Lmao! What will they think of next; the aol optmized tv? Palm pilot? How about the aol optimized idiot that follows you around and annoys you to hell until you sign up and if you cancel, you get to play 20…. million questions, or wait until your ears start bleeding from crappy persuastion techniques. Man I HATE aol.

Systemax AOL Intel Celeron 2.0GHz / Microsoft Windows XP Home / 17-inch CRT / 256MB DDR / 40GB HDD / CD-ROM / Lexmark Ink Jet Printer / 1 Year Warranty / Desktop PC

Not worth it, people sell dell dimension 3000’s for $300. Plus pay for aol for 12 months? Not happenin. But ya know the computer illiterate people will jump on this so it doesnt matter what we think.

actually its a pretty nice computer for the basic home user who just wants to send some pictures to his/her loved one. Id actually buy one of these for my sister, so then should could stop messing up my parents computer. This is no gamming machine, obviously, but for the simple home user that just wants to go online, check some mail, and simple lilttle things its great. The one year AOL service agreement i dont like though.

But why not just take the money that you would end up spending on AOL ($286 for a year) Divide that by half for another ISP ($143) and add that to the $300 cost of the AOL PC:

Then Spend that $443 on a Much better PC, and you don’t have to deal with AOL, especially with a PC riddled with their software I’m sure you can’t remove from it…

just my .02

Ok so I looked at this at work

me and the 2 people working with me were dying of laughter

I couldnt breath and started tearing up…one of the guys had to go in a corner and just crouch down cause he couldnt take it


the part where they have an arrow pointing to the top of the printer(just the flap thing) was the funniest…when we saw that omg

I work in a computer lab….so that might add to us finding it so funny…..and all the people in the lab staring at us haha

Anyone remember the AOL Superbowl commercials last year? They’re probably going to put AOL optimized on it and make the computer super speedy.

Yeah, right.
