Questions before you order 08/18/2013
Don't know yet.
Incomplete information (see below)
There are questions you should be concerned about before you order this computer:
1) Is the W7 OS 32-bit or 64-bit? If it is 32-bit, can you easily change it to 64-bit?
2) A backlit keyboard is an option on this computer. Does this version have one?
3) Be aware that the 4 Gb memory comes in one stick. Dual channel computers work better with 2 sticks.
4) Can this computer make use of a SSD?
5) Did you know that you can order a HD "caddy" which will allow you to exchange the DVD drive for a 2nd hard disk?
6) Do OS recovery DVD and driver CD come with this computer?
It would be nice to know the answers to these questions before you order, and I should have realized that I didn't know the answers to them before I ordered! If you order directly from the manufacturer, you can specify these items in the order. I will report back and edit this post after I receive my computer and try to answer as many of these questions as I can.
