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

Lucky Happy Joy Machine


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

great buy


re-installed win 7 - 64 bit with the activation key came with. upgraded to 4G each machine, 2+2 and 1+1+1+1 added a card reader added cheap video cards - mainly for the kids to surf web and word processing, watch YouTube etc. Oh, SSD also made this...

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

proprietary screws for adding extra hard drive and optical drive etc ; 3G memory - 2+1 ; reverse direction of motherboard that decent ( extra space required) video card has to use the 2nd slot - slower speed

ATI Radeon 7500 64mb PCI card


The computer was very clean inside and out. Started up really fast and from start to finish, start up only took me 15 minutes. Within an hour I had all updates and programs I use installed. The computer feels like its brand new; both how it runs and...

None that I can spot so far

Really small!


I was looking for as small of a PC as I could find without breaking the bank. A quick hd and memory upgrade and it's a perfect garage PC.

Ridiculously small but still has optical drive. Has holes for mounting on TV etc. Will take 8GB [2x4gb] memory, but it uses 200pin DDR2 SODIMM's, so memory is getting back to expensive. Will take 5300 or 6400 [mine came with 1 of each] External power...

Description is a bit short on details, but acceptable. The memory is old enough that it is starting to get expensive or harder to find, so if you are intending to upgrade do it sooner rather than later. The small form factor means you have to...
