By all accounts I want to like this computer. I hung it in my bedroom so my wife and I can watch netflix or a DVD or even TV (bought an adaptor) in bed. I don't know if it is this computer or the software (windows 8) or a combination of both, but every software program I try to run seems to crash or not work at all. Google Chrome didn't work for the longest time. I installed and would click on the icon and nothing would happen. Finally, it started working (guessing there was a windows update). Now, the other day I tried to open it and I got an error message and it won't work again. The worst part is, when I substitute Microsoft internet explorer when chrome isn't working IE constantly crashes so I have to get out of bed, restart it and navigate back to whatever we were watching. How is it that a PC running a windows operating system can't run a windows internet explorer without crashing? Major pain in the you-know-what.
Another very annoying thing is this computer is constantly popping up dialog boxes for install Dell this, or update that. I have to get out of bed and manually close the dialog boxes so we can continue to watch what we were watching. What a major pain! Makes for a very aggravating TV experience when in bed. Obviously for the purposes I had in mind this is a very poor choice.
