    GREAT!
    I am glad to hear that it is working well for you!
    I am certain that you will have fun filling up that terabyte worth of space (and will want to get an external hard drive (with even more space) to fill up as well ). ;)

    Great to see you back in business. New C0mputer is a gas. I ue Norton 360, and CCleaner, to keep mine tuned up. I will probably be building a new computer in 6 months. Waiting for higher core speeds on the 8 core processors. They are maxing at 5 Ghz now. I prefer AMD, as I do primarily graphics, and AMD is Made in the U.S.A.!! I hope to make a Laptop next year. :)

    Ahh! AMD APU = Great Graphics capability. I stopped with Intel, as I went through 3 Intel processors for ever AMD processor. I just get more life out of AMD processors, and "Bang for the buck". I believe you will be very happy with this machine. What's in the Video section, as far as Video on board graphics, or is this a P.C.? For some reason I am thinking it is a laptop, but it could be a tower? What do you have? I may be able to give you some suggestions. (I build these things) :)

    P.M. me the Model number. I am curious. I really like Acer products. As they are a manufacturer of hardware, you know you aren't getting some re-badged pile of junk. I have a Nokia Lumina 520 that I got for $57 bucks 2 months ago at Walmart, it is a Windows 8 phone. I cannot believe I was able to get so much phone for so little. I added a Micro 32G SD Card, so I can take movies and pictures without worrying about space. The WiFi works excellently, as does the rest of the phone. it is so intuitive.! :)
