NewsFactor Magazine reviews Compaq Presario SR1710NX desktop computer, rated the computer 3.5 out of 5, and concluded that for an entry-level PC, the Presario SR1710NX has surprising performance potential. It’s a bit sluggish out of the box, but some basic tweaking, such as a memory upgrade, can turn this model into a satisfying performer. For the price, this Presario is a winner. It’s a good choice as a secondary or entry-level PC that doesn’t have to handle top-of-the-line gaming and video-editing tasks.
Pros: Fast processor and large storage capacity; runs cool and quiet; lots of upgrade potential.
Cons: Too little installed memory; optical drive does not write to DVD; so-so graphics.
