    5-0 out of 5 stars Macking301
    It has been three years since I bought my last Apple computer.

    When I saw this G5 20" widescreen that now comes fully loaded, I was very impressed. It was loaded with TIGER (OS X.4) which ran like a Benz!

    Thats before I got this big boy home!

    Wow, loaded with wireless networking, bluetooth and a fast DVD double sided burner using a high speed connection, it is rocket fast and a state of the art machine!

    It was easy to connect and all I needed for my own taste was an extra 512 meg of ram at $75.00.

    I can now use Adobe Photoshop along with iPhoto and other applications all at the same time, and the spinning wheel is a thing of the past. The iMac is now a VERY fast aand smooth running machine.

    I have the wireless Apple keyboard and mouse that came with mine and it only adds to the thrill of this zoom computer.

    I could go on and on...but....

    Pro's- the entire iMac !!!!
    Cons? None!This is a thing of beauty and performs so well that I am truly amazed. Its the best computer I have ever owned or for that matter ever used!\

    THIS IS A MUST SEE -MUST USE AND A MUST OWN!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Biggest fastest iMac G5 now even faster
    Apple is, quite simply, the best and most innovative computer manufacturer. A recent article in Consumer Reports identified Apple computers as the most reliable computers and PC Magazine user surveys have reached the same conclusion. Furthermore, PC Magazine regularly designates the iMac G5 as the best all around desktop computer. Now the ultra-reliable, user friendly iMac G5 has an even faster G5 processor.

    Yes, most people use Windows-based PCs, but do you really want to be just another member of the PC herd -- with all of the problems and frustrations presented by Windows-based PCs (including regular virus attacks) -- or are you looking for a computer which is user friendly, seldom crashes, and is virtually impervious to viruses? If these virtues are more important to you than being one of the crowd, please seriously consider buying an Apple computer. This new iMac G5 is Apple's latest and fastest iteration of the innovative iMac series of compact, user friendly computers at reasonable prices. Like all G5-powered Apple computers this new iMac is a very fast computer -- more than twice as fast as a Pentium 4 with the same clock speed -- and has a state-of-the-art 64-bit processor. All computers will have 64-bit processors some day but very few PCs, except for Apple G5s, have them at this time. If you're looking for a fast, versatile, easy to use computer, want to stop worrying abut virus attacks, and are willing to try something off the beaten path, you'll love this elegant and now faster new iMac G5. A less expensive model of the faster new iMac G5 is available with a 17" screen. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great for weekenders or construction pros.
    I have been using the National Construction Estimators for about 30 years now. I've found that their information is amazingly accurate. I first started using NCE for residential construction as a small contractor in the 1970s. During the 1980s and 1990s I used the latest revision for job costing at major government facilities. Since 2000 I'm using the latest edition to cost out repairs and upgrades to apartment buildings. Each year they get the latest prices and revise the book. This year is no exception, the latest edition is full of facts, figures, rules of thumb, detailed material costs, and everything you need to figure construction work from the smallest job to the largest. Whether you want to add up each spike and yard of concrete, or figure estimated complete subcontract work, this book gives you the tools. Residential, multifamily, commercial, or government, it's all here.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A superb, professional-quality, industry-standard reference
    Now in its 53rd updated edition, 2005 National Construction Estimator is a no-nonsence resource designed expressly to aid in estimating labor and material costs, manhours, and city cost adjustments for residential, commercial, and industrial construction. 2005 National Construction Estimator consists almost entirely of tables listing prices for each piece of hardware (or manhours); an index allows for swift lookup of individual components. Monthly price updates are automatically available on the web throughout 2005, for free; an accompanying CD-ROM features "National Estimator", a program that will aid the reader since it has all the book's cost estimates plus an easy-to-use Windows program that allows one to quickly and efficiently add up totals for a final ballpark figure. A program called Job Cost Wizard transforms estimates into invoices and exports to QuickBooks Pro. A superb, professional-quality, industry-standard reference.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great computer for mom, dad, and grandparents
    If you ever wanted to get a computer so that your parents and grandparents can keep in touch, get this one. The main reason why I wouldn't recommended a PC is because of all of the viruses and spyware that clog most machines today. My parents have 2 PCs in their home. A virus killed one machine. Spyware and popups slowed down the other machine to the point where web surfing is rendered useless.

    Macs don't have to deal so much with viruses and spyware like PCs. Admittedly, you should double the ram. And maybe get a wireless keyboard to free up some USB ports.

    Overall, this is the perfect PC replacement for mom,pop, grandpa, and grandma.

    (...)

    All in all, this machine is great for all the applications your parents will ever really use.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Base Configuration should have 512MB RAM
    Very happy with the machine, but it should have double the RAM as part of the standard configuration.Anything more than 2 apps running at one time and it slows down noticably.

    The software suite that comes with the machine is awesome.Easy to use and tightly integrated.I'm using this machine for digital photo management and for web surfing. No spyware/virus problems with my mini (so far!).

    As much as I like it, this machine doesn't have the omph to run the apps I really love, namely 1st person games.My AMD Athlon 1800+ with the same graphics chip (Radeon 9200) runs Call of Duty at high res with acceptable frame rates, while the mini is choppy running a demo version of the same game at 800x600.

    Oh well.That's why I'm running both my mini and my WINTEL machine with a KVM.I can always switch back and forth by tapping a few keys.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Mac, but you can't get it for free!
    (...)

    It is a well-known fact that these "programs" are run like pyramid schemes. Only the first few people to sign up actually got a Mac mini (it doesn't take a genius to see that you won't be the first sucker here). The rest just get heaps of telemarketing calls, junk faxes, and junk emails.

    I ought to know--I'm one of the chumps that was foolish enough to try! Please, learn from my mistake and don't help these jokers rope in any more people.

    The Mac mini is a great computer. (...)

    4-0 out of 5 stars Mac Mini Makes Sense
    I have always been in love with Apple Computers. Whether its' the design, construction, or hardware, it always gets to me. When I purchased my Mac Mini, I couldn't believe it. The thing is so tiny, its' the size of my hands, and its' unbelievably light-weight. It is the perfect thing to put on your desk. Even if there is a lot of clutter on your work area, the Mac Mini fits like its' nobody's business. When I purchased my Mac Mini, I added two things that everyone needs:

    1. Doubled Ram
    2. Keyboard and Mouse

    Why do you need both of these things? The Mac Mini performs poorly on the minimum ram. Sadly, most Mac's do. For the keyboard and the mouse, the keyboard comes with an extra USB port in the back of it strictly for the one button mouse that Apple has to offer. So, you get an extra USB port on the back of your system for a camera, printer, etc. PLUS, all Mac keyboards have an eject button, so you don't have to move to the edge of your system to get the disc out. Never the less, you can use your old keyboard and mouse without a problem. I just recomend you buy it for the Mac Mini. However, you still need the extra ram, because you are going to need it. For your monitor, most people would have to buy an adapter. The port on the system is the most different of most monitor cables. So, you have to check the wire. The Apple Store have a huge selection of adapters, so go there if you need help finding one. All monitors work well with Mac Mini.

    I love my Mac Mini. But why did I give it four stars? Look back. Apple gives you nothing with the Mini. If you don't own a PC, you will have to buy a keyboard, mouse, monitor, and RAM! Although, after that, it's still cheaper than the next small priced Mac, the eMac. I recomend this computer over any PC (Dell, Gateway, WHATEVER!) because it is small, and has better applications than the other systems. In essence, the Mac Mini makes sense.

    Recomended Software:

    -TIGER: Mini comes with panther until April 29th 2005. It is important that you wait until then, or upgrade your Mini after. For more information on Tiger, visit the Apple Homepage.
    -.Mac: Membership to a whole new experience with E-Mail, Advanced Tools, and Virus Protection.
    -Microsoft Office: Excel, Powerpoint, and Word are must-haves.

    Mac Mini comes with iLife, so you can play around with Garageband, listen to music on iTunes, enjoy pictures with iPhoto, and watch homevideos.

    this is most suckiest computer I've ever used.I wouldn't even call it a computer other than chips with programs.You cant even upgrade the thing after you by it. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars The worst computer experience i have ever had.
    I had decided to try switching from PCs to macs recently, and thought the mac mini would make a good first mac computer.

    I ordered my first mini with all the extras and when i got it, i tried importing all my cds to itunes. The optical drive was malfunctioning whenever i put in a cd with the slightest scratch on it. It would freeze up, making an awful skipping sound, and i would have to force quit itunes and sometimes shut down the computer and turn it back on just to get the sound to stop and get my cd out.

    I called tech support, and the first man said there was nothing wrong with the drive, it was my cds that were at fault. Their solution was to take my scratched cd to my PC, burn it and take it back to my mac mini and then try to import it.

    I said, ok, so my cds should work on other computers, but not the mini? and he kept saying how it was my cds and not the mini. I asked him if i could return my mini and he said no because i had bought extras like more ram and bluetooth. so i got off the phone with him and called back again.

    The next tech support "help" also told me there was nothing wrong with the computer but i could return it (but not exchange it because there was nothing wrong with it). He transferred me to someone who told me i could exchange it, which i did.

    Now, my next mini comes in the mail, without my bluetooth and airport extreme options. "Oops, sorry", they say, "we can return it and we'll send you another mini." I took it to my local store and they very nicely installed them for free in 45 minutes. So, now with less enthusiasm for my new purchase, i took my mini home, and tried out the optical drive again, which again had troubles. Now i should mention I took the same cd's that wouldnt work on my mini, and they worked on my PC and on my friend's mac.

    I called back the apple store and all they would give me for compensation was a return for my mini (not the $60 keyboard i can no longer return at the store) and $100 credit for my next apple purchase. I said sorry, that's not enough for the hassle that i will probably go through again.

    Never, never again will I buy an apple product. This whole hassle lasted for most of a month, and it is still not over yet. Time for me to buy another reasonably priced PC. My mac friends are all about their mac's, but first impressions are lasting, aren't they?


    5-0 out of 5 stars No free anything
    Clicking your way past this barrage of come-ons finally gets you to the meat of the matter. Incentive Reward Center says you have to sign up for at least two offers from participating firms to get your hands on that free iPod.

    It looks like there might be some freebies here, but most of the offers are for DVD and music services, credit cards and other such strings-attached programs.

    according to sfgate.com

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing little machine
    i'm really impressed at how fast this thing goes. it was ready to go out of the box after a 3 minute setup, it's really fast for only having 256mb of ram, i love the combo drive, tiger is great. it's practically silent unless the combo drive is running. and it's super easy to use. it also has a lot of programs for 600 bucks, i think it's great and highly reccomend it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Don't make my mistake!
    I made a big mistake by trying those "get a Mac Mini free" offers. Only 1 day after signing up, I was bombarded with over 500 junk emails and 15 telemarketing calls. Ugh!

    I hope everybody here can learn from my misfortune--I guess it really is true that it is impossible to get something for nothing!

    The Mac Mini is a great computer. It's too bad sleazy "marketers" are using them as bait for their fraudulent schemes.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nice package
    The RA8xxx Series from Sony is very nice.Big plus is the cooling system.The machine is super quiet.The integrated Home Media support is a nice bonus.I don't think I'd want to use one of these as a TiVo replacement but for a home machine it's tough to beat from a combination of style, power, features and performance.

    Negatives are the crappy mouse and keyboard and having to burn your own Recovery software.

    1-0 out of 5 stars buyer beware!!
    Just bought this yesterday at compusa. Will be taking it back tomorrow morning. This is the 5th computer I have owned and the worse I have ever seen. Sony has allot of wonderful software on this system and impressive 5.1 speakers that come with it. But you are screwed if you have to do a system recovery. Followed the directions and spent 2 hours making recovery disks before putting any of my software on it, only to find out that when it tries to recover your system it prompts you to insert disk #1 and press ok. Guess what? You can't press ok because your wireless mouse and keyboard are no longer functional. And turning off the computer wiped out ALL my system restore checkpoints. So I couldn't even restore to a earlier time. When I tried it again I then got a message that it couldn't locate the recovery partion. And forget about any type of help from the website or the non-existant user manual. The only help they had was to change the batteries in the mouse and keyboard (they already had brand new batteries). ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Faster processor in the user-reliable bargain-priced iMac G5
    Apple is, quite simply, the best and most innovative computer manufacturer. A recent article in Consumer Reports identified Apple computers as the most reliable computers and PC Magazine user surveys have reached the same conclusion. Furthermore, PC Magazine regularly designates the iMac G5 as the best all around desktop computer. Now the ultra-reliable, user friendly iMac G5 computers all have faster G5 processors than last year's models.

    Yes, most people use Windows-based PCs, but do you really want to be just another member of the PC herd -- with all of the problems and frustrations presented by Windows-based PCs (including regular virus attacks) -- or are you looking for a computer which is user friendly, seldom crashes, and is virtually impervious to viruses? If these virtues are more important to you than being one of the crowd, please seriously consider buying an Apple computer. This new iMac G5 is Apple's latest and fastest iteration of the innovative iMac series of compact, user friendly computers at reasonable prices. Like all G5-powered Apple computers this new iMac is a very fast computer -- more than twice as fast as a Pentium 4 with the same clock speed -- and has a state-of-the-art 64-bit processor. All computers will have 64-bit processors some day but very few PCs, except for Apple G5s, have them at this time. If you're looking for a fast, versatile, easy to use computer, want to stop worrying abut virus attacks, and are willing to try something off the beaten path, you'll love this elegant and now faster new iMac G5. If you want a larger monitor and even faster processor check out the 20" iMac G5. ... Read more

    Product Description

    The 64-bit professional dream machine.

    Professionals need superior tools to produce designs, music, high-definition video or the next scientific breakthrough. The Power Mac G5 line extends as far as you require. Two 64-bit G5 processors reaching a top speeds of 2.7GHz, room for up to 8GB of main memory, pro performance graphics cards and ultrahigh-bandwidth system architecture will give you more results than systems costing twice as much. Dual processing starts at an affordable price.

    Supersonic Speed
    The Power Mac G5 offers the 2.7GHz dual-processor model with a speed boost at the top of the line. This model packs so much power into tight quarters that Apple designed a liquid cooling system for it, resulting in a cool tower that runs Photoshop nearly two times faster than a Pentium 4-based system. In fact, for most creative endeavors, the Power Mac G5 simply has no competition in its class.

    A 64-bit OS for Your 64-bit Machine
    Every Power Mac G5 comes with Tiger, the latest release of Mac OS X. Search your entire Power Mac in a single click with Spotlight, access up-to-the-second information with Dashboard and run all of your software faster. With its 64-bit features, Tiger also provides access to as much physical memory as you can install in your PowerMac G5. Even 32-bit applications benefit from the system’s ability to access large amounts of RAM: The system can manipulate data in multiple applications entirely in RAM for maximum performance.

    This model features one optical drive:

    • a DL DVD+/-RW SuperDrive
      • Create a Dual Layer DVD+R at a maximum 4X Write speed
      • Create a DVD-R at a maximum 16X Write speed
      • Play a DVD at a maximum 16X Read speed
      • Create a CD-Rom at a maximum 24X Write speed

    5-0 out of 5 stars Apple Power Mac Dual 2.7GHz G5
    This is the new version of the Power Mac G5. I currently own the G5 with the dual 2.5GHz in it but now I'm willing to upgrade. They have four versions of this Power Mac right now: Single 1.8GHz, Dual 2.0GHz, Dual 2.3GHz, and Dual 2.7GHz. They have lowered the prices too which is nice. For some reason I like to go with the most expensive because if you think about it in the long run I would rather spend money on a exceptional computer with technology not even seen on most computers today and have it for 10 years. AMD and Intel are now making dual core processors but they can't stand up to the G5's dual processor capability. No Windows desktop can even have 8GB of RAM either. Most Windows PCs I see today have up to 4-5GB of RAM. This one had 512MB RAM which I would upgrade to atleast 2GB. 250 GB Hard Drive is good but I would recommend getting a 500GB or 800GB hard drive so you'll know you will always have room to store things. It has DVD+/-RW drive upgraded from the DVD-R drive from the previous model. This is better because now the drive can be rewritable. I love the design of the G5 and I can't wait what Apple will do with the G6 or their next power house PC. It comes with Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger which is brand new to the market. It's better than the 10.3 no doubt. I haven't upgraded to it the 10.4 yet but I am soon since I am getting this G5. Everything from this model I have heard about is awesome and I can't wait until I pick mine up.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Power Mac Yet
    This is by far the best power mac yet introduced. wow, what speed. but where is the promised 3GHz???? where is the PCIe? maybe next time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Not A 3Ghz but thanks for the heads up Amazon
    I should probably wait until Apple announces this new bad boy to write a real review. I'm sure it will be great though.

    Cheers.

    1-0 out of 5 stars What a joke!
    We were suppost to have a dual 3Ghz Powermac G5, alomst a year ago! Isn't that what I promised? Ha, what a joke, 2.7 GHz! Oh, a nice .2 GHz speed bump. Here you go, you're welcome!

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Whether editing your family photos, balancing your online checkbook, or listening to your digital music collection, Compaq's SR1401NX offers a versatile, strong base for your home computing needs. Focusing on affordability, the SR1401NX has room to grow with an available expansion slot, 2 available PCI slots, 5 USB ports for connecting peripherals, and the ability to add up to 2 GB of RAM. This desktop comes with a 40 GB hard drive, 256 MB of installed RAM, 2.66 GHz Intel Celeron processor, 48x CD writer, and a multi-format memory card reader. For a step up in price, the SR1410NX offers a faster Celeron processor, 80 GB hard drive, and a combo DVD/CD-RW drive.

    The Basics

    • Hard Drive: Since the focus is on affordability, the SR1401NX comes with just a 40 GB hard drive (7200 RPM). While this may have sounded gigantic at one time, it is one of the smallest hard drives you'll find in a desktop computer. That said, it offers more than enough room for home office productivity software, storing family photos, and a decent-sized digital audio library.
    • Processor: The Intel Celeron D 330 processor might not be as sexy as a Pentium, but it still gets your work done speedily enough. It has a 2.66 GHz speed with a decently fast 533 MHz front-side bus (FSB) and 256K L2 cache. (An L2, or secondary, cache temporarily stores data; and a larger L2 cache can help speed up your system's performance.)
    • Memory: The 256 MB of installed RAM will get you started, but you'll want to add more to handle any kind of multimedia application and most business productivity suites. This desktop has a 2 GB maximum RAM capacity.
    • CD/DVD Drive: This desktop includes a speedy CD burner, with 48x write/read and 32x rewrite speeds. While this won't play DVDs, you can use one of the 5.25-inch expansion slots to add an optional DVD drive.
    • Keyboard & Mouse: The SR1401NX comes with a Compaq keyboard and scroller mouse (both with PS/2 connections.
    Screen, Graphcs and Sound
    The integrated Intel Extreme Graphics video/graphics card (with 64 MB of shared video memory) is adequate for streaming Internet video, but won't be enough for today's demanding immersive 3D games. It also features an integrated audio card and headhphone, microphone, and line-in jacks.

    Connectivity and Expansion Slots
    For expansion, the SR1401NX has two 5.25-inch external bays (one available), one external 3.5-inch bay (available) and one internal 3.5-inch bay (occupied), and three PCI slots (two available). It comes with a built-in floppy drive and the following external connectors:

    • 5 USB 2.0 ports (1 in front, 4 in rear) for connecting a wide range of peripherals--from digital cameras to MP3 players
    • 2 FireWire (also known as IEEE 1394 or i.Link) port for connecting digital video camcorders and other peripherals (1 in front, 1 in rear)
    • 1 parallel port for connecting older printers and scanners
    • 2 PS/2 ports for connecting keyboards and mice
    • 1 VGA monitor port
    • 9-in-1 media card reader on the front, compatible with CompactFlash (Type I and II), MicroDrive, SmartMedia, Memory Stick/Memory Stick Pro, MultiMedia Card, Secure Digital, and XD Picture Card
    It also has an integrated 56K modem (V.90) and an RJ-45 LAN network port (for a 10/100 Ethernet connection to networks and DSL/cable modems).

    Preloaded System and Software
    This system comes with the Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 operating system with Advanced Security Technologies, which helps to reduce unwanted downloads and pop-ups while surfing the Web. It also comes preloaded with Microsoft Works (for working with word processing and spreadsheet documents), Norton Internet Security 2005 (with 60 days of complimentary updates), InterMute SpySubtract Pro (with 60 days of complimentary updates), Microsoft Money 2005, Quicken 2005 New User Edition, Sonic RecordNow, Apple iTunes, Adobe Photoshop Album Starter Edition, and MSN Encarta 2005.

    Dimensions and Weight
    This desktop measures 15.35 x 7.17 x 16.54 inches (HxWxD) and weighs approximately 30 pounds.

    What's in the Box

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Whether you're e-mailing family and friends, balancing your online checkbook, or listening to your digital music collection, Compaq's SR1320NX offers a versatile, strong base for your home computing needs. Focusing on affordability, the SR1320NX has room to grow with the ability to add up to 2 GB of RAM and a wide variety of peripherals via its seven USB 2.0 ports. It's also ready for your multimedia needs, with a dual layer DVD/CD burner and a multiformat memory card reader that's compatible with today's most popular digital camera formats. Other features include an 80 GB hard drive, 512 MB of installed RAM, and a 1.8 GHz AMD Sempron 3100+ processor.

    The Basics

    • Hard Drive: Offering more than enough room for everyday computing needs and a decent-sized multimedia library, the 80 GB hard drive (7200 RPM) is average compared to other desktop PCs in this range. You can boost your storage space by adding optional external hard drives via the USB 2.0 or Firewire ports.
    • Processor: A lower-end cousin to AMD's XP processor line, the 1.8 GHz AMD Sempron 3100+ found in this desktop is compatible in speed with Intel's 2.9 GHz Celeron processor. It's speedy enough for everyday computing needs and running office productivity software, but won't be quite enough for higher-end video editing or 3D gaming. It also features a 1600 MHz front-side bus (FSB) and a 256 KB L2 cache. (An L2, or secondary, cache temporarily stores data; and a larger L2 cache can help speed up your system's performance.)
    • Memory: The 512 MB of installed RAM (PC2700) is adequate for running office productivity and audio software, but you'll want to take advantage of the roomy 2 GB of total RAM capacity (2 x 1 GB)for such multimedia needs as video editing and immersive 3D gaming.
    • CD/DVD Drive: Offering the latest in DVD writing technology, the SR1320NX multiformat DVD/CD drive is compatible with both DVD+ and DVD- disc formats as well as dual-layer DVD+R discs, which can store up to 8.5 GB of data. It features16x DVD+R, 8x DVD-R, 4x DVD+/-RW, 2.4x DVD+R DL, 16x DVD-ROM, 40x CDR, 24x CDRW, and 40x CD-ROM ROM speeds.
    • Keyboard & Mouse: This desktop PC comes with the Compaq Productivity keyboard and scroller mouse, both of which connect to the PS/2 ports on the back of the machine.
    Graphics and Sound
    The SR1320NX features audio and video cards that are integrated into the computer's main board. The sound card uses the AC'97 (Audio Codec '97) standard (configurable to 6 channels of audio). The video/graphics card has up to 64 MB of shared video memory. It is suitable for good range of gaming graphics and multimedia video playback, but might not stack up for ultra-realistic 3-D PC games.

    Connectivity and Expansion Slots
    For expansion, the SR1320NX has two 5.25-inch external bays (one available), one external 3.5-inch bay (one available) and one internal 3.5-inch bay (occupied), three PCI slots (two available), and one AGP slot (available). It comes with a built-in floppy drive and the following external connectors:

    • 7 USB 2.0 ports (3 in front, 4 in rear) for connecting a wide range of peripherals--from digital cameras to MP3 players
    • 1 FireWire (also known as IEEE 1394 or i.Link) port for connecting digital video camcorders and other peripherals
    • 1 parallel port for connecting older printers and scanners
    • 1 serial port for older peripherals such as early PDAs
    • 2 PS/2 ports for connecting keyboards and mice
    • 1 VGA monitor port
    • 1 microphone, 1 headphone
    • 1 line-out, and 1 line-in jack
    • 9-in-1 media card reader on the front, compatible with CompactFlash (Type I and II), MicroDrive, SmartMedia, Memory Stick/Memory Stick Pro, MultiMedia Card, Secure Digital, and XD Picture Card
    It also has an integrated 56K modem (V.90) and an RJ-45 LAN network port (for a 10/100 Ethernet connection to networks and DSL/cable modems).

    2-0 out of 5 stars ok for playing music, games not a high power pc at all
    I bought this pc to replace an e machines t 3085 that had a damaged motherboard. at first it seemed to be better and i have owned earlier compaqs that i loved. I have since repaired the t3085 and have them running side by side( I broke it to begin with not the fault of the manufacturer.) there is no comparison!!!
    the e machines is faster smoother and has no problem burning discs, playing games, and in short doing all of the tasks that you would expect to be able to do.
    the compaq features a faster burner but it will fail to burn
    a dvd -r 1/3rd of the time while the emachines has yet to fail
    once in the same time frame.

    prices are similar and compaq does not seem to be the same quality name they once were. i would not buy one again! ... Read more
