Summary: I was a little skeptical about buying a refurbished computer, but this computer is great! It was extremely easy to set up. And I am in no means an expert technology person. Only thing is that it didn't come with a cable to set up to the internet. I had to go purchase one.

Summary: I HAD a new all-in-one rather pricey desk top; then my new puppy got tangled in the electrical cord. The screen was jolted but DID NOT fall or drop BUT that blotch that indicates a blown screen appeared and according to 2 repair shops can not be fixed or rigged to a new modem.
