Summary: This machine works fine, the only issues are my own fault for not realizing it does not come with the pre-installed programs you normally get with a "new" computer. By the time you buy new programs compatible with Windows 7, your cost is closer to buying a new machine. if you already have all the programs you need, then this is a very good buy.

Summary: It's ok. I bought 2, both failed to boot when I opened the box. One has a loose cable on the hard drive, the other, the supplier has to ship a new hard drive. Installation was straight forward except the sound module did not work even after downloading a driver from HP which the supplier recommended. It is still in-operative and the speaker icon has an x, if you check the driver, it says the driver is working properly.
Summary: This HP is so much faster then my Dell. You'd never know it was refurbished. Shipping time was better then advertised and pick up at the store is easy. Great way to buy. And, it's great to know you can buy with confidence that if it doesn't work properly or is not as advertised, Walmart will make things right.
Summary: Pro - Windows 7 64 bit. Flies along nicely. I develop on this machine. I also use it for my main Internet access. I got a Windows 7 rescue CD. Con - Minor, due to case design your selection of peripherals is more limited. It's not that big of a deal.
