I've owned the E520 since 2007. was New. came with XP and 1 gb of Mem.
80 gb drive - dvd drive.
since then I've added vista then wiped the drive and Win 7 was released I added that.
it says 4 gb of memory max. I have 5 installed and it DOES recognize it.
I was informed it will take DDR2 or DDR3 mem. $20 - $25 on ebay
I've added 2 more drives a 250 and a 500. 250 is the Primary drive now.
I did have to replace the power supply at the end of 2012. tiger direct had a 300 watt for $25. I added a cd drve and a A:)drive - Floppy. it does see the floppy and properties says working correctly but I think Win 7 won't let me access it.
I changed the bios and still no luck. I removed the floppy.
I opted for a wireless modem using firewire.
I don't have too many issues with this machine, after all it's lasted pretty good for 6 years now.
next machine will be completely custom as I've grown out of a Proprietary system. I'll give this 4 stars over the years it's been an ok machine.

Good computer but it was missing the hard drive, and it was not cleaned, it was dusted inside and out. I will not buy a product from this vender.
