quiet reliable office PC

Marcus Schoepke, Amazon
5 May 2012
  • Summary: I have had this computer for little over 2 years. It served me very well as office PC. With an added 128GB SSD it is blazing fast (any program starts in less than a second), but even the stock HDD was fast enough. When I installed it for the first time, I remember that I was amazed how quiet it was.

That'll do pig, that'll do (Gateway SX2800)

Johnny Angel Soto, Amazon
30 January 2012
  • Summary: I bought this PC used although practically new for about 200$. The hard drive had given out on the previous owner (I don't know specifics). I love to troubleshoot so this PC was a godsend. It's quite sexy and the speakers are very useful for I don't use headphones. This PC is great, in my opinion.

Great at first but DIED shortly after - NOT RELIABLE

Adil, Amazon

  • Summary: At first, this computer was super fast and not bad for its price. It was working awesomely for about the first 10 months. HOWEVER, after that it started to crash. I've had this computer for only a year and a half and it is dieing on me!

Fast and Quiet

  • Summary: A couple of these machines showed up at work this summer, and I was so impressed I just ordered one for myself. I have been using it to do some pretty memory and cpu intensive calculations (FEM stuff with Comsole Multiphysics) and it eats it up like a champ.

Tiny, Screamin' Fast Quad-core Budget Computer

UFO6, Amazon
26 April 2011
  • Summary: I've had this system for over three years and it's performed spectacularly without a hitch. The only downsides are those that everybody capable of reading knew before they bought it: The system comes in a very small case, which means a conveniently-tiny footprint but also not much room for upgrading...

Great value for $500

Carl, Amazon
26 April 2011
  • Summary: UPDATE: For $500 this was a great value. For $999 it most definitely is not. My original review: I was looking for a simple (not for gaming) Windows PC. Since I am no longer a hobbyist when it comes to building computers, I really was looking for something that would work well, have a small...
