Love Vista, i just plugged my Virgin cable router in and it told me I had internet - no set up required at all!

Had some issues with getting sound through a Realtek audio, but a quick call to support identified I needed to load a new driver. It was sorted in minutes.

Rory,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Ok, not the worlds fastest dual core but it is Intel Pentium Dual Core none the less. A good looking midi tower, hides a DL DVD RW, a 250gb HDD and 2gb 677mhz DDR2 RAM. Almost silent when running, you could leave the pc on overnight in the bedroom and it wouldn't bother you at all.

Bought this as a replacement for my son's pc. Obviously, it ain't gonna compare with with my quadcore but for what my son needs it for, it's MORE than adequate.

Turned it on, it set it's self up more or less.

A bit of spare room for my son's graphics card to go in the PCI Express slot, added his old SATA HDD, his DVD RW and his sound card after Vista was set up, Windows Update then downloaded SP1, SP2, and loads of other bits including the drivers for the newly added hardware. A piece of cake.
Bad points:
As usual, bundled with loads of bits that no-one wants, shortcuts to games, ebay, kodak etc but not really a problem. Uninstalled as soon as possible. Bad points? none really other than the fact that it comes without a windows disc, you have to make your own recovery disc ASAP, but the process is mainly guided by the Packard Bell wizard so it's easy enough, took me about 30 mins including the disc burns.
