Summary: I am impressed with the used machine. It is working out nicely for my children as they use it to do their homework. I will never buy a new one as long as I can get this quality out of a used machine.
Summary: First off I received the dc7800 64bit pc and I couldn't be more satisfied.This pc is light years faster than my old hp-compac.Added my video and soundcard from my old pc and haven't looked back.Would buy again!Good job Cravingsavings.
Summary: Win 7 preload came right up, no missing drivers or exclamation marks in device manager. Haven't used Windows much on it beyond the first bootup as it's being used as a Linux MythTV DVR frontend. There is a start menu option to make a USB recovery drive (USB only, no DVD or iso option), so add a USB flash drive to your order if you want recovery media. It says max 32GB USB drive, I used a 16GB successfully.
Pros: Affordable Win 7 home premium 64 bit - price of the OS alone is almost as much as the whole computer It's an HP business PC, designed for long life as a typical desktop No junk software loaded
Cons: Not currently being delivered to match the photos - no recovery disc, DVS cable, or half-height addon video card. I was banking on using the video card with a DVS to DVI cable to connect to an HDTV. Newegg has been asked to update the photos. Open PCI slot in the back missing a filler plate (where the video card should be) Few scratches and some dust, but it's a refurb so that's to be expected.
Summary: I originally brought two of these for a friend to utilize memory (reviews indicated two memory slots were available) and hard drives I had on hand. They worked so well that I brought two more, and was surprised to find that they were not exactly the same. Swapping memory with the older units, and adding video cards solved the problem. Also at ;least one of the second units had Win 7 64 bit installed, which is probably a plus.
Pros: Core duo CPU, PCIe and PCI slots, room for second HD. Four memory slots, decent onboard graphics.
Cons: No longer comes with ATI Video card, but has slot to add an inexpensive low profile, low power card. Memory slots may be populated with mismatched 512 MB ram, but dual channel mode is still functional. Also the pictured installation media (whats in the box) is replaced by a 12G recovery partition, making a second drive necessary for more than minimal storage capacity.
