This pc works well and is fast enough for me though I am not a gamer. Main complaint I have is when it goes to sleep or hibernate mode, I cannot just move mouse or use keyboard to resume. Only way to use computer once it went to sleep was to unplug pc then boot up. Tried many recommended settings changes to remedy with no luck. At one point thought I had solved problem, only to discover mouse then would not work w/o resetting after computer went to sleep. Finally settled on having to change computer and display settings to never hibernate or go to sleep mode. Means I must manually shutdown and restart computer or it would continually stay on. Inconvenient yes, but since everything else o.k., can live with. Also, when this pc is in the upright position as typically pictured and as most people would use/prefer to save space, inserting a CD is not ideal. CD likely to fall out of place when pc placed in upright (space-saving) position. Better to have pc flat if use CD's often.
It is not a great computer that I have been used so far, even for 8gb ram, the speed is still not as fast as my 4gb laptop lenovo.
The wireless is not functional as received, I have to fix that problem.......
Stay away if you could, not a great one to have. I may use it as a basement computer, that means only use it once a month...
It works okay, competently but not lightning fast. One MAJOR complaint: the illustration shown gives the IMPRESSION that this is a stand-up type of computer; when I got it I was very surprised to find that it was meant to be laid down horizontally, taking up valuable space on my desk. Had I known this, I would've settled on a different computer.
