powerful enough for the majority of consumers - ample processing power, storage capacity and RAM
digital HDMI output for use with the latest monitors or HDTVs
onboard Nvidia graphics - better than onboard Intel options, easily capable of full high definition playback
9 USB 2.0 ports and front card reader. PCI-e 16X 2.0 port.
comes bundled with widescreen monitor
surprising agility for Low end price. Could have better range of upgrades but not bad for stock.
the fan overheats which causes the screen to go blank. then have to resart
Tight spacing inside to upgrade components.
comes bundled with lots of crapware
not powerful enough for power users or gamers
newly purchased and onboard ethernet doesn't work on power on. have to physically disconnect/reconnect cable to reset after power on. also, windows update (Vista Home Premium) identifies a newer driver, but keeps failing to install it
