HP DX2400 [Microsoft Authorized Recertified] Desktop Tower with Intel Pentium Dual Core E2220 2.40 Ghz, 2GB RAM, 80GB HDD, DVDROM, Windows 7 Home 32 Bit

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Not a machine I'd buy for myself, but as light duty machine for mother in law, should be more than adequate for her uses.

Arrived well packaged and clean, inside and out, no bloatware, and with a fresh install of Win 7-- had to enter the product code, activate etc; be prepared for nearly 200 Windows updates!

Cons: No surprise: small hard drive, 32 bit OS, 2 gigs of memory.

Having only a VGA monitor port was a surprise, though admittedly my fault for failing to notice. Fortunately, I had spare vid card in my used parts bin, which brought the Windows Experience Index from 3.3 to 5.1.

Other Thoughts: Even for light duty I would recommend a low end vid card, but be aware the power supply is only 300 watts.

I'd also recommend an external back up. For one thing, the machine is old enough it originally shipped with Vista, so no telling how many times the hard drive has been around the barn. My personal choice, after doing the updates and installing needed software, was cloning it to a spare drive.

Pros: Purchassed in Feb for a budget build, a workhorse, not a racehorse.

Easy install, no problems as yet, and it's quiet. Brought AMD tricore apu Windows Exp Index from 4.3 to 5.7.

This was my first Zotac product and so far I'm quite happy with it.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I'm not a gamer, solitaire is the most I play, so no opinion how it would perform in that regard.

Logitech Wireless Mouse M310 (910-001675) Silver 3 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB RF Wireless Laser Mouse

Pros: Got as a refurb in mid November & quite happy with it. Battery life seems good. First battery lasted approx 7 weeks--pretty good considering it was a 5 year old rechargeable that had been sitting for a while, and I'm a heavy user.

Nano receiver fits nicely in the battery bay for transport. Also like the on/off switch though I deliberately didn't use it as a test how long the old battery would last.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Not a gamers mouse, but excellent as a workhorse mouse.
