Great Value Except for RAM and HD
This review is from: DELL OptiPlex 755 Desktop PC Core 2 Duo 2.33GHz 2GB 80GB HDD Windows 7 Home Premium
Pros: Fast processor. Windows 7. Business class computer that will probably run forever.
Cons: Came with 32 bit Windows 7 which is less secure and less expandable (RAM) than 64 bit. The license works for 64 bit, but this means a reinstall with your own OEM media, if you have it. Only 2 GB RAM and this kind of RAM is relatively expensive. I consider 4 GB RAM the minimum necessary for Windows 7, so I always need to add RAM which increases the cost a lot. 80 GB HD is pretty well useless for all but the most casual user, so the HD needs upgrading in most cases also which will cost you time and money. They've been including a recovery partition on the disk lately, rather than actual physical recovery media. This is inferior because it is useless in the case of hard drive failure.
Other Thoughts: Core 2 duo processors are still fast enough for almost all non graphic intensive applications. This is not much more than a windows 7 license, if you were to purchase it separately.
