Ref.Computer

 

Except for the techs sloppy work in putting the computer back together everything seems fine. Interesting to note that it has two key codes. One for Vista, and another for "Win 7 for refurbished computers."

Nice price for it's speed

Screws missing on side panel. Back plate missing, Hard-drive loose in case rattling around

Good Basic Office Desktop

 

I had 5 aging XP machines (4 in our office, and 1 with my parents). This option allowed me to change all of them out with a minimum of fuss and expense. The one question I did have was answered quickly by the AST tech support.

Basic Windows 7 install. No unwanted add-ons. Slim case. Adequate memory and hard drive

Didn't have any

For email and web browsing

 

Refurb is by a company called AST which is mentioned. Also not mentioned is their cheap keyboard and mouse which is included in the package.

Stock Windows 7 installed with none of the usual HP bloatware. Slim case

DVD drive is read only. Small hard drive
