Summary: Bought this over a year ago so far and the machine is solid. Had a few NIC card errors at first, but nothing a driver update couldn't fix. Well packed and everything came as described. Great system for the low end user just interested in browsing, blogging and MS Office use.
Summary: I got this for my father and he loves it. Just wanted a computer to play his games as well as check his email and surf the net. I had no problems setting it up (less than 10 minutes). Love the wifi that comes with it (didn't want to add long lines of wire) as the router is on the third floor and his computer is in the basement but gets on the internet with ease. If I had to I would another in a minute.
Summary: The unit is great for every day computing. Its dual core 3 ghz is quite capable and add 2 gig memory from good used reseller on the net and you got it made. Very suprisingly this makes a great media center PC and is more energy efficient than a typical desktop. The video chips and hdmi output do the job at 1080p!! I bought one and my friend bought 3, we love them. Too bad they sold out.
Summary: Great computer for the price. The computer is fast and it is quiet. The built in Wi-Fi and the dual Wi-Fi antennas are great and pickup and connects to weak signals. Quality would have bee a five except it was a refubrished computers.
Summary: Techie myself. Had purchased many other PC. Don't be taken back by the term 'Refurbished'. It came almost as clean and new. The folks who turn it around did a great job. Does everything I need to do from a PC. Although not a fancy 'games machine', it is fast enough for my use, eg emails, surfing the web, preparing documents.
Summary: These are really good deals. My wife's computer was having problems and we weren't looking forward to spending $500 - $700 more on a new one. Then I came across this one for $200 and it has proven to be very reliable and runs great. I even bought another refurb to replace my XP machine and also got a great deal on that as well. You just can't beat these prices and quality.
Summary: purchased this low cost computer for little more than the cost of an operating system, making it a nice secondary computer. I added an extra star for this after considering the cons. Nice clean unit appeared as new condition. Unit boots up quickly and is plenty fast.
