Great product, no problems, love the fact that it came with Windows 7 Professional. I'm not a big fan of the new windows 8

Great PC, especially for the price. This computer has a Dual Processor and is running on Windows 7, and for only $175.00 you can beat it. I always tend to buy refurbished PC because i have never had any issues doing so.

I was looking for a PC with Window's 7 as I am not a fan of Window's 8 and I found this option at Overstock. After reading the reviews I decided that this was the way to go. Computer arrived in great condition, have had no issues, runs nice and quite has plenty of storage and memory.

Its getting harder to find windows 7 computers now. I searched everywhere on the internet for a decent price. Considering the amazing case and the video card that comes with this computer it is a great value!

Was very pleased to get a quality PC at such a great price. The system was easy to set up and everything worked great. This was purchased for an elementary school-aged family member and will be more than adequate for her needs. Having the PC be upgraded to Windows 7 and have flexibility to expand the system is a real bonus - the Windows 7 software alone costs more than half the price of this PC! After seeing the quality of this system, I will not be buying new when I need to replace my own computer, I will be refurbished through Overstock!

First of all , I would like to say the computer is just a s good as any other on the market. The only thing that would make this better to me , would to have have it loaded with Windows 7! Windows 8 stinks! Complicated to use. That maybe why I'm n o t getting the best from my computer . It's suppose to be a gamer but haven't notice a ny difference in my golf game other than it doesn't skip anymore. I could have saved money buying about her computer with the same or more amenities. :( felt pressure during the season to grab the best deal. I think I grabbed the wrong one. It's a good computer but, over priced for what I got.

I have bought refurbished desktops and laptops before from other companies for myself and employees. I am pretty technologically savvy. I had been using an XP based system, which was a refurb I had owned for 10 years. But, the time had come to upgrade to Windows 7 or 8 with XP support fading. I wanted a faster system, so rather than rebuild the current box, I just tried this out from Overstock. I took it right out of the box and pugged it in....so far so good. It is considerably faster than the old XP. But, 10 minutes in to the set up....BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH!. The unit does not stay on for more than 10 minutes before crashing. The problem is a faulty driver for the video card. Seems the unit was a Vista system, prior to being refurbed...the driver conflicts with the Windows 7 Pro the refurb company installed. I have been tinkering around with several drivers, but at the present time, I have not been able to get it to function properly. I am waiting to hear back from the refurb company to see what can be done....but, it has been a major disruption in my weekly output for my business. Play with fire, I guess, and eventually you get burned. I would still consider buying a refurb, but the odds of this type of thing caught up with me, I guess.

it's a bargin computer only cost $190.00 On arrival notice it had an XP Operating system when it was new, but Overstock loaded it with Windows 7, you know I wish they had left XP Operating system. Bill Gates just won't admit a mistake, could have been worst that Windows 8 might have been loaded and thats a work in progress. Otherwise it works as intended.

Works fine. Initial problem with one DIMM Chip not completely seated. Once the chip was properly seated it running like it should.

This gaming computer received great reviews, and so I took a chance on it for my children. My son specifically told me not to purchase windows 8. This came with windows 7. A gaming computer is so much more powerful than a regular computer. It has increased memory, performance, speed, and advanced video and audio cards. I would not just recommend this computer for gaming, but also for use as a desktop computer. There is nothing that you can't do on here that you can't do on a regular desk top - PLUS SO MUCH MORE - than a desktop. Cyberpower is a popular name in gaming computers, while one may not recognize as they would HP, Dell, etc. The bottom line is that I was very pleased with this purchase, and if I could not buy a MAC, I would buy this gaming computer, as opposed to any other desktop.

I was looking for a computer for home use to replace my old out of date desk top. This re-furbished Dell is just what I needed. It is quick, comes with Windows 7 and is much smaller than my old one. The keyboard is not of great quality, the 'Back' key is too small. Overall, I think I got a great deal on a real quality product.

My old Desktop office computer died and I needed a replacement just for billing customers, book keeping and working on my website. No surfing planned No Gaming planned Just the basics... and I didn't want Windows 8 under any circumstances. I recently bought a new laptop and it came with Windows 8. The learning curve for W8 is long and even when you get familiar with it, it still is a frustrating software. MS blew it this time. I'm very happy with Windows 7 on this machine. The price was very reasonable and it looks and runs like a new computer. The only problem is that it doesn't have a telephone 'line in' connection. Most people don't need one but I have an old school modem that is used, only, to connect to equipment at customer's residences. There is a work around but it's clumsy. I'd recommend this refurbished computer to anyone just needing the basics with a ton of hard drive space.

Wow, this is a fast computer. We turn the computer on and we are on the internet! Once we turn the computer off it is off, no waiting for 10 minutes! Been use to the Windows 7 on our other computer so it's taking some time to get around the newer program that came installed on this computer.

The computer came quickly, was exactly as advertised, and works great. It was easy to set up, since it came with Windows 7 already installed. We use Google Chrome, so our settings synced to the computer, and we were up and running.

It will not even let me download a letter weitten in word to this computer. I have to take it to a computer store I guess to get it fixed. I tried to reboot the windows 7 that came with it and all it does is try to DVDR? I should have spent my money somewhere else. Buy the time I go pay someone to look at this and fix it. I could had gotten a good one. Live and learn. Buy it nice or buy it twice.

This item was a refurbished Dell Business Desktop (XP Editiion) computer that someone installed Windows 7 Home Premium on. It works really good and I have not had any issues with it. Thankfully it is dual core pentium and so it can handle Windows 7 pretty good. In spite of it's age it is very fast. Even going online with IE 8 is fast (a couple of seconds). Web pages load quickly and programs would probably open in a second or two if not for the built in security features of Windows 7 where you have to give all programs permission to open but since I always use Comodo firewall on my computers, I am used to that anyway. It comes with the Windows 7 CD in case you have some issue that requires you to do a re-install and the back up disk making software included in Windows 7 is excellent. There are a lot of good things about Windows 7 but it has it drawbacks too. There are a lot privacy invasive issues with Windows 7 that I was not too keen about and the contract that you have to agree to before they will activate it also stinks and nearly made me send back the PC. The keyboard is a standard, run-of-the-mill, no name cheapie that costs about $5 if purchased separately and mine shorted out about two weeks after I purchased my desktop but Overstock was on the ball and all I had to do was call and explain the problem and they immediately set about getting and shipping me another one and told me that I didn't have to return the old one so I just threw it out. The mouse is also a standard run-of-the-mill mouse corded, nothing special. Over all this was a good deal but the issues that I have with how invasive Windows 7 is keeps me from giving this a five star rating.

I never bought any brand name computers beside ACER since 1984 ! This is my first Dell product to try out. For sure, the price is affordable and the product is good. Optiplex 755 was designed for Windows XP, but was loaded with Windows 7 Professional. Operation of the PC is very good, but the Microsoft updates for Windows 7 gave me headache. Of course that is a problem of Microsoft. I will definitely buy more Dell product in the future.

Had the computer for a few days now and everything worked great right out of box. Booted right up and just a few updates and its running fine. This unit looks brand new, and with windows 7; I don't have the bugs of win.8 Shipped fast from east coast so arrived in 3 days, The 3rd day was just UPS local, as it was in town in 2 days. I'm not a computer guy so I'm very impressed with the ease of transferring info from old pc.

Excelllent refurbished machine. Using as a 'spare.' I am a big fan of Dell products and this was a great buy. Basic features, no word processer, which I wish it did have, and no real 'bells and whistles' but working out well for my needs. Overstock had really fast delivery too, which I was happy about, since my main computer is in the shop for maintainence. This computer comes with Windows 7, which is pretty basic. So far, its running great, and would highly recommend.
Choosing the right operating system is important if you're buying a new computer with the software already installed. Many new and refurbished computers feature either Windows 7 or Windows Vista pre-installed. If you already have Vista installed, you might be wondering whether or not to upgrade Vista to Windows 7. Below are a few points on which to compare both operating systems.
