Summary: Great value on a speedy and quick PC. This PC works as well for any student, family, or even an office. Obviously if you are running CAD or large desktop publishing files you are going to understandably spend more. But for most folks, this PC will more than suffice.
Pros: - Very quiet. You hardly know it is turned on. - Small footprint - Fast boot - Wireless and Gigabit Ethernet -64 bit OS - 2 TB hard drive (drive spins down to save energy when not in use) - Fast in general - Qualifies for the free upgrade to Windows 10 when released later this year. - Will run Li...

Summary: I have had this computer for a year and a half now and it is a very good computer for its price. It is not a "top-notch gaming computer" but it's a good computer to do minor gaming like: Minecraft (at 60 fps easily), Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Team Fortress 2, and Gary's Mod.
Summary: Bought this as a gift. Except for Windows 8, he loves it. I bought a program that eliminates the Windows Start screen so Windows 8 isn't as much of a problem anymore. Does anyone like/want Windows 8?

Summary: I purchased this computer for the express purpose of enjoying the Sims, and I can say to any similar searchers, this is excellent for my needs. I have all but three expansions, no stuff packs, but plenty of CC, and the machine runs like a dream.
