Very happy


Unbelievably clean for a refurb, other than a couple of very small dings in the case it could be mistaken for new ; Basic program load, no bloatware or crapware on the machine

No wireless card, It took a little extra time to legitimize the Windows 7 since I had to get the wireless running first. Poor Poor Me

UPDATE: Windows 10 Technical Preview installs and runs really well. Copy of Windows 7 that came with machine can't seem to be transferred, but is able to be backed-up to an external drive and restored if a rollback to Windows 7 is desired later....

The more I evaluate it, the more I like it

None, for home and school use, or hobby-ing around

Came with a new keyboard and mouse. Optical drive works well. Plenty of USB connectors. Am wondering if this box will run Windows 10. Waiting for a presently more mature version of Windows 10 before I try it, and would install 4 GB of ram if I pulled...

CPU cabinet is about the size of a phone book. Priced about the same as a full copy of Win 7 alone (Which MS won't sell anymore). This machine arrived upgraded from Vista, and is fully Win 7 capable. Arrived in almost-new condition. Performs well. This...

None, really. Not a lot of room for expansion, if you want that sort of thing. Small, but fair-sized hard drive for this class of machine

Couldn't be happier with the pc and what I paid for it.

Surprisingly fast! ESRI's ArcGIS Desktop software is not a lightweight package and this pc doesn't have any trouble running it whatsoever. This is astounding IMO for a pc that's a little over $100. One caveat, I haven't tried any of the ArcGIS 3d...

None that I can think of

Great Buy


Great price, solid specs. I ordered 3 of these to outfit a new office. All items were in great shape for refurbished product. Also, they came in boxes sized to the computers, so they were easy to transport

nice tower with plenty of air flow ; 3.16 Ghz - Win 7 WEI is 6.6 ; 2 PCI-x slot for video card expansion ; 350+ W power supply ; can upgrade to 16G memory if you prefer ; Quiet
