Christmas before last, we go out to the store and buy a brand new laptop computer for mom, right after the warranty runs out, the computer breaks! My husband bought this computer on Ebay, it needed a hard drive and had a few other issues but it works! I use it consonantly I have been on it for the last 12 hours with just a 6 hour break and it is running strong. It's fast and right now I have about 8 internet sites up and am having no problems at all. It's an older unit, using an older windows program and so much better they then expensive unit we purchased in 2007. Of course it uses XP instead of Vista, we really like these computers so much, that we are considering another. This is a good computer for surfing the web and for doing bookkeeping, if your a techie it might not have everything you need but I have yet to have any problems with the unit. I play games on-line, do surveys, write reviews and emails, they are a little bigger and heavier then some of the newer units but at least it works unlike the newer unit that I had.
