

Needs additional graphics and more memory for Vista Premium, haven't noticed any extra noise like some have said.

HT, decent amount of memory included, dual-layer DVD burner, quick to boot, Vista Capable

pretty noisy startup (common though), not Vista Premium capable

Would of been better if they had 1G of ram rather than 512M.

Bought 2 for my sisters for school. Still very happy with them after 2 months

Cheap, Works, but annoying

 

If you really need cheap and gigabit ethernet, this one works. Otherwise, buy soemthing else!
