4 out of 5 eggsAdditional Info

Pros: See my previous review

Cons: I forgot to mention that the instructions that came with the machine were far from adequate. The "quick setup" was almost a joke and the pictured computer was nothing near what my actual computer was in fact. Had I not had considerable computer experience this would have stopped me in my tracks. What did stop me was how to install the wireless mouse and keyboard. There were more than enough parts and vague instructions that I bypassed that and located a standard optical mouse and keyboard and let it go at that.

Other Thoughts: Even with all this I am still only subtracting one egg. The machine is working perfectly, although I have not seriously put the machine to "work" at the tasks intended.

The computer comes with a 1.5 TB hard drive, which in my personal opinion is "excessive" My internet computers hard drive is about half that and I have not even come close to the limit. Frankly, I put much of my data on external hard drives and back up that to a DVD. This is how I work and see things and I realize there are diverse patterns of use which are all viable and proper.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent For The Purpose

Pros: This computer is built by a decent company and has many good qualities. It has adequate USB 2.0 slots (which I use) and also two USB 3.0 slots for future use.

The video card is good and should be more than adequate for the intended job. The sound quality, even with on-board sound is more than acceptable ! The computer does not come with a recovery CD, rather the process of doing that is in the hard drive itself on a different partition. I don't know if doing it this way is a good or a bad thing.

So far I have encountered no problems using the computer and I see for it enjoyable use.

Cons: The 5400 rpm hard drive is slower than the one in my other computer. The Windows Experience Index is only 5.9 and my other computer, with an I7 870 processor, is rated at 3.7 but the disk transfer rate is the main factor for the 5.9 score. My older computer gets the 3.7 due to the aero score. This computer seems to be a hair slow but that has not much bearing on what this computer will be doing. All this has cost one egg!

Other Thoughts: I bought this computer for a very specific purpose and that is to do digital work and music. Also the computer will not be seeing the internet, as it will be a "stand alone" machine.

If you are planning on this computer to do serious gaming - I'd look elsewhere on the account of the 5400 hard drive, even tho the computer boasts of an i7 2600 processor but I think most gamers know what they want and need.
