Speed This is more than sufficient for the majority of core computing requirements such as office applications, lets face it if you require a P.C. for graphic design or extensive database work you would be looking at something higher end.
Reliability I have been involved in the acquisition of over 60 of these in the last 12 months and not 1 has failed in any shaper or form!
Memory/capacity More than sufficient for core corporate or SOHO work, especially where alternative storage facilities are concerned say on a network or external back up solution is available, otherwise look at the 500 series which has a larger hard drive. ram is sufficient but easily and cheaply upgradeable.
Extra Features Very few other than a range of keyboard shortcuts which are programmable and useful.
Design Black and silver look is reasonably modern and suitable for most office enviroments but nothing spectacular.
In my opinion the best in the business, prompt telephone support at local call rates, 3 years parts and first year with a next day engineer on site if required, this is more than adequate because in my opinion if a P.C. is going to fail it is more likely to be in the first 12 months unless it is the hard drive, in which case it is easy to replace on a parts basis.
Basically not needed as with XP everything is pretty much plug and play and there is adequate online support.
Ease of Use
Comfortable keyboard with single adjustment legs, easy to access intelligent on/off button, could do with USB slots on the front which I understand has been addressed in later models.
Value for Money
It certainly is considering branding and reliability.
In summary I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for a good stable product with first class back up and support from a manufacturer who is unlikely to go bust and disappear overnight!
