It does work very well, however it is not the best for online gaming. My children are always playing games on the computer and the computer lags quite a bit. Sometimes it lags so much that they cannot play their games. In general for regular light usage it seems to be fine. I have an external hard drive and still need more to keep this running properly. Ease of Use Very easy to use. Durability It is very durable. Design Fairly stylish Performance It lags quie a bit. Not a computer for avid online gamers.
