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.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Pretty much the same...
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? As far as I could tell, yes.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. This model was made back when Dell still made really good computers...somewhere around 2005 or 2006
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.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Perfectly
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent Quality
