Awesome Computer! Great buy!

 

I bought this computer because I wanted to be a technological pioneer with quad-core processing. It was relatively a steal (I paid about $750 for it on clearance.) because it was on display. Never had any major problems with it. This computer won't be...

I got this computer for about $750 in May. Don't know why it goes for so much now. This computer has it all: quad-core processing, 3 Gigs of RAM, BD-ROM, 1 TB of hard drive space, and it works extremely well even with Vista

Comes with wireless keyboard and mouse. Keyboard works fine, but I replaced the mouse with a standard optical one. Could use a CD burner but they're relatively cheap. Other than that, this computer is perfect

Generous Storage

Amazing speed and power for the performance needed

 

I was skeptic to say the least purchasing a product that had not had enough out in the market to be thoroughly tested and (perhaps someone besides myself) reviewed and provided feedback. Coming from a 1.6 ghz Laptop to this machine is going from a...

So far is there anything that machine cannot do

I have been setting on the fence for some time waiting for somebody to come up with an HTPC that has a Blu-ray/HD DVD drive built in. I didn't want to buy separate HD DVD and Blu-ray players and I love the all-in-one convienence of an HTPC.
