Good machine, for a home system. I have a feeling that these should be able to last awhile without any hardware problems.

That woudl actually be a four core processor. i7 doesn't even come in oct. Good machine, but for home users. More of an awesome media and gaming rig than for business use.

This computer is a beast. 8 core processor, 16GB RAM, 2TB hard drive. Excellent graphics card. My only issue that I have with this computer, is that the fan kicks on a lot and is very noisy. Going to look at the BIOS and see if I can turn it down.

Core i7-2600 3.4 GHz, 16GB RAM, 160GB SSD, Win7 64 bit. Paid about $1,800. Loads every program in about 1 second. Outlook maybe 5 seconds. Running multiple VMs for website development no sweat. I love it.
