    Pros: good running comp
    Cons: none

    Summary: I purchased an NEC computer last semester. It was a great investment, it was cheap, and that did not reflect in the performance as of yet. It has served me well, it is a fast computer, especially hooked up to the university network. It came with a ... read more
