Summary: It's a low end machine, but that doesn't excuse ASUS for loading the wrong OS, providing poor customer support, and trying to SELL me a recovery disk.
Pros: You get what you pay for, so don't complain that it isn't a great machine. This is a basic computer for low end use. It's good enough for your office desk worker or someone that uses a computer for light surfing and emails.
Cons: As stated in other reviews I got two machines that were sold, boxed and tagged on the case as 7 Pro, and have Home Premium installed.
Summary: After having issues with a refurbished PC..I came back and found a new PC...the best deals are if you get a product new...and this PC was half price or better of that of a new in store..Having the OS I wanted with out having to pay extra for a downgrade....
Summary: would give it a 5 star but for some reson it likes to take the setting i gave it and go back to default ones. witch for me sucks cus this computer is for when im out at work..and my internet out there is limmited big time..when it reset the seting back to the default it turned on auto update again and use all my internet for that week.. other then that it works great..
Excerpt: Not A Bad Desktop. Connector For Monitor Not Very Well Supported. I Wish The Front Connectors, USB Etc. Were On The Bottom Of The Unit Because If You Have Cables Plugged In They Hang In Front Of DVD Drive But Not A Real Problem. For The Most Part I Like It. No Fax Modem Installed Even Though The Unit Has Win Fax And Scan. Biggest Issue I Have Is The OS.
Excerpt: My new desktop computer is as advertised, and works great. I'm still learning my way around Windows 7, but that isn't the computer's fault. I called customer service at Asus for assistance plugging in my peripherals and for getting Windows to open correctly. Both young men who helped me were courteous, friendly, and knew how to fix my problem. I highly recommend both B&H and Asus.
Summary: Get this computer if you need a solid business class computer. No frills but totally standard replaceable parts. Great price, ASUS quality. The case is very nice looking and not gaudy at all. Specs are perfect for office work.
