Features of this system include the following.
There are a number of relatively cheap upgrades that one should consider. Spending a little more can make this cheap computer system a lot better.
One idea is to upgrade the OS to Vista Business for just $49 (very cheap compared to the normal $99.) If you still like XP, you can get Windows XP Professional pre-installed and a disc to upgrade to Vista Business at your leisure. This is also just $49, which is quite a deal.
If you want more storage space, there are really cheap deals on larger capacity hard drives. Upgrade to 250GB for just $10, or 320GB for just $18.
The included 19" monitor is a pretty decent size monitor, but if your motto is "bigger is better," it is only $60 to upgrade to the 22" E2209W Widescreen Flat Panel monitor.
