Summary: Hardware can meet the need, but there are many viruses and Trojans in the pre-installed software, and it affected seriously the speed and the safety. It was so terrible that I had to reinstall the system from the very beginning. I prefer to have a bare system rather than Softwares with many viruses.
Summary: I just received this computer and right off the bat the computer won't boot. It isn't detecting the hard drive. I opened the case and all the cables are connected. I attempted to contact the company that does the refurbishing and they don't have any office hours on the weekend. So since I received my computer later in the evening on a Friday, I won't hear back until Monday sometime most likely.
Summary: Unit shut down shortly after booting. Upon opening the unit I found a metal expansion port cover lying on the main board shorting it out. Returned to local store and purchased a new computer with Windows 8.1 which is not compatible with my needs.
