Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: DELL OPTIPLEX GX520 POWERFUL PENTIUM HT 2.8, 2 GB DDR2, 250 GB SATA HDD, 256 MB GRAPHIC, DVD , Keyboard & Mouse, Internet Ready, Windows XP
Completely as described and excellent value for money. Minor gripes that give only 4 stars?: No IEC mains lead provided and the aincent Dell mouse was full of fluff and barely worked, but a quick visit to the pound shop sorted these things out (add them to your order if you buy one). SATA cable had worked loose in the post (where's the Dell original packaging?) but quickly plugged back in and all working fine as my daughetrs first computer for accessing the internet on our home network. Yes there was pre-installed software, but deleted it all to leave the pre-installed Windows XP then added Student and Teacher MS-Office. Auto-update is turned off and be prepared to leave the machine running for an afternoon connected to the internet - perhaps 150 odd update downloads needed and a few re-boots along the way, but that's only to be expected since the installed Windows XP was virginal and completely un-updated. You'll want an "unlimited" broadband package to be doing this - several gigabytes of download required.
