ROYAL PALM BEACH, FLORIDA -- I would not recommend this computer. We upgraded & replaced an older model E-Machine with this one. At least the older model was quiet. This model is beyond noisy. When on, it sounds like a very loud wind tunnel which is not only distracting but annoying. In my opinion, they went backwards with this model. I gave up a very quiet computer for a fraction more speed. Not a great trade-off.
