Skip it. Get a PC with the Intel Sandy Bridge processor. They have 4 digits after i3, i5 and i7. The one you listed are first generation.

Why does Dell always list this as a feature? It's something you can download for free if you want it.


Infected with Security Software McAfee Scareware, 24-Months
Fixed

My Dell came with a 30-day McAfee trial, and it constantly badgered me to not only buy it, but to upgrade to more and more shit. I mean, I don't need to pay McAfee $60 a year to tell me that that guy spamming me isn't really a Nigerian Prince.
