ProFast quick reliable, functional and cheap

Conspreinstalled software can cause set up headaches.

“A hot to trot Business PC”

published 23/10/2007

ProGreat price, features, performance, looks, styling

“DC7700 - Cheap and Cheerful”

published 11/06/2008

ProPlenty of USBs, runs basic applications.

ConsLacks the power for today's games.

In relation to the price of this PC, this is a good product to purchase if you want reasonable performance, at a minimal cost. Not the fastest PC in the world, but functional, and will meet office-based needs. A major plus is the large amount of USB slots. The 2.1 processor, along with the 1GB...
