I was looking to upgrade my 2002 vintage Compaq that was still working but was straining with some of the active content on some web pages. I was going to buy components to upgrade but the price value equation was too strong not to buy this one. Set up was a breeze and the performance is a big step up from the old unit. Windows Experience ratings out of the box: 3.2 due to gaming graphics, but the processor rates 4.6, HDD 5.9, and memory 5.5...not too shabby. My only complaint is that there are only 4 USB ports on the rear, which get used up quickly. You may need to use a PS/2 keyboard or mouse if you need more. Performance wise, everything seems pretty fast web surfing and basic office aps. Hopefully I get another 8 years out of this Compaq!

My old PC broke and I really did not have the funds to get an expensive PC. I saw this one for $275.00 (PC only no monitor) and I could not belive the price. I was worried because it was a Compaq and the price was so low. I have always bought HP but I know they now make Compaq so I decided to try. I am very happy with my PC. It was everything I expected and more.
