Pros: On sale for $100, you can rip the HDD ( hard drive) and get the OS ( operating system) and all the storage that comes with. You can also get the optical drive out of the system. So if you want to do a new build, than you can get these parts and put them into your system.

Summary: There are 4 memory 1/2 gig memory sticks filling all 4 slots, Great for a call center where used order connected to auto dialer system / soft phone and sales order placement . 2 Gigs ram actually runs lite apps on windows 7 smoothly.

Summary: If you are looking for a good functional light use computer this is a good fit. The Windows Experience Index rating for this system is only 3.3, mostly because of the low end on-board graphics card.
Pros: Very clean, almost mint condition Delivers with Windows 7 new installation - no problems registering Win 7 SP-1 already installed Very good packaging Low cost Fast delivery
Summary: My dad wanted a computer system for a general movie-watching and internet use while he's working out in my old room. I was surprisingly shocked at the quality and the performance of this off-lease system.
