Summary: I was able to upgrade this "Vista Ready" machine to Win7 without any problems. So far it has worked well for my purpose. I wish it had a faster processor but the video card makes up for the processor speed for watching online video. Screen isn't as bright as I had hoped.
Summary: Great value but too many teaser programs. Becareful in uninstalling the teaser programs, you may loose the DVD/CD driver. One may ended up going to microsoft service web site to correct the problem. No recovery disc comes with the computer, prepare to pay for it.
