Entertainment? Hardly!

  • User Rating: Excellent

  • Ease of Use:
  • Quality of Tech Support:

Pros:Good Design, Great Speed, processory and memory. Lots of Hard drive space.

Cons:The ONLY CON..., it has Windows Vista!!!

The Bottom Line: I would not recommend this computer or any new computer... until Windows Vista is no longer used.


I bought this computer because I needed one for school use mainly. But when i went looking for a computer, I chose this one specifically because of it's entertainment value. With a  AMD X2 dual-core 2.10 Gigahertz processory, 4.00 GB Ram, a 250 Gigabyte hard-drive and the sleek silver design, I was in love instantly. And a Sam's Club price of $899, it was well worth it...., or so I thought.

I brought it home, and was still in love with the 17 inch computer screen, the silver case design, and the computer itself couldn't be beat. What would have made it my ideal computer, would be if it had Windows XP on it.

The computer came pre-loaded with Windows Vista. I allowed it to update automatically, and then what happens....., my computer crashes! Not jus a manual restart crash mind you..., but a have to use the total restore crash. I lost everything, all my things I had already loaded onto my computer, pics that I had already put on it, everything!!!!

I thought initially, that it was something I had downloaded, so I blamed myself for not being more careful. However, the next time it happened only 2 days later, I had not installed anything, downloaded anything, and the only thing that had downloaded was the windows update!!! I have returned the computer...., and am now back to using my old computer. I sit hit crying, because I will not buy another computer that comes with Windows Vista.
