Great price works fine it will run Windows 10

Jeffery T., Newegg

  • Summary: For what I paid($69) it works great. In hindsight I should have just installed Windows 10 from the get go. I tried 2 Windows Fix-it's and numerous other solutions to get Windows 7 to update.
  • Pros: This was a replacement PC for my son. Plays Mine Craft, you tube videos. I upgraded the memory to 4GB and installed a Nvidia Geforce GT 610 video card. For less than $100 a functional PC.
  • Cons: I was unable to get Windows 7 to update. I wasted a weekend trying to do that. So I installed Window 10 from a flash drive and it works great.

  • Summary: I would recommend this to people who are experienced messing with the internals of computers. It's a cheap alternative when you need a capable PC for a specific task, but you may need to tweak it to get it running and functioning the way you need.
  • Pros: A good computer in small form factor, easy to open and to access components. I bought this to serve a specific function: serving as a home recording studio computer - this met the specs of my software, and I did not need any more bells and whistles. I have not yet installed or used the software, ...
  • Cons: There were several issues with the computer when it arrived, and was not ready to plug in and use. First, there were things rattling around in the case, and I had to open it up to find the loose screw that was bouncing around in the CPU fan. Second, and much more of a problem for people not used ...

  • Summary: when the promotion doesn't equal the actual product, it kinda leaves a bad egg taste in your mouth........

  • Pros: Nice price for it's speed.

  • Summary: My elderly, vision-impaired, housebound step-dad called from Az. and asked if I had a spare computer I could send him when his 12 y/o antique went up in smoke last month. The internet on a magnified widescreen monitor he got from VA is virtually his only form of entertainment.
  • Pros: Great computer for the money.
  • Cons: Absolutely none.
