4/2/2014 11:06:58 AM Microsoft products have been, overall, a BID disappointment. I can't prove it but I suspect that they sabotage their own customers systems, covertly. When I decide to upgrade my computer system, it will most definitely not include anything that is related to Microsoft. Good luck to Bill and Melinda Gates with their charity. Nice tax haven for them and their family.

1/22/2011 8:52:36 PM Older computer, about 8 years old, can't afford new one at this time, looking just to keep it running as fast and efficiently as I can for now until I'm able to afford to upgrade to a better one.

3/15/2012 8:25:29 PM It has always been slow. A couple of months ago it failed to boot up and I used the discs that came with it to reinstall the operating system. It works but is still very slow and sometime I just have to restart it to get it to run betterr.

6/22/2010 2:28:45 PM Seem to working fine now and then - ATUOMATIC UPDATES KEEPS ADDING TO THE C-DRIVE LOAD - I need to get bigger hard drives, and a dvd/cd rom burner and maybe some more ram memory. I wonder if I could get a nice Solid-State drive to replace the 30GB Primary! I did get a secondary hard drive bay with 40 GB but partitioned it to only use the 30GB in case I needed to convert back. I never had a writable optical drive an really want one! The following was the system, original hard and optical drives: System Type: Latitude C840 Service Tag: CF20231 Ship Date: 7/5/2003 Dell IBU: Americas 1 48CVX Assembly, CARRIER..., Hard Drive, LONSDALE/LAVACA... 1 W0710 Hard Drive, 30 GB, I, 9.5 Multi Media, 4.2 K, Fujitsu, V 40 1 9X524 Assembly, Digital Video Disk Drive, 8X, Hitachi LG Data Storage, Side, V2 1 8U082 Card Wireless, Mini PCI, Internal, Agere Systems, 2.4GHz
