"Best purchase I've made in a long time...."4.5 starson by jeapp
Pros: Easy, easy set up
Small and compact
Simple hook up to TV
Cons: None that I can think of.
Summary: I bought this to replace an older desktop that pooped out on me. I've been without a desktop for almost 6 months, while I saved money to purchase a new one.
I was planning on waiting until after Christmas to buy. But, yesterday, lo and behold there was an ad in the Staples circular for this computer. I did some research and found out that this is a great computer at a great price.
I rushed to Staples (there was only 1 left in the area) and purchased it. The salesperson who helped me was awesome. He put together a bundle for me. The tower, keyboard, and mouse were on sale for $279.00. With an HDMI cable ($40), a wireless mouse & keyboard ($42), Microsoft Office & Student ($149 for 3 computer version), plus a bunch of miscellaneous stuff (like paper, calculator, etc) which would have totaled $550.00 + tax. I walked out of there paying $503.28 INCLUDING tax.
Came home, plugged in the power plug, plugged in the HDMI cable, screwed in the antenna (for wireless), turned it on, clicked a few things and I was done! I've never had it so easy.
Needless to say......I'm very, very happy with this purchase. I don't think I'll ever fill up the 1 terabyte of HD space. The 4 mb RAM keeps it running fast as does the 3.2 GHz Intel dual core processor. It's upgradeable to 8 mb RAM.
It also has a memory card reader, 9, yes 9 USB ports. So I can plug in and charge iPods, iTouchs, anything I want.
I'm not a computer tech or anything, just a stay-at-home mom who needed a new computer. I hope this review helps anyone who's thinking about purchasing this. You won't be disappointed!
