Unbelievable Touch Screen All-in-one at this price! Only wire is the power cord!
on January 7, 2015
If you are looking for a sub-$500 desktop computer, this is it. I am completely amazed at what I got for the price. I was a little concerned about the pentium processor and onboard graphics, but it performs very well. My daughter uses it to stream Netflix shows all the time, and it does that fine with no stutter at all. She surfs the internet, streams pandora or spotify, works on office documents, switching back and forth and everything is crisp and responsive. We won't even attempt to play any sophisticated games on it -- anyone shopping in this price range should know better. I would think it would run Minecraft or more basic games, but I really haven't tried.
The touchscreen is really nice, and shouldn't even be available in this price range. I finally understand the Windows 8 start screen now that I have touchscreen -- it's awesome! You can use the mouse and keyboard, but sometimes it's just easier to reach up and touch something -- really cool. One of the best things is the lack of clutter. A total of one cable -- the power cord! Everything else is wireless -- keyboard and mouse, internet, awesome! I mentioned that my daughter streams music, so I want to mention that I don't think the built in speakers have very good sound. She doesn't mind, but to me the sound is very tinny. So, get an inexpensive bluetooth speaker (yes the computer has built in bluetooth!) if you want better sound. It definitely isn't terrible -- about what you would expect from a TV this size. Really only a problem if you want to listen to music very loud and you are picky about the sound quality.
Overall I would give this more than 5 stars if I could. I really can't believe what you get for the price. Good luck finding a touchscreen, dvd burner, wireless keyboard and mouse, and a pentium processor for anywhere near this price. I think the pentium processor is a big upgrade over the celerons that are in a lot of the computers in this price range. If you want to play games or do a lot of multitasking, you might want to pay a couple hundred dollars more for an i3 processor. But if you just want to surf, work in Office, stream music and movies, then this one is perfect. I might have to buy another one soon!
