Desktop's has just gone better. Lenovo (aka IBM) sure has redesigned their way of making PC nowadays. This already comes with 17" LCD monitor, an optional desktop or tower casing for your CPU, an optical/usb mouse and keyboard. For almost 1 grand, this sure has live up to my expectations. Core 2 Duo processor with 2Gb of RAM makes this an enormous machine. I think what makes this a little expensive is the operating system pre-installed (which also makes me a little unhappy).
Some pre-installed softwares are also provided but needs payment when activated (e.g. Anti-virus). At first, I find it slow since it was still downloading updates-basically a software thing. This is basically ideal for office use but would also fit for your home. I've been playing video games as well as doing office work on this one and have not found any problems so far. I would recommend this to potential buyers.
