"Beautiful Desktop"4.0 starson by stevegioia
Pros: quiet, stable, very small, simple
Cons: stripped down
Summary: I was worried about the BTX form factor this machine uses. Would it run hot? Will I miss having two optical drives? Will the video suck? I've had no problems at all. Wy girlfriend an I use this machine for web-surfing, light home office, and music. It fits our needs perfectly, not to mention it looks cooler than a Mac. Not appropriate for PC gamers, but you have to be an uber-geek to spend $2000 on a game PC when playstations only cost $150! Came with "free upgrade" 19" LCD monitor, good quality. Dell delivered exactly what I wanted: a well designed, simple desktop without breaking the bank. Prediction: in two years, all those ATX "tower of power" huge desktops will look like Hummers- big & ugly for no good reason.
