Summary: got it home, hooked it up to my hardware, turned it on and auto installed windows 7. Great for novice just follow the screen. Had to upgrade from XP for my business and got this computer for it. So far its working, but time will tell.
Summary: My first experience with a refurbished computer, and everything went well! I replaced an old desktop that had Windows XP. Since MS will no longer support XP beginning in 2014, I did not want to either (1) buy a new computer, or (2) buy the required Windows upgrade for over $100. Once I had installed the refurbished unit, it ran like a top! This computer will do everything I need, and more. HUGH savings!
Summary: It is everything they say it is.Workd right out of the box.No software to install.It is fast,and has a built in speaker.6 USB ports,make it an easy to use computer.I am hard person to convience but they my business.
Summary: Replaced my Dell desktop which had a crashed mother board. Adequate speed with the Core 2 Duo but a little light on ram and hard drive. I pulled the 320hd out of my old box and will put it in this HP after the warranty expires. The unit works well and runs smooth but it needed some reconfiguration so be prepared to do that or have it done. I took it to a local geek to tune it.
Summary: This computer is a very easy way of getting on Windows7 at a reasonable cost. Whilst its footprint is relatively large, the space it occupies on the bench is no larger than a computer with a seperate monitor. Windows7 Home premium is pre-loaded and a CD is supplied to enable you to reload if things go wrong. It is restricted to one PC and cannot be copied to a laptop for example. It worked perfectly from first switching on.
