This is for my Dad, all he does is Facebook, surf the web, deviant art, word, excell, and other programs at that level. My Dad is currently using and old pentium i4 @ 2.8Ghz which I dont even think is a dual core, it also only has 512mb of RAM and onboard graphics. I thought this would make a nice cheap upgrade that gives him something more modern, and a nice Bday Gift.
