ASUS Desktop PC Essentio CM6870-US-3AD Intel Core i7 3770 (3.40 GHz) 16 GB DDR3 2 TB HDD Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Cheaper than buying separate components to build your own: CPU ~$300, Motherboard ~$80, 16GB DDR3 SDRAM ~$75, Blu-ray ~$50, 2GB Hard Drive ~$100, Graphics Card ~$50, Windows 7 ~$100, Windows 8 Upgrade $15, Case ~$50, Card Reader ~$20, Keyboard and Mouse ~$20. TOTAL ~$860.

Cons: Power supply and graphics card.

Other Thoughts: I'd sell the power supply and the graphics card and buy better ones.

FYI - The product link takes you to the ASUS homepage. The complete specs can be found by searching for "CM6870" there.

Factory Recertified Pandigital Novel 7
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I own the Pandigital Star 7" tablet which has very similar specs. For the Newegg Shell Shocker price of $49.99 this is a decent tablet after you root it and install Android 2.3 or higher. The instructions for doing this can be easily found on YouTube and are relatively simple and straightforward if you follow them carefully. After rooting you can install Google Play and download the apps you want. Fast enough to play Netflix videos and makes a great remote control for ethernet enabled electronic devices such as A/V receivers and set top cable and satellite boxes. No wifi problems like some low end tablets.

Cons: Resistive touch screen is less sensitive than capacitive ones so you have to press harder to get it to work.

Other Thoughts: Don't forget to back up the pre-installed software so you can restore them if necessary. You have to download the root apps, Android 2.3 and Google Play on a PC, smart phone or tablet and copy them to a microSD flash card so they can be installed manually. You also need to install an internet browser- either the Pandigital one that you backed up or a different one that you've downloaded on another device.
