Summary: It came as expected. Since this was a refurbished system, I was concerned about it running without problems. I had to buy a couple of things to bring it up to MY personal settings, but it is a wonderful system and would recommend it to anybody looking for a high quality, smooth-running PC. I did bring it up from 6MB RAM to a total 8GB RAM. I couldn't be a more satisfied customer.
Summary: This would be a wonderful computer, but the keyboard and mouse don't work and the disk player doesn't play, so unless we can fix it we have wasted our money, which is a lot to us... My daughter will work on it some more.. and so far I have not heard from the seller..
Summary: I got it a year ago.. I read the reviews about the loud sound and figured ahh i can deal with that. About a couple months ago the fan went out or something, but it sounds like a jet airplane right now! Lol i wouldn't recommend it , look for something else..
Summary: This was a replacement for my sister's old XP 17" computer a couple of years ago (birthday present). As an independent travel agent, her setup was way too small, so she wasn't "growing" her business. With this unit, she could easily show more display, it ran much faster, and it brought her into the 21st Century. Her ability was never in question, only her minimal technology that limited "selling" her clients well.
Summary: Very disappointing I had this PC only 3 months when the hard drive failed. Called customer service and spoke to someone in a foreign country with very poor English speaking skill and had a very hard time understanding. Will definitely go with a Apple PC next time...
Hard drive died suddenly. Less than a year of service

Summary: I really do like this machine, reasonably smooth and fast. Used in my shop mostly for internet radio and photo album work. Fortunately I never stored anything on this machine of any consequence. Purchased new in October 2012 and yesterday September 19/2013 the hard drive stopped working. If you consider buying one of these machines, buy the extended warranty and back up the entire hard drive regularly! It seems the hard drive installed wasn't ready for prime time.
