Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Once out of the box I was surfing the web in under 30 minutes, I'm an IT technician & was expecting to have to do all sorts of tweaks do it including installing a dedicated graphics card to watch DVD's, The onboard graphics are more than capable of the task. Only thing I did was to install my prefered security suite (zone alarm) from an external USB device before pluging the network cable in. The sound quality is only as good as what speakers/headphones you use. Wasn't too keen on vista menus etc so changed what I could to resemble XP, with the added extras of vista including parental controls within minutes.Even having to create recovery discs is easy as the step by step instructions are in plain english. In short it's an ideal fanily pc.
Bad points:
Needs a graphics card for the latest games & you need to create your own recovery discs. That's if you can class them as bad points
