Summary: I received my 755 within 3-4 days of ordering, opened, unpacked and made all connections easily. I booted up, Windows 7, appeared to be just what I wanted. Turned it off, 15 minutes later, turned it back on, it would not open Windows 7. Tried self repair 3 times and everytime it reported a problem with Windows. Early next morning I took it back to Walmart for a full credit refund with no problems.
Summary: Newegg would strike me as twice as good -- and I love a good refurb deal -- if they wouldn't try to sell computers without specifying what microprocessor is inside.
Pros: If they don't specify which microprocessor is in the computer, how can you determine if this is a waste of money or not? "1.8 GHz dual-core" could be any of a half dozen Intel processors, with varying instruction sets, L2 cache, and video capabilities, all of which vary the value of the computer.
Cons: They do specify that max RAM is 4 GB. Personally, I find 4 GB of ram is insufficient for Win 7. Feels like 8 GB minimum would be decent.
Summary: Been on line 2 days in row. Don't know if the problem was because I am new to Windows 7 or not. Had trouble loading a dvd for photos. We got that fixed then the next day, when I tried to click on my icons on my start page they all led me to a blank page. The agent had to load me a new windows page and then I had to load all of my programs again. I still have a problem with my spider solitare program.
Summary: Unit was easy to setup , the problem was not being computer savy I didn't realize I needed additional programing like Microsoft office home and student, to make it usable for home use. I think this should be better explained for people that are not use to working alot with computers.
Summary: I purchased this computer because I thought it was a great price and I do not like Windows 8. Computer works good.. seems to make noise a lot. My biggest thing with this computer is. the graphics.When I first got it ..everything was fine..about 3 weeks ago all my graphics on my games became distorted and it doesn't matter what I do.. I can't get them right. Items are on top of other things. Faces are down right scary..
Summary: The shipping, lack of order fulfillment on time as promised, and customer service (mostly bots), was terrible. I have had really good experiences with walmart.com's site-to-store shipping, even when fulfilled by secondary providers of goods. This was the worst experience ever- probably not walmart's fault, but the fault of Joy Systems. Let it be known and everyone interested in purchasing a "refurbished" computer from walmart.com, it will not be a complete computer.
Summary: Was leery of the low price. Now I know why. My old computer was a 64 bit. This one is a 32 bit. The windows easy transfer program will not transfer 64 bit files to a 32 bit computer. I bought a portable hard drive and transferred files from old computer to portable hoping I could then pull them up on the new one. Same thing, 64 bit doesn't work on 32 bit computers. The computer does fair for internet, except that internet explorer stops working then restarts.
Summary: The computer was used which us always a risk. It fired an worked well for three days until the hard drive failed. Luckly I had a spare sitting around that I was able to throw into the machine.
