Consumer review by: fturla (

Cheap basic pc now, 3+ yrs ago was tops!!!


This machine shows its age and limit as to expansion. It was built to compete with the top of the line and mid range computers 4 or 5 yrs ago. Now it is hard pressed to survive against basic new models. Recommend use for basic duties, legacy software...

Recommend buy for nongaming, docs,sheets,and web

Do not buy for gaming, video usage or multitasking beyond its limits
