At A Glance

Inexpensive system contains low-end components that delivered lackluster performance.

This affordable system supplies plenty of power for the money; its CRT monitor keeps the price down.

Packaged with budget components and a CRT, this is among the least expensive systems you'll find; but it's extremely slow.
