This ThinkCentre M81 is not the fastest or newest system, but it worked very well. Although slower than the top of the line Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 processors, it is certainly faster than some of the brand new systems available in the store right now. It came with 4GB RAM; 2 sticks of 2 GB were installed, and two slots were empty. It has a 64bit version of Windows, so the RAM can be easily upgraded without issue. It included a "refurbished computer" version of Windows 7, including an authentic certificate of authenticity. The case itself was a little scratched up, but for $140, it is still a great deal. The optical drive is an older "combo" drive that reads, but does not burn DVD's. Windows 7 updated to Windows 10 without a problem. For a basic, day to day office, email and web surfing system, it should work great.
Computer came just as described, no variation at all with the specifics of the machine. The picture is almost identical to the machine I received- except for very minor wear and tear for each individual refurbished computer. Obviously each computer will have slight variations. I am very pleased!
I've only had it a couple days but I don't imagine ever having to buy another computer again unless this one breaks down on me but I don't see that happening if it's as sturdy as it feels. More laptop than you pay for at $$$. Hard drive alone is probably worth $$$ and with the i7 processor and the 16 gigs of ram this laptop is a bargain.
