3/19/2011 6:52:53 PM This computer is the greatest computer that i have ever used! Well I have used an Alienware, and is sexy, but this has overall good proformance for what i use it for. The only thing i do not like is that with it being a company made PC is that I cannot overclock the I7 CPU to the famous 4ghz that everyone talks about. I know she has it in her.. but I cannot unlock it unless i get a new MOBO (I think).. But it overall is a great buy!

7/28/2010 12:22:36 PM I've only had it a couple days. So far, it's running well, except for slow reaction and hangups on my wireless mouse when watching streaming videos or playing on-line games. I haven't had time to reinstall the mouse's driver disk, but JUST finished defragging the C drive, hoping it will resolve the problem. The same goes for the PC Tune-up. This is the only issue I'm not happy with yet...but I'm sure it can be fixed.

9/26/2017 2:49:46 PM was a great computer until it and my wifes laptop got hacked at the same time. Geez Squad could not fix it completely, MICRA did a good job of fixing more, but it is not nearly as gast as it used to be. Hoping your software can help. I am a journalist and sometimes large groups of people aren't real happy with what I write about and it's very likely that it was "them" who got into my computers.
