Summary: I couldn't be happier with this purchase. Not only was this unit just as described and clean as a whistle, they included a mouse and keyboard along with it. The extras were nothing expensive or anything like that, but it was nice to get them as I was needing a spare set for the raspberry pi I got not too long ago. I was up and running in no time flat and enjoying my new-to-me computer and especially enjoying the extra speed.

Summary: I was really happy til the mother"oard crapped out. Its no big deal though, they are only $30 or so. I am not mad because I have other computers. I bought this so I could run dolphin emulator. Which ran great til the motherboard disagreed. Not sure why it blew though. That still puzzles me.
Summary: This computer is listed by supporting up to 16gb of DDr3 memory but, when I researched the Intel x38 chip set motherboard on Intel's site. I found that the motherboard can only support up to 8GB\1333MHZ of DDr3. Furthermore, In the Dell t3400 Manual that is linked into the this listing at the bottom also states the pc (Even With the Core 2 Extreme Line) can only support 8GB\800Mhz of DDR3.
Summary: The computer is very quick given the processor and RAM. Shipping was fast. Only issue was the WIFI. It doesn't come with an internal wifi card, just a usb nano adapter, they provided and didn't work. Customer service was responsive and provided a link for drivers, but they didn't work on this computer, my laptop or office computer. They offered to replace it, but I just bought a Linksys one, which is better than the generic one they included anyway.
Summary: I needed this workstation due to a company still using an application that requires Windows XP only. I was setting this up for a client of mine. Workstation was shipped as advertised, clean, and works wonderfully. I chose this model due to being very familiar with them. This seller will definitely be my first choice for hardware needs when needed again.
