I haven't heard of it neither, but then I don't know everything that happens. I'll assume it's a house brand, that Staples carries or budget line they carry. Since, its not a known or popular, follow good sense and just let it go. Of course, if a Staples item, they'll usually back it up(warranty, read fine print). You can check eMachines and other vendors/ or online for bargains, beware of some refurb pricing, but the systems are good just usually the warranty is less. Besy Buy has a eMachine system for $399 after rebates/sale, etc. if in your area but they do have online sales as well. Check http://www.newegg.com for online pricing and any other vendor. Remember, cheap is cheap, thus Wal-Mart may have a system too.
I am in the hunt for a new "budget" computer for my sister. Price range $500. She does not need a high-end computer. She will not be a gamer nor will she do digital video editing. At most, she will use digital photo-editing software. She surfs the net, uses email, and generally plays with her computer.
I have been shopping for solid systems at bargain prices. The best prices for the product, thus far, seem like Dell Dimensions 3000 and/or 4700's, although there are no current deals that I can afford at Dell.
Recently I discovered a desktop package at Staples ON SALE this week for $499.
It includes the following:
