DELL OptiPlex 469-3925 Desktop PC Intel Core i7 3770 (3.40GHz) 4GB DDR3 500GB HDD Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit

5 out of 5 eggs Decent workstation computer for price and specs 01/22/2014

This review is from: DELL OptiPlex 469-3925 Desktop PC Intel Core i7 3770 (3.40GHz) 4GB DDR3 500GB HDD Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit

Pros: A Display port to DVI adapter came in the box as well as an DVI to VGA adapter. The two I bought are licensed for Windows 7 pro and came with OEM Windows 7 pro media. Computer has 4 dimms inside and can support 32 gb of ram (The manual listed 32gb) should I ever need it. Saved money with buying the computers from Newegg. An available 5 1/4 bay to add an additional Optical drive or a media card reader.

Cons: It would have been nice if there was a description of what came inside the box. I bought two Display-port to DVI adapters along with the two computers and it turns out I didn't need them. I can find use for the adapters elsewhere so I have no plans on returning the adapters.

Other Thoughts: Bounced between this one and an Optiplex 3020. I ultimately decided on the 7010 since this particular one was on sale, had 2 USB 3.0 ports on the front an Ivy Bridge I7 and a dedicated video card.

I had enough with Dell's sales reps not quoting me the right items and the hassle of dealing with pre-configured systems. If they want to only deal with pre-configured unless you have a premier account then that's fine I will make sure I get the best deal and Newegg had the best deal for this system. I was able to buy everything I needed for my Windows 7 migration at work in one purchase. I ordered Sunday evening and I got the computers Wednesday.

Thermaltake Commander Series Commander MS-II Black SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

3 out of 5 eggs For the price not bad of an case 06/18/2013

This review is from: Thermaltake Commander Series Commander MS-II Black SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: The price. plenty of room for case fans. USB 3.0 on the front. Nice coating on the case. Room for several hard drives.

Cons: The same coating inside the case where the mainboard is mounted. Tried to screw in the motherboard mounting screw and I ended up having to use needle nose pliers to finish screwing them in. Pliers slipped and ended up pinching my finger and getting a blood blister. The case fan runs dim and slow (600 rpm).

Really not any room for Cable Management.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend using a case screw to strip off the coating for the main board screw holes. That way you would avoid a blood blister from the needle nose pliers pinching you. To use a 120 mm case fan you would need to use a standard case fan. The Antec True Quiet fans will not work in the front. They will work else where in the case.

Microsoft Office Home and Business 2013 Product Key Card - 1 PC

1 out of 5 eggs If you have office 2007 or 2010 I would say pass on this one. 06/18/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Office Home and Business 2013 Product Key Card - 1 PC

Pros: At least Microsoft listened on one thing and made the license transferable.

Cons: Simplistic graphics that look more like Office 1993 than Office 2013. Forced Skydrive integration, Live account, no media options, no downgrade rights to Office 2010 Home and Business. That the interface looks like the same ugly and annoying look and interface that Windows 8 has.

Other Thoughts: I can say not everyone is going to be jumping onboard with cloud services and I will never use any cloud service. I for one will be blocking all ports that Skydrive uses on the firewall side.

I wondered what happened to the Windows 7 was my idea mentality cause Microsoft didn't follow that mentality as of late.
