Summary: Many of these HP Refurbished Business models are sturdy, reliable, relatively fast for office work and thus are excellent deals when they come with Windows 7.
Pros: This is a first class Intel Corei5 system housed in HP's microtower case, which is much higher quality than the current HP 400 G1 computers, whose main advantage is USB 3.0, which the Elite 8200 does not have.
Summary: purchased as an update to my older hp media center system. Put the tuner card into the 8200 and the graphic card (cheap), installed a Samsung 250gb ssd as boot drive and kept 2tb drive for storage. Also installed another 5 tb drive internally (4 sata mother board ports ONLY).
Pros: Newer processor, space to work add, Window 7 pro, 8 gb ram.
Summary: Don't plan on any internal upgrades (graphics card for example, or disk). The power supply is not up to supplying additional power. The system is a great value for the money spent, especially since you can upgrade to Windows 10 for free. It runs quite fast enough.
Pros: Upgradable to Windows 10; works as advertised; reasonably quiet; boots like a new machine; bare bones (as advertised), but very functional; runs Windows 10 flawlessly; good RAM and disk space; awesome price!
Cons: Flimsy mouse and keyboard, but adequately functional.
