Summary: 2GB of memory will be fine for some users, multitasking/multiple open programs may require an upgrade. A PCI Express graphics card will be a nice upgrade for this machine and they are dirt cheap.
Pros: Seems to be a good platform for a user that uses it mainly for email office, etc. and doesn't need a lot of computer power. Other than the issue below it runs fine without any problems or errors.
Cons: After several hours of Windows errors and then a fresh install of the operating system the problem showed itself. Bad HDD out of the box. I don't know where the problem occurred, could have been at the place of refurbishment and wasn't caught or damage in shipping. The errors are so bad I can't even back up the drive to install on a replacement and the Windows install program is located on it. I will contact the manufacturer and Newegg on Monday since this is Sunday a...
Summary: I was kind of nervous about getting a refurbished product but it comes wrapped like new and works like a charm. It is perfect for email and surfing the web. I just had to load adobe and java (which are both free anyway) and it was good to go. The only thing I didn't realize was it didn't have an SD card reader but then I went to walmart.com and found a 99 cent gadget that plugs into the flash drive thing that reads the cards from my camera so that fixes that.
Summary: Overall this has satisfied our need to upgrade to Windows 7 economically. I am installing new hard drives in all units. Most existing hard drives are about 6 years old.
Pros: Clean inside, shrink wrapped, as advertised, small form factor size, price, fast delivery
Cons: Has only 2GB of memory. Would have preferred 4GB for a 64 bit PC. Both slots are filled so to upgrade to 4GB both memory cards must be replaced. Side panel to access components frozen shut on 2 of the 10 units we ordered. Was able to free up one. The other may have to be returned.
Summary: I had to replace my old computer with XP with a newer version and didn't have a lot of money to spend and this one fit the bill. More speed and more memory and by using the built in Windows Easy Transfer it was simple to transfer all my programs and files from my old computer. Just a little scuffing on the case but otherwise it looks great. I only use it at home for surfing and doing research for my scale modeling hobby so it fits my needs perfectly.
