Pros: Context: I require high quality technology for my job. I may not use advanced technical terminology in my reviews, but I speak from the perspective of someone who does a lot of heavy-duty data analysis and computing using remote software applications.

I bought *this* computer somewhat impulsively, very late at night, after I started a new data analysis project and immediately realized my laptop was totally incapable of handling my processing demands (not enough RAM and not a fast enough processor to make use of the virtual software I need).

So, please excuse me if some of these "pros" sound obvious; they include things I didn't notice in the ad when I bought the computer but were present surprises when it arrived. .

General: Easy set-up, no problems, everything worked out of the box. Prompt shipping and arrival.

1. *Great processing capabilities**
**A note on this in Con #1
I have tested it with the data analyses that crashed my laptop. They run extremely fast even using remote desktop applications. I expanded the analyses to include (needlessly) massively complex and lengthy computations and have yet to run into a problem or even a delay. I am impressed and very pleased.

2. It came with a keyboard and a mouse (wired)

3. It has pretty decent speakers

Cons: 1. It does not have a wireless card

This was not clear to me when I bought this. I probably wouldn't have bought it if I'd known but now I am glad I bought this computer anyways.

I was concerned when I realized the computer did not have a wireless card because my office is not near a wired connection.

I solved this problem by purchasing (for about $50) a Belkin AC Wi-Fi USB adapter and it soothed all my concerns. The computer is running like a charm now. I had no problems installing the wireless adapter and afterwards, I was able to quickly download and install several updates, programs, and software packages without problem. After that, I ran the analyses described in "Pros" in order to test the practical capabilities of the computer and all was fine.

Other Thoughts: I am very happy with this computer, although there were a few surprises involved. I would buy something similar again and recommend this product to friends and family who have similar computer needs.
