One of the most disappointing experiences with a computer I have had


I am still trying to get the computer running well enough to give it a test

This is a refurbished computer but what I would expect is that someone would at least make sure that none of the USB ports were dead and that the computer would be able to run Windows Updates without getting the Blue Screen of Death. To be fair, I sat...

Works as described.


I was able to upgrade from Win 7 to Win 10 with little trouble and it dual boots my Linux (Kubuntu 15.10) with no problems.

Only 4 SATA connectors on the motherboard.

Eggcellent value


Would easily buy this again.

This computer was so clean inside and out that it's hard to tell this was even a refurb at all. There was a small amount of dust stuck on a case fan and otherwise it was absolutely spotless. The OS install was bloat-free. I threw in a medium-end...

The motherboard or audio drivers has a flaw where the front headphone ports do not function if the speaker output in the back is connected, but this is a pretty small gripe compared to how well the rest of the computer works.

Reliable and affordable computer for graphic design


This is a very good computer that is affordable for graphic designers. I recommend increasing the RAM by 4 GB to get the speed you'll want to get the job done.

Good machine, for a home system. I have a feeling that these should be able to last awhile without any hardware problems.

That woudl actually be a four core processor. i7 doesn't even come in oct. Good machine, but for home users. More of an awesome media and gaming rig than for business use.

This computer is a beast. 8 core processor, 16GB RAM, 2TB hard drive. Excellent graphics card. My only issue that I have with this computer, is that the fan kicks on a lot and is very noisy. Going to look at the BIOS and see if I can turn it down.

Core i7-2600 3.4 GHz, 16GB RAM, 160GB SSD, Win7 64 bit. Paid about $1,800. Loads every program in about 1 second. Outlook maybe 5 seconds. Running multiple VMs for website development no sweat. I love it.
