rate: 100A perfectly usable PC for light use
I upgraded it to win10 for free by downloading the “media creation tool”. Media creation tool is created by Microsoft to allow you to upgrade your old win operating system to win 10. But you will need at least 4gb of ram to run win 10. So remember to buy extra ram under options. 8gb would be better.
The company is kind enough to give me a 4gb ram instead of 2 2gb ram, at my request. I needed the ram to be 4gb per stick as I have another spare 4gb ram. There are a total of 4 ram slots on the motherboard.
This does not have a hdmi output. But has a vga output. Now, don’t go buying hdmi to vga cables. Vga signal cannot be converted into hdmi signal. But hdmi can be converted into vga signal. So your output monitor must come with vga input.
This does not come with Wi-Fi. So if you need one, buy their Wi-Fi usb receiver. But I prefer lan cable so i did not buy the Wi-Fi receiver.
This does not come with keyboard and mouse. But you can easily buy a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse set for about $20. I got mine from lazada.
I have tried surfing the net, watch YouTube and Netflix on this PC. No issues. I probably won’t upgrade the hdd to a ssd.
If you just need a PC to run very basic applications like web browsers, this PC is good enough. My kid asked me why I can’t surf the net using my phone. Well, I am just an old guy. I can’t really see stuff on phone already. So take care of your eyes by using a big screen instead of a phone size screen.
Best of luck to you!
