Personally I would have gone for the intel processor such as the i3, as I think the performance is way better. ALso has all that preloaded bloatware you have to uninstall. I personally only buy PCs that come with the full operating system disk. Toshiba though are a good brand, but it is a low spec PC. There was a nice one DSE were selling for about 1100 that looked very nice for the price.

I didnt realise I was being negative! Smile 

And as i mentioned before, for the price, it has the features expected on a sub $1000 model. It's by no means a gaming powerhouse, and at the same time, it's not a dud. It's a good priced model with specs suitable for daily general usage, emails, surfing, ms word, excel etc.

Also, welcome to GZ, don't forget to post a hello in the Intros section with a quick bio :-)
