I'm not real knowledgeable when it comes to computers, but I cannot say how much I love my **emachine W3653 desktop computer**. It was my first computer and was a little reserved on how someone like me with no computer experience could manuever around. Having the **Microsoft Vista** **Operating System** made it easy for me. I was afraid to download anything from the internet and with the settings the way they were I was prompted for permission before any download. Some more advanced users says that is what they didn't like about Vista, but I found it to be very useful in not downloading anything I didn't want. My whole experience with my **emachine W3653 desktop computer **has been excellent. It comes with a starter guide and takes you through steps such as surfing the net, welcome to email, Using Windows Media Player (ripping, burning and playing CD's), keeping your computer safe, security center (up-to-date security) backing up and restoring your computer and improving your computer's performance. For someone just starting out this computer would be perfect for them in my opinion and would highly recommend it's purchase.
