----Our Criteria for Selection----
We were looking to retire our 5 year old laptop that was hooked up to our main tv (lcd, 1080p). We wanted a laptop/desktop/tablet media solution that would be cost-effective but at the same time meet our needs (HDMI-capable, fast(er) cpu with enough memory to not hiccup the OS in general, wireless-N for smooth streaming, sub-$500, be able to handle any new requirements we hadn't thought of). We currently have 3 PC's at home and we really didn't want to spend a paycheck on a 4th so being cost-effective was a very big need.
We ruled out tablets right away since tablet technology was evolving so fast that we weren't sure if we'd still be using it 5 years down the road (let alone 9 months with a new release!). Laptops got a fair look and had a Dell laptop picked out until we saw this PC. We ended picking this PC because it had everything were looking for and then some. It was the ONLY one with a decently good chip (i3) in this price range (all other i3 chip machines were at least $100 more), wireless-N, HDMI, 1 TB SATA HDD, 6 Gb RAM, etc.
I hooked up the PC to our TV using HDMI. The quick setup guide sheet that came with the product showed that I should be able to. I turned the PC on and what happens? No video... So I grabbed one of our lcd monitors and that's when I find out, there's no DVI ports! A bit stunned since I've been used to seeing it on PC's for years now, I chalked it up to that's where we're headed I guess. As I'm thinking this, I notice a RGB port so I walk to my trove of wires and dig out a RGB male/male cable and hooked the monitor to the PC and viola.Read more ›
I looked at many systems most are 4 g memory this one has 6 and the others had 1/2 the hard drive that I got. The real selling point was the great wireless card and all of the usb ports. I had an old pc with4 ports but needed a usb hub but most of the time it didn't work I thing because of a power issue but I could be wrong.
Now once I got the pc I unpacked and followed the simple instructions to get it going. I hit a snag when I had forgotten my password to my router. I eventually ran cat 5 wire and now I was up and running.
setup was complete and with a few hiccups along the way and I was done. The computer is fast "I got the wireless working" and it was worth every penny. I could not have built a better one
One last thing about windows 8 most people don't like it but I do its just a little learning curve once you get that most of it come easy. Don't send back such a nice machine because you don't have the time to learn from it. You'll grow to like it and after 6 hours I like it
