This is a great computer and monitor at a great price. The set up was fast and easy, but I did find we needed to NOT use the quick install for the operating system. We did read each step of the install, and changed anything that was set to automatically send information to microsoft. Other than that, this computer is great, it runs great, and the display is great. It runs well, and is very quiet while running. The large screen is much easier to see than any laptop we have had. The tower is a full sized tower and sits on the floor. With just the monitor, keyboard and mouse on the desk, it leaves a lot of needed space available. Once the computer was set up, it ran everything we needed it to run, with the programs that were already installed. We are still fine tuning and tweeking it, but that is just due to personal preference. This is truly an awesome computer and I will be purchasing another one.
