For this price, this a great for normal light computer uses, like surfing the web, watching a DVD, answering email, playing a low-end video game. If that is all you ever want to do, then the price should convince you to buy this. But what really impresses me is that (compared to my older computer) this can also do the more sophisticated items much faster. Rendering a video, expanding a zip file, dealing with several tasks at the same time, playing a higher end video game. I am rather impressed by the ability of this computer to do what you would expect in a computer twice as much.
Just on a side note, I deleted all those "trial" programs. I had bought Office Home and Student for another computer and it allows 3 installations, so I just used that. I downloaded AVAST, which is a free virus protection program with great ability. I loaded Firefox instead of using Internet Explorer (IE just doesn't have enough features and is too buggy) and Thunderbird as a replacement for Outlook. I also use TeamViewer to connect all my computers instead of PCAnywhere, PCtoGo, or Windows RDP. All those programs are free (CNet), work on Windows 7, and run much faster and bug free.
windows 7 after a short while will prove wonderfully easy to navigate. the thing is, windows 7 is huge. the first thing you do once you get the computer up-and-runnin is create your recovery discs. it will take four dvds: three for the recovery and one for the drivers. then go about deleting the programs you dont need. i always get rid of trial software and i delete norton in favor of kaspersky (unless you can afford a nod program, or mcafee).
this comp is very easy to set up and use and the processor is insanely quick. this isnt a gaming computer, but it is fast and has a lot of drive data, plus the usbs are 2.0. plus, though it reads on the box that the hard drive is a 750g, it is really a terabyte hard drive (odd but very cool), and the processor is not only an intel pentium but is also a dual core. this comp is insane for the price. i picked one up for my mother in law and went to setting it up. liked it so much that i went out and got one for our house.
found it at best buy for $350. that is a steal. im so much happier with it over my old emachines, w3650. this is a much better product, a luck find. get it while you can.
