Great for the price


My customer had to have Win 7 Pro 32-bit. This PC fit the bill for them. Pretty quick machine for the price

A little pricier than 64-bit machines with the same specs

It Works!


I don't have any good or bad comments. It works as it said it would. Got what I asked for. Didn't think it came with a keyboard or mouse, but it did.

Consumer review by:

Deployed 50 of these


Not sure what the other guys issue is, I havn't purchased these from newegg but I don't like seeing them put down unnecessarily. I've deployed about 70 of these

Work well, good price point, digital and analog graphics

no hard drive expansion room
