Good Budget Computer
on December 15, 2012
Pros: Affordably priced system with an acceptable balance of features. Good processing power, expandable memory, and expansion slots set this machine apart from lesser systems. Windows 8 comes pre-installed and the machine runs quietly.
Cons: I have only 2 features that I wish were available, and both have to do with the case rather than the hardware or performance. First - the case is designed to hold only 1 hard drive. Not a big deal, especially given the relatively inexpensive cost of large drives should you wish to replace the 500Gig drive with a larger one. Second - the case does not allow for a second ROM drive to be added. Again, this is not a huge deal as there are plenty of good external HD's and ROM drives available. This fact may be the reason such expandability was not included. These are VERY minor nits to pick in any case (no pun intended), and should in no way prevent you from purchasing this system!
I've seen others complain that they were unable to install an older OS on this machine due to EUFI security. Nonsense! This system is fully configurable to support legacy Windows or other operating systems. If you don't understand how to accomplish this, then leave it alone!
This is a good system and a good price when on sale. I can confidently recommend this system if you're looking for one in this price range.
