good value

 

will keep watching, having confidence in the 3 year warranty, but it is hard to say how the drive will fit under the warranty. does all i need it to, nice size, has floppy disk, but no ide connectors, just fdd.

good value, 3 year warranty, boots up, win7pro key

hard drive hours 34000 - over 3 1/2 years. power on cycles less than 200, so the drive was powered up and spinning almost the whole time - not sure what that means for the life of it, but will keep watching

Great computer

 

Nice computer for the money. It may not be for every one but it serves my needs. Main reason for buying it was I needed a new computer and wasn't looking to spend a lot of money.

computer

 

This is very slow and comes up with a bunch of stuff instead of home page if it is shut off. Have to leave on. Feel that this is a second rate system.

Only worked a short time before failure!

 

I was very pleased when first received. Registration of Windows 7 went good with no problems. Update of Defender went fine. Processor usage percentage extremely low and looking good. Went to Windows update, started downloads. Came back about 2 hours...

FAN VERY LOUD
