AM not a fan of AMD honestly.. I have been pleased with Pentium and I don't know much about AMD. Bu keep in mind this is the Pentium D.
And also, I have several friends that have AMD processor and they don't really like them. So I don't think I'll ever have a high opinion on the AMD processors.
So, trying to convice on NOT going with Pentium is kind of pointless
But what do you think of the computer it's self?
