Excerpt: I bought my current hard drive from Staples about 4 years ago, and I know that drives have an estimated life of about five years. Since I use Win7, and I knew that Win7 will be very hard to find, I decided that I needed to be looking for a new hard drive during the holidays. When I saw this Dell desktop, with the 1 TB capacity and loaded with Win7 in my Staples flier, I decided that this system would be an excellent replacement.
Excerpt: The CPU came with windows 7 and not windows 8. This is what we were looking for at the time of purchase. It is pretty fast and has the capability of expansion. We were able to add an extra hard drive as well. The only thing that could make it better is if the built-in sound card didn't require you to have amplified speakers. Just hooking speakers to the CPU and having them turned all the way up didn't produce loud enough sound.
Excerpt: Let me state right up front that I absolutely hate Windows 8. That said, this computer with Windows 7 is a fairly seamless transition from Vista. It performs well but it is stripped down; having nothing more than an operating system and the few accessories that come with it. I got a really good deal on this computer so having to purchase some additional software (Office, etc.) for it won't be a huge additional expense.
Excerpt: This replacement desktop is mostly a blessing. The new computer operates much, much faster than the old slowpoke. The transition has mostly been easy. I'm a bit distressed about the fact that this one isn't compatible with a good bit of my old tried-and-true software. Also I don't like the keyboard as well as the old one, and the old one can't be installed on the new computer. Well, at least the old mouse still works.
Excerpt: This computer is a good PC. It is reliable and feeling fast enough for everyday family use. When need to check e-mail, read everyday news, and enjoy to see some web page movies. using this computer give you excellent performance. Some of this computer points that may need to improve is, it only has one DVD/CD drive. If it had two DVD/CD drives it can convenient to be used directly copy one DVD to another DVD.
Excerpt: I have been using this desktop over two weeks and it runs awesome. Windows 7 is far better than windows 8.1 and I really enjoyed working on this computer. It has HDMI too. Strongly recommended.
Excerpt: I am learning to use the Windows 8.1 operating system and cannot wait to receive the new Windows 10 upgrade in the fall of 2015 (free UPGRADE) since I just purchased this tower a few days ago. I am enjoying the increased RAM, processor speed, and the Hard Drive storage will be very sufficient for my computer needs.
