Looks good to me

Only concern is the memory slots 2 DIMM. Usually it's 4 slots, you have 2x2GB so 4GB RAM. that will be good for now, but if you want to upgrade your RAM later, 2x4GB RAM is still expensive.

You will be happy with the performance you get with 4GB.

The Windows 7 upgrade is the cherry on top

If it is a 32bit processor, then nothing you can do will make it a 64bit processor...

Antism... You can lead a horse to water, but that doesn't make it a duck!

reece

In order to find out if its capable go to grc.com/securable and dl the free app and run it. If it is 64bit you are going to need the 4 gigs orf ram.

Btw The most important you can do is to back up while the system is new and is most efficient.
