I have been using HCL Beanstalk since 4+ years and I must say I never had any problem with this PC and its working at its best uptill now. No breakdown ever. Totally 100% trouble free and maintenance free PC. Now being a computer geek I'll tell you what makes HCL Beanstalk Rock solid (remember, these features you never get in assembled PC's ): 1. First of all ease of use, small but very functional things like front Headphone jack (so that when you plug headphone, PC speakers auto mute) and front USB ports for on the fly usb device connectivity like mp3 players, USB flash drives etc etc. Optical mouse provided with is also of very high quality (Logitech) and quality of optical mouse depend on the censor chip (not the fancy blue light that can be seen in cheap optical mouse). Keyboard is also one of the best multimedia keyboard with short cut buttton's for functions like "Cut, Copy, Paste" which I feel is very very handy. Pause, play forward button is also give. Apart from these there are 24 more short cut buttons for specific uses. Monitor is 17" Flat with antiglare protection coating on the screen which makes this monitor eye friendly and let you work more on your PC without any strain and headache (wat else do you want from a monitor). Now the most important part : motherboard, HCL uses motherboard from ASUS and MSI, these two companies are worldwide known for making the best motherboard (better than intel original). Reason for using these boards is that these have a wide tolerance range from Heat (since most PC in India are used without AC) fluctuations and dust. Hard disk is of seagate make which we all know is one of the best (next to Hitachi) company in making storage devices. IDE cable (cable that connects Hard disk to motherboard) is of 80 conductor which is the best available. (assembled PC has poor 40 conductor). Even the cooling fan & heatsink on the processor comes from the makers of best cooling devices - Coolermaster. This FAN & heatsink is bigger than the stock fan and its much quite. Does not make tat jet like sound when running at full speed. Lastly something about cabinet. Cabinet plays a big role in cooling system of the PC, yes the metal used in making the cabinet is of such type that it absorbs the heat from inside. Cheap cabinets used in assembled PC's does not do this at all.
