Great Office Workhorse 08/08/2013
6 GB of DDR3 (4 GB just doesn't cut it anymore for my taste when running Win. 7+, need the extra juice!).
Graphics has its own dedicated 2 GB of RAM.
5400rpm hard drive instead of a 7200rpm.
Preloaded with Win. 8, no option to order with 7.
touch pad....really really bad design, turns off when you plug an actual mouse in though.
Only 3 USB Ports
Got 4 of these to replace some near ancient workstations for an office. Have been up and running about a month.
Used for your typical office activities (email, docs, spreadsheets, accounting/bookkeeping software, etc...) with great results.
One is used for occasional graphic design work and has no problems performing that role (no video editing).
The 6GB of memory and dedicated graphics makes the whole package worthwhile despite the 5400rpm hard drive (Yes, I am a hardware snob).
Did I mention the horrid, nasty touch pad?
Overall they are working out wonderfully, and should last a while considering the work for which they are used.
