Summary: I ordered this desktop for a friend who needed a basic computer and he is pleased with it so far. It's fine for the money but I would pay a little more and get a more recently manufactured machine if ordering for myself.
Summary: It is a Vista updated to Windows 7. S-o-o much faster than the old, still reliable Gateway Windows XP I bought back in 2005 (now is Feb. 2014). The 6GB memory just fine. I did some kind of system rating where it checks and rates components/capacities on 1-7 pt scale. All were near the top. Graphics rated lowest, but I've already done trial runs on the few favorite games I enjoy (slots on Facebook), and I have no complaints. Very happy with this purchase.
Summary: I received this PC and set it up. Everything was plug n play and worked flawlessly out of the box. For a machine that is just a dual core with 2 gigs of ram, it really is very fast. I highly recommend this machine as a home computer. While it is not a good gaming machine, it will do all normal home computing tasks effortlessly. This computer comes with Windows 7 32 bit already installed.
