Summary: Fortunately for me, unlike the first reviewer, my experience with this box has been great. Windows 7 Pro came up as expected and the product key on the case worked for me,. It's very quick, a lot quicker than I expected, and quiet.
Pros: Very small, performs well, no problems. I purchased this machine for $219.99 on 10/15/2015, a pretty good price. 5 stars.
Cons: DVD is read only, no built in WiFi. The price on 1/25/2016 is $479.95 - not so good and I wouldn't buy it at that price. 2 stars due to price increase
Summary: This computer is a "small footprint" system that works great. The size of the computer saves lots of space on my desk and is packed with speed and power. I have tons of storage on the 1TB drive but I also added a 250 GB Solid State Drive for the operating system and programs.
Pros: It works great for my needs using microsoft programs. Writing contracts etc. I do download photos but other than advertising I do very little graphic work. Not sure how it is for gaming and other uses for my business it is great.
Cons: No problems or cons on this one works for what I need.
Summary: This is the first Dell Computer I've had & so far everything has been great. I am not a computer whiz but I was able to get it set-up. I've only had it for a week but I am sure I will learn more about it as time goes by.

Summary: This i5 with 8GB RAM and 1TB hard drive works perfectly. I've had no problems setting it up as my new desktop computer. It runs fast and all my plug and play devices worked great from the start. Have only had it a short time, but based on my initial impression, I recommend it.
Pros: My days of knowing every processor upgrade and all the other best in class components are long past. But I feel like this was a good deal for an I5 for basic web browsing, email and Word. Decent sized hard drive - 500 gb.
Summary: As per the advertised description of the computer, it was to come with a DVD-ROM drive. My refurbished Dell computer came with a DVD-RW drive which was a nice added plus. The computer has been working flawlessly and I also upgraded to Windows 10 with no apparent problems.
Pros: The refurbished computer was amazing clean inside and out. No dust in fans, heat sink or cabinet. It came with Windows 7 Pro and some free trial software. It has plenty of USB ports on the front and back of the cabinet.
Cons: One tiny scratch on cabinet that I covered up with a black permanent marker.
