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.
Pros: After the delay in shipping and having to install a new rear fan, it is working ok.
Cons: Didn't leave Joy Systems who sells the refurbished PC. I had to call Newegg, UPS and Joy Systems. While installing systems updates on the PC, the fan started running at full speed.; 512 error, rear fan not detected. I had to order a new 92mm PWM rear fan. I wouldn't buy a refurbished PC from Newegg/Joy Systems again.
Summary: According to the description of this computer it's a Windows XP Professional PC. And that's why I bought it. My aunt doesn't like Windows 7. So when this showed up with Windows 7 as the OS I knew I'd need to downgrade it to XP. Cost me more then it should have. Don't tell people it is what it isn't.
Summary: I was looking for a replacement for my old Dell that was using Windows XP. I was a little hesitant on buying a used one but upon reading the reviews on this seller, I went for it. I am really impressed with the condition of the tower and how well packed the shipping box was. I hooked it up and it ran beauful. No surprises. I got a new monitor and was thinking I had to load the software to make it work but the computer recognized it as well as the mouse and keyboard.
