Not being a computer builder, I wanted something that was 64 bit and that had a lot of available programs. I wanted to go Linux but programs are hard to find and I won't buy an Apple anything any more because they always abandon previous customers and I was burned over and over in the past with useless hardware and software.
I also wanted something with at least 16 GB of memory so it wouldn't be obsolete in the next 5 years and 3.0 Ghz or more. I looked at Dell which was too expensive. We could easily afford it but since we were only going to be keeping this purchase for a short time, I wasn't going to overpay. Then we looked at Lenovo but they did not have a dual monitor capability that I was looking for so we could be rendering video on one monitor while working on company work on the other.
The similar Gateway model that was around the $1,000 price range was a possibility but it had a cheap build look and our database engineer who is a computer genius said he gets people all the time at his consulting company who have Gateway computers that have just failed so he said under no circumstances buy a Gateway for company use.
The Lenovo was a fine computer, solid build, plenty of memory, Windows 7 but no dual monitor outlets. It was also a quad Intel processor that is great actually and in most tests faster than the 6-core AMD.

With all the power they put into this machine i am mystified why they would put a slow HD in such a screaming fast / powerful machine.
I strongly recomend buying this PC if you want to do pretty much anything for the average user.
TV tuner is the BOMB!!!! the TV remote it came with is good looking and EASY to use.
I've now had a couple of days to play with it. i really need a new harddrive as it is SLOW on start up, data transfer, loading big programs. 5200rpm is total waste. gonna use for linux later.
I highly recommend this desktop to people who play big game, big programing stuff, and much more.
My VGA monitor plug is also defective but i using DVI/HDMI anyway. this desktop has 6 different combos to hook up. so one fails got 5 more.
It has consumed a lot of time. He researched on line and tried everything from a hardware standpoint. He spent hours with HP on the phone. Their only conclusion was that it was a broken computer. Instead of sending him a new one, they sent him a box to return it. It is now January 10th and he hopes to hear something this week.
My issue is that it is their quality problem, why shouldn't we get a new computer? I am an Amazon fan and order constantly from them. But this has convinced me that going to Dell would have been a better decision.
