This is a very fast computer with a large SATA III hard drive for ample data storage. It is in excellent condition and has room for more RAM or other components.

Windows 10 education operating system has been tweaked to address issues that many users dislike... control automatic updates when YOU want them, privacy concerns, bloated programs that nobody wants, etc. The result is a much faster Windows 10 experience with less annoying interruptions and slowdowns. The Linux operating system has all the features and applications that most users need, and it runs much faster than Windows on this computer. This computer also comes with 4 virtual operating systems that you can run simultaneously with Linux (Win10 Lite 32-bit; Windows 10 edu 64-bit; MX Linux 18; Win XP). You have to see this in action to believe it!
