The Compaq Presario SR5710F desktop computer gives you bigtime performance at a tiny price. This is a middle of the road performance desktop computer that gives any average joe all he or she needs for everyday computing. This desktop computer takes advantage of an intel pentium processor, so you know that it has decent processing speed for internet, games, and daily tasks. The Compaq computer comes with one single dvd +or- recorder/player and CD+- recorder. The disc drive is also Lightscribe compatible, so you can laser inscribe on your burned dvds and cds. It's pretty impressive, but it takes quite a while to label one disc and the Lightscribe discs are more expensive than regular recordible dvds/cds. There are free slots for upgrading or adding additional disc players. I added a second recordable dvd/cd player that ,also, had Blu- Ray playing capacity. Another upgrade necessity is that this comes with a rollerball mouse and a laser or optical mouse is a definite improvement. Overall, this mid power PC is great for the average user or office worker who wants decent performance at a fair price.
