Summary: I really liked this computer. I got this because my even older computer broke, and I wasn't yet ready to get a deluxe computer. So, I got this and also ordered a bunch of stuff to extend its life like additional RAM, wireless card, SSD drive so it had two drives, SATA cable, and a card so I could hook up a second monitor to it. After I reconfigured this computer, it was great for a basic computer.
Summary: I purchased an HP factory refurbished HP 500-214 desktop from walmart.com a few months ago and was so impressed I decided to get this Joy Systems refurbished HP DC5700 for my dad next. I had been looking for a replacement for his old XP pc and this was more than $100 cheaper than the first computer I bought and sounded like a great deal.
Summary: At first would say NO WAY - bad choice. BUT after some calls and a representatives help got my windows approved. Before was saying not registered and unlawful copy and etc. BUT he helped me get the correct numbers put in and all is well now. Was easy as far as matching cords to hook up. I was very pleased to be able to set it up without having to get help from the younger generation.
