Great kid PC


This is obviously not a high-end machine, but for $100 you can't go too wrong as a beginner machine for children or older people that don't demand lots of resources.

Inexpensive, works fine for my kids. Added some RAM and an old GPU and it works fine for my young kids' gaming needs

Dell proprietary parts make it tricky to upgrade somethings. You'll need a different power supply for any additional power needs

This PC is a NewEgg Plus. No problems whats ever and it is screaming fast for a dual core. I recommend it to anyone looking for a bargain fast PC

None so far

Decent Systems


I bought 5 of these machines for a project. Three of them are in GREAT shape. A fourth has some fairly interesting gashes down one side, and the fifth case...well someone gave it a _beat_down_. That case has some issues and is the only reason for...

Cheap price. Full computer systems. Good performance

The USB keyboards are _junk_ and the USB mice are worse. These are TERRIBLE so I am really glad that I have a KVM and adapters (there are no PS/2 ports) ; The PCI express video card in the picture is just a stump to provide DVI. The real video card is...

Best DEAL going!


If this deal doesn't suite you, maybe you should spend 4 times the price for a new one with the "slower" windows 7 installed?

Anyone complaining about this package has got to be kidding!! This is one of the best deals going even without the keyboard and mouse! Do you know what a XP Pro disc alone cost ; This package is a great secondary or Primary PC for your home. I have 2...

Absolutly NONE

Cheap keyboard


Good unit for upgrade. Great deal

Cheapest keyboard ever seen. 23 0f 100 keys didnt work. so if ordering order a keyboard seperate, because to have it replaced you have to send whole unit back and have new one sent which takes 7-11 days

Excellent PC


I've given up purchasing the new systems, and paying the price for new technology, only to be outdated in a year. The system came to me Newegg fast, and worked perfectly. The restore disk is a big plus for me. I only hope I don't lose it before I need...

In my opinion there are non. I saved a lot of money, how can I write anything other than "Thanks Newegg

Good buy, but beware!


All in all, a good buy and may get another refurbished system, but won't assume it comes with a warranty even if it says so. Newegg was willing to take it back, but I would have to pay for shipping. Gonna keep it though cause its fine now. Sad though,...

Does what it should. Come with a OS reinstall disk, which in my opinion, is something every PC should come with

Had a slight issue using older speakers (speakers work on other devices including another PC). The sound was not coming out right. For whatever reason (I really don't know why it would matter, speaker plug is a speaker plug), newer speakers solved the...

Solid Computer


Worked out of the box, graphics decent for price. Spent an hour updating and has run like a champ since

None so far, what do you really expect for $179 anyway

Just what I needed...


I'm currently taking a series of IT certification classes and none of my older computers were up to running the new Windows Server 2008 R2 OS. I needed a 64-bit system and am on a very tight budget (who isn't these days). I had been watching the...

Great value for the price. I had no trouble setting up & configuring it for my needs. Performance is very good for a several year old system. I added another two Gigs of RAM and now it will run 1080p video smoothly with the built in NVIDIA graphics...

This is not a con for me really, but I feel I should mention it. The inexpensive, alright I'll say it, the cheap keyboard that came with it was defective out of the box. I'm not docking it an egg because I didn't order this for the keyboard. The system...

System was indistinguishable from brand new. Not a scratch nor a speck of dust inside and out. Everything operates perfectly. Don't be afraid to purchase this refurbished PC

None that I can see
