Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Fast, quiet and inexpensive. Provided you're an IT expert and are prepared to compromise on what programs you use, and you are prepared to work at it, it's a good machine to act as a workhorse, but don't expect it to be a smooth ride.
Bad points:
I think the issues are all down to Vista Home Basic which is awful. It frequently crashes, more software doesn't work than does, some software works one day then not the next, The Roxio software supplied with the PC is not compatible and doesn't work at all. None of the TV/Sky programs like BBC iPlayer, Channel 4 On Demand etc will work and Office 2000 programs behave oddly if at all. Windows Defender is a complete pain
