Does the job.


Shipped from a different depot, so was late being shipped (no rush processing). But arrived on time since alternate depot was actually closer to home.

Great little computer. Handles Windows 7 with no issues

Would not boot at first startup. Had to remove and re-seat memory to get to boot. Fan can get a little loud at times
