Referb: Lenovo H530 Desktop G3220


Received my Newegg refurbed Lenovo H530 in 3 days of order, on regular shipping(good start). I was attempting to find a desktop that mirrored performance of my laptop (Dell, i-5, 6GB ram, 1TB Hard, windows 7 pro). Took a chance on the refurb Lenovo and...

Found 4 GB ram not quite adequate

Solid Computer for the Price


OVerall, good computer for the price. Decent storage space and runs perfectly fine.

Works great, no problems connecting it to my HD TV. Perfect right out of the box and no problems so far. Windows 8.1 is the best Windows OS I've used in quite some time

Comes installed with some bloatware that was easy to uninstall. Other than that no real complaints

Very nice business computer. Ordered it several months ago for my mother who is a real estate agent. She loves it. It's fast, and I after I used it a couple times, I didn't notice any bottlenecks when using the standard programs (running a couple of...

Fast. Inexpensive. Good value

Nice unit

Lenovo has crippled this unit. As long as you are happy with what is installed. This PC is fine. If you need to upgrade to a dual monitor graphics card, not possible since you can NOT upgrade the Power Supply. Lenovo in their stupid wisdom decided to...

H530 Basic PC


Very impressed with the performance, I am adding another 4 GB ram but this little PC is already impressing me. If you need a PC to get the basic stuff done it works better that expected. Not a gaming rig of course mind you but really gets the job done....

Relatively fast, very inexpensive. Needed a test platform for Windows 10, my old AMD 3200+ wasn't up to it. Got it to Win 8 64 but it just crapped out after that. Needed to be affordable as a temp PC but still capable

Was not Win 8 Pro but that can be dealt with, basically anything below Pro is the pits but hey, I'm not in marketing ; Lame default software, like Maxithon browser? Give me a break, nice try though but just uninstall it and move on. Loaded some kind of...

A good buy


Lenovo always has systems like this. Great processor, huge hard drive, plenty of memory (with room for expansion) at a reasonable price point. So far, my Lenovo systems don't come loaded down with bloatware. This is my third, and all are still going...

Huge hard drive ; Windows 7
