Summary: Maybe the motherboard in this computer is too old model to accept the latest memory... so please try to look for old type of memory if you are planning to buy this and upgrade... Overall, for the price, I have no complains.
Pros: The computer works, I bought it because it had genuine Windows in it, and the price itself is cheaper than a fresh copy of Windows. So I should not have any complain in terms of price, it's a great buy. You get to get the case, keyboard, and a mouse along with the windows 7 professional installed...
Cons: Also I bought G SKILL 8GB memory to install on this computer, which is 4GB X 2, but somehow the motherboard in this computer does not accept it. The computer does work with the original "no-name brand" memory it came with inside, but when I put in the brand new G Skill memory I bought, the comput...

Summary: The computer functions in the most basic, slow manner, which is to be expected. Considering it was purchased as a cheapo, quick fix replacement for a gaming desktop that croaked, I really can not complain.
Pros: Definitely a bargain in a pinch. The price of a replacement hard drive for a refurbished desktop including mouse, keyboard and shipping is certainly a great deal. The product arrived quickly and was packed very well. Everything is functional.
Cons: The product functions as expected, but nothing more. This is not really a "con" considering the price point, but I had hoped it might surprise me.
Summary: I periodically buy SFF desktop computers like this for varios uses: general household and business computing, lightweight graphics design, etc. after one of this general type (another Lenovo refurb) finally went toes-up after a decade or so, i bought this to replace it.

Summary: This is a BTX motherboard, ( something Intel designed then abandoned). The CPU fan is the only fan other than the PS for cooling. Using the display port and/or adding a video card will make this fan scream. The BIOS is old and has no fan settings.
Pros: It's a good bang for the buck despite its flaws. Core2Quad, Win7 Pro 64bit, Intel chip-set.Machine has relatively quick response after tweaking. The Intel chip set is more suited for a laptop than this desk top. ( Change the Intel Q43-45 chip set power settings to "performance" and off of it's de...
Cons: 1st unit DOA (RMA'd.). The replacement took almost 3 weeks. (New Egg would not replace until RMA was inspected.) . It had a terrible Internet lag. BTX CPU/motherboard. The CPU fan idles @ about 600 RPM
Pros: Usually in pretty good shape. Slightly banged up but not bad. They blow the dust out well. OS Installed and ready to finish. Hard to beat a refurb price point.
Cons: They describe these refurbs RAM, HD Size, 32 or 64 bit, etc They simply never have what they say in the description. These last four all have 32 bit Win7. Supposed to be 64. All had 250 gig drives. Supposed to be 160 gig. They count on the hassle of shipping back to outweigh exercising the warran...
Summary: Apparently this computer has a display port. Newegg should see which of their Display Port to HDMI adapters will work with this computer, and put a notice of such on their ad for this computer.. The keyboard that came with bothers me more than the front feet of the case coming off.
Pros: Small, green, fast. 8 USB ports Display port (?) It came with 4GB of RAM, makes it easy to run Virtual PCs, It can support 8GB of RAM. It takes standard hard-drives. It came with Windows 7 64bit operating system. Expansion slot, should be able to make it handle wireless easily. It is fast enough ...
Cons: Recertified, not refurbished.front feed fell off, still had Vista stickers on it. As far as I can tell, no lenovo software tools came with it. Small hard drive, which seems to be in an "okay," condition. The new mouse and keyboard sent with it, the mouse is alright, the keyboard has a strange pla...
