I bought this computer last year and have used it for work and play every day. My husband also uses this computer for his work and for storing his photo files on it, downloading music, watching programmes he has missed on the tv and many more things. I would say that it is a really good household and work computer with very little problems to complain about.
One of the only problems I have encountered is finding a suitable keyboard to go with it but one of the guys on the help line sorted me out no troubles and I have never looked back since.
Iwould not hesitate to recommend this computer to you but I dont know if they make it anymore. I needed to upgrade the DVD/RW drive on it because there was some problem with using a work based software I had on it and the person I spoke with at their call centre said something about it not being available now, they have an upgraded version of this computer but I am sorry to say that I dont know what it is.
The technical blurb on this computer is as follows (prepare to be impressed and cry 'not bad for a girl'); it has a 250GB hard drive, 1GB RAM, Pentium D Processor, CD/RW and a DVD/RW and there are a total of 6 USB ports!
All in all, I would recommend this PC for most household uses and for its ease of use.
