Great refurbished machine

R R., Newegg
20 December 2015
  • Summary: Great computer but requires some computer experience to get it ready for use. Not a plug-in and go purchase for any basic consumer.
  • Pros: i7 is fast. Very quiet on the desk. USB's are conveniently placed. Slim case works well on the desk. Shipped and delivered within 3 days. Needed minimal updates so it must have a recent image installed. Nice keyboard and mouse provided.
  • Cons: It came with a corrupt video driver. Thanks to a knowledgeable friend he downloaded the Intel Drive Update Utility and solved the problem with an updated driver. Needed Flash and Shockwave download in order to get audio on internet videos.

You could do much worse....

N/A, Newegg
8 December 2015
  • Summary: HP's business-grade PC's and laptops are generally very solid products. I'd rather have one of these, even 3 or 4 years old, than a brand-new cheapie sold at your favorite big-box store.
  • Pros: Very clean inside & out, well packaged, brand-new hard drive with lots of storage capacity. (2 TB) 8gb of ram, good performance for the $$.
  • Cons: Missing several drivers, which is a minor annoyance but easily resolved. These machines use a proprietary power supply, which isn't really a con, just something to be aware of.

Good system

N/A, Newegg
29 November 2015
  • Summary: I purchased this to donate to a non-profit that needed an extra PC for internet and simple word processing. This should meet their needs very well at a good price. Solid system with a few more years left in it. This would be great for kids or other people who do not need a lot of power.
  • Pros: Comes with a new copy of Windows 7 Pro that is on the hard drive. You have to enter the activation code from the official sticker on the side of the PC to install it. The specs are correct 4 GB DDR2, 250 Sata HD. Everything is working. Not the fastest system, but good for internet or simple PC fu...
  • Cons: Came with a few pre installed programs, which I had to remove, A trial anti virus (bull guard) and a version of word perfect. NOt a big deal, but not needed.

Not bad, but could have been better

N/A, Newegg
9 November 2015
  • Summary: In summary, the question is, would I buy this computer again?
  • Pros: The unit was spotless inside. To look at the interior you would think it was a new unit.
  • Cons: The outside definitely told a different story.

  • Pros: 1. The package is low profile thus requiring less desk space
  • Cons: 1. not much expansion slots-low profile

JM, Newegg
27 March 2013
  • Summary: Sad to see that these are now OOS. Why would I want to pay more for an 8300 when its essentially the same machine?
  • Pros: Still a great office PC with a easily fixed flaw
  • Cons: Follow up to my previous review
