Good deal

 

These refurbished computers are a great deal when you consider the high costs of windows 7 pro.

I was thinking about building a new budget office machine to save some money. After all the components added up the price was reasonable. However, when it came time to purchase operating system, it was too expensive. This machine comes with a 139.00...

a little banged up but who cares. No one sees it

Hoped to give this to my children for Christmas however I had to send it back because it wasn't what I ordered. Still waiting to find out when they will send the 160 gb computer I paid for. As for the kids, I guess I'll have to give them this present...

I purchased eight of these for a small school computer lab as replacements for almost ten year old computers. They fit the need perfectly for simple Microsoft Office training and online based programs ; The size was also perfect for the computer lab setup

None so far

Beware

 

A refurb seemed like a good idea at the time. It's not worth it.

Worked pretty well at first. Opened the case to find mismatched RAM but no real issues

BSOD 36 days after purchase. Exchange period: 30 days. Good times.. Stuck in a never ending loop trying to fix/reinstall Win7

HP Compaq dc5800(KA429UT)

 

I got 6 machines, and they all work. 4 Dimm slots for memory upgrade, 2 machines got 160GB HDD instead of 80GB

32bit Window XP on a 64bit processor with mobo supports up to 8GB RAM doesnt make much sense. All machines are smelly, somewhat dusty, and got scratches

Consumer review by:

bullet-proof

 

pci express slots are nice

Excellent reliability, we have tons of these at the office and not one failure. Screwless chassis is great. Edges are rounded/folded so you don't cut yourself. HP Business support

custom sized power supply, but none of failed so its not really a con. HP overnights you a replacement anyway
