2.5 out of 5 stars

  • Nice find among desktops

    ### Lets make one thing clear right off the bat. Gamers will not like this system, especially it's integrated graphics card, but basic home users will love it. You are a "basic home user" if you mainly use your system for web surfing, e-mailing, chatting..., word processing, listening to music, and watching movies.The great thing about this system is that it's highly customizable, which is good, because it's default specs of an Intel Celeron processor, a 40 gigabyte hard drive, and 256 megabytes of memory are low end. When buying a new computer, you don't want something that will be terribly outdated in a short amount of time. It's best to give yourself more than what you need now, because down the road, that wiggle room will come in handy when technology evolves further.I suggest maxing out to an Intel Pentium 4 processor with HT technology at 3.0 GHz. Also bump up to at least an 80 gigbyte hard drive, 160 gigbytes if you store a lot of stuff, and 1 gigabyte of memory is also recommended. Also make sure to get it so you have a DVD-ROM drive, so you can watch your movies while you use your system.I did that and kept it under $1,000 ... barely. On many other systems, those specs would have the price at least a couple hundred dollars more. Read more Less
