Summary: I think I was the odd client who had problems. The system I ordered was a desktop model with 4GB of RAM with a Xeon quad CPU. At ordering I learned I was getting a speed upgrade from 2.4GHZ to 2.6GHZ. Nice. When I got the system it was very well packaged and padded. It was in good physical condition. It was not what I expected: It had 1GB of RAM installed instead of 4GB, was Small Form Factor, not Desktop, and the upgraded CPU was not a Xeon, but a Core 2 Quad.
Summary: Good computer, starts up quickly. The power cord that came with it didn't fit properly and I had to replace it. So far the computer does what it's supposed to. I wish I would have paid attention and got windows 7 software instead of windows xp.
Summary: This is an okay computer for an office and typical office applications like word documents and spreadsheets. I wouldn't really use this for anything that will need lots of horsepower, like graphics work. It tends to strain when I'm running too many applications. Overall, a decent computer.
Summary: If you purchase this product realize it must be updated with over 100 updates from Windows. Some updates can't be updated until restarted. Be prepared to take a couple of hrs to update machine. It should come with the most recent updates but doesn't. Machine is fast and came in good condition but the software is a problem.
Summary: NOTE: Since I purchased this item the description has changed. It no longer mentions the Xeon processor as it did when I bought it. FYI. M.Smith brought this to my attention. Thanks you Smith! I think I was the odd client who had problems. The system I ordered was a desktop model with 4GB of RAM with a Xeon quad CPU. At ordering I learned I was getting a speed upgrade from 2.4GHZ to 2.6GHZ. Nice. When I got the system it was very well packaged and padded.
Summary: Was delivered on time as expected works well the dvd drive worked the first time I used it but after that it does not work had to order an external dvd cd drive....there is no software installed to burn any disks. I can live with it. I mainly bought for the amount of RAM on the computer so I can do my school work.
