Great machine for the price!

 

I bought this for my daughter to use with her school work and any other normal activities a basic user might have and I must say, this is a great value for the money invested. I am an IT Director and deal with hundreds of computers, this is a good deal.

Powerful, Great value for the price, Nice design, Quality Display, Fast
