Refurbished PowerColer AXR7 250

 

Running Win7, only software added that wasn't out of the box is MS Office.

Cheap

We bought three of these as light-duty work spaces. Within the first week one started having a gpu issue that would cause extreme tearing and then cause the machine to be non-responsive. I was about to go out and buy a video card, but now a second one...

Nice product for price

 

Strip out all the HP add on software installation and add 4GB Ram P/N M378B5173QH0-CK0 and you will have yourself a nice working machine for general office use.

Workstation works just fine, it is perfect for an office computer running MS Office, You would not want to run any intensive products on this but I am sure they did not intend this for that at this price

None, It is what it is a basic office workstation

Not bad!

 

This is a good business workstation. There is no CPU fan, only a heatsink, with cooling provided by a 120mm exhaust fan in the rear of the case. It came with a single 4-gig stick of RAM, so I put another 4-gig stick in the other slot. Big improvement....

Cheap price, small footprint, Windows 7 Pro 64-bit, very quiet

Needs a bit more "umph", CPU is merely adequate

Satisfied

 

I like this computer very much for basic office use of internet, email and office suite duties. The HP Client Suite software can cause changes to settings without being aware of it. It did to me with the bio-metrics log in and being locked out of...

Price, Dual OS, Quad core, 4GB RAM, Dual monitor capability

Cheap Computer

 

Great computer but limited adaptability.

This computer suits the needs of the average computer user that is doing web browsing, word processing, etc

This computer would pick up the fact that I had 8GB of RAM installed but would only allow 3.75GB in Windows. I used the recovery disc to try 7 and 8.1 and I installed my own Windows 7 Pro 64-bit and none made a difference. I also tried to update the...

Good basic business machine

 

If you are looking for a good business-class machine with Windows 7 64bit, here it is!

The price! Also, came with Windows 7 installed and optional upgrade to Windows 8.1. That was an unexpected bonus as my customer cannot go to Win 8.1 yet because of software requirements they run. Everything pretty much ran as expected

The only con I found is that it only has 4GB RAM which is clearly stated in description. If you get this pay the extra few bucks to get another 4Gigs

Quiet little pseudo-server

 

Needed a small-ish, quiet desktop to act as a network server. Added a 2-port GB eithernet card, and put a Linux variant on it. Installed without issue and with all hardware working. Got it on a Shell Shocker deal - can't beat the price plus warranty....

Three year, on-site warranty ; Very quiet (not HTPC silent, but fine for a quiet office / bedroom) ; Decent keyboard included (it's to be a server, but it's nice to have a good spare keyboard around anyway. Kinda mushy keys, but typing was fine) ;...

Not a powerhouse - it's for a business user doing office tasks, not gaming or video editing ; No HDMI out (but I knew that, and didn't need one) ; Cheap-feeling wired mouse (it's a server, so I could care less) ; Shared RAM for video (512M dedicated,...
