4 out of 5 eggsAs advertised - A basic PC

Pros: First Celeron PC I have used since the 300a (remember that one? If you don't... Get off my lawn!) Adequately powered for basic tasks. This is a parent PC and is perfectly suited for the task.

Comes with a keyboard and mouse, though they are pretty cheap.

Cons: As already mentioned expect to uninstall a fair amount of bloatware. Not as bad as other machines I've set up and it was all easy to uninstall. I haven't seen any nagging popups as mentioned by the other reviewer though I uninstalled *everything* that wasn't required including the Dell "support" applications that Dell will tell you is required to get support from them. The only time I'll call Dell is if there is a hardware failure under warranty. Life is too short to spend time on the phone with them diagnosing a software problem.

Doesn't support dual monitors via the built-in VGA and HDMI connectors. Can accept a 1/2 height PCI-Express x16 card, though the small power supply limits your choices. You wouldn't do this for performance, just for dual-monitor support.

Other Thoughts: Build quality is OK. Reminds me of the Vostro line. Basic design with a flimsy plastic facade. You will also want to purchase a 16GB USB thumb drive to use to create the "restore disk". No using DVDs anymore (?). I suggest using the Windows restore disk utility since the Dell backup software doesn't seem to be able to detect USB flash drives.

Speaking of the restore disk, it will not be updated when you update the system to 8.1 so a subsequent restore will revert the system to 8.0 (with all the bloatware). This makes sense, but is unfortunate. If you have the technical chops and a spare older HDD you would be better served by removing the bloatware, updating to 8.1, then imaging the disk and putting that on a shelf.

3 out of 5 eggsBloated with bloatware

Pros: Price, works fine, good for the price

Cons: The bloatware is unreal! Bought this for my parents and had to actually have them load GoToMyPC so I could get in and spend some quality uninstall time.
The pop-ups and scareware involved is to the point of shameful! I've still go towkr to do because they are still getting pop-ups warning them of out date (it is all now u p to date) items etc. Really really bad

Other Thoughts: I couldn't go lower than 3 stars as this does work as advertised but no way am I going over that because of above
