Title: Happy Purchaser
Posted19 July 2012
Yes, I would recommend this product
I am very happy with my purchase. I must admit that I did buy my system during a sales promotion so I bought a higher spec system than I would have otherwise for Home use. Also the Microsoft $15 upgrade offer to Windows 8 when it is released swayed me to buy now rather than wait. I bought the system with the 3rd Gen i7 processor, 8GB memory and 2TB HDD so I will never have to upgrade this system. I like how quickly this system boots up. I also like the simple sleek look of the cabinet. It has a slide down panel below the CD drive bays which normally hides the USB ports and media card reader. One comment about the cabinet. The size currently given on the web site is wrong. It should be H=360mm, W=175mm and D=445mm.
I also like the P2412H LCD monitor. It has a nice display, a height adjustable stand and nice functional controls.
DELL does offer OnLine space for data backup. This is probably useful for when people are travelling. But I decided to do my own automated regular Backups to an external HDD via one of the USB3 ports. These days this is an easy menu driven process provided by the OS. I also used the same external HDD to transfer my data from my old Vista system. Initially I did get a bit confused by the Microsoft instructions but in the end it all went very smoothly.
The DELL OnLine ordering process also went very smoothly and I did not require any operator assistance. It also lets you track the status of the order
Pros:general home use
