Much faster than my previous machine. Reliable, has yet to give me the Blue Screen of Death that was so common on my last computer. Pretty fast at browsing the net, able to run many programs at once, including browsers with multiple tabs open.
Occasionally seems to power itself down at random. This kind of crash is infrequent, but when it occurs, very inconvenient.
A good computer for the most part, and definitely worth the low price.
