Summary: Newegg doesn't deliver to PO Box addresses. Here in the boondocks even UPS drops their packages at the local Post Office. Creates a real problem for those of us who do not have home mail delivery.
Pros: Unit booted up out of the box and has current version of Windows 7. Ordered a low profile wifi card and the PC is now on the home network. Will probably order another for my shop.
Summary: this is a great computer for the price I've had it a few years and it will be with me forever. its never let down and takes little up a very little space, I also bought one for my daughter for homework. She loves it too
Summary: I have two of these, now, one about a year old (for me) and being used steadily ripping and creating videos. I wish it had USB 3.0. The only changes I made were changing out the optical drive for DVDRW and adding 4 GB of RAM.
Pros: Small, fast, more than powerful enough for most non-gamer applications. Also has space for a second 3.5" (or smaller) SATA drive.
Cons: Small form factor but that is only a negative if you want to stuff it full of cards and drives. No USB 3.0.
Summary: This is my 2nd refurbished. First one a Dell 2nd one this Hp. Both same computer 4 mem terra harddrive. Why pay two or three times more for a new one? These were both. Windows 7 which I prefer over 8. Actually preferred XP over all of the versions. I did get a refurb one once with a bad DVD drive.
Summary: Recieved one 2 years ago-still running well. recieved one today and orderd 6 more. The one I got today I logged on to windows and activated it. It even had drivers for my wireless card. I the rebooted and went into the Bios to find the Sata was set at IDE.
Pros: Specs are great for a machine of this cost.Couldn't even tell if it was a Refurb. I think some of them are just factory overruns. absolutly NO JUNKWARE installed Only about 45 updates to get. Was updated this year in March.
Cons: A little bit of work to upgrade to SSD. (see other thoughts)
I give this Windows 7 computer a 5-star rating because I am really happy with it

Summary: This refurbished computer works nearly flawlessly. The only problem I have with it is that I cannot get the USB to Serial cable converter to work. I am a geocacher and need to transfer coords from computer to GPS receivers. However, I also have a Vista computer and am using it to do my geocaching.
