We decided to buy this computer because we waited for a while for a computer we wanted to get directly from the Dell site, but took over a month and we never received it. This equipment turned out nicer than the one we wanted at the Dell Site, with the same 500GB of memory and most of the same features....Even better, its an all-in-one that is perfect for the small size desk we have for our assistant. Also has the touchscreen which really was something we were not expecting... we are very pleased with this machine and really recommend it for the price and features its a steal...

I'm a Mac user and despite most people thinking Macs are expensive, the fact is that when a PC is equipped with similar capabilities (processor, monitor/screen, application or OS capability) the pricing works out to be similar. That said and with a big Mac bias I have to say this must be one of the best deals on a PC. I ordered this machine for our office with overnight delivery and set it up in our office in 15 minutes. The machine itself is unbelievably light; I thought we were shipped an empty monitor! It's a pretty fast processor, it's nice wireless is included since HP and others manage to leave this out these days, it has plenty of hard drive on board (1/2 a Terabyte), and the monitor is perfectly fine although it's a 16:9 aspect ratio. It's nice this is an all in one and the computer/monitor can be mounted on a wall which we will do. It's also nice to have a wireless keyboard and mouse for less wire clutter. To top it all of the screen is also a touch screen which for some business applications we have is quite handy. It's also much appreciated that Dell chose to not litter the machine with endless 3rd party trial applications and opt out messages as HP continues to do. With an office full of people and lots of PC's, all of the pop ups from Norton and whatever other apps became a nuisance and confused less PC savvy workers and took time to de-install. Thanks Dell and Amazon for a solid offering.
