Great Value

User Review  - mesaman61 - Overstock.com

This is a must have manual for operating Windows 7. What makes this a great value is the price along with the fact i bought it on a $1.00 for all shipping. It would have cost me much more to drive to a computer store in gasoline. Read full review
