  • Review Dell Optiplex 745 XP Purchase
    Verified Purchase

    This is a lot of horsepower for a good price and HOW WONDERFUL to still be able to still get a legitimate PC with Windows XP on it! Interestingly, the "XP Pro for Refurbished PC" that is provided can easily be replaced by booting form an OEM Dell CD as provided for these machines originally-- does not even need to be exactly this model. the site **** still 'knows' about the particular PC by using its Service Tag, making updating and servicing these machines a treat-- Very little problem getting this to be a totally useful PC!

    Verified Purchase

    Needed a basic replacement updated computer for my husband. He doesn't use a lot of media programs, so I know this would be perfect with plenty of hard drive for his needs. Great price for a dependable unit.

  • Great product for a great price
    Verified Purchase

    I was familiar with this model since I worked on this at my job and loved it. I love the small size and it does everything I need a computer for. I could not be happier with my purchase. Although a little more software would be good.

Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    "Just received the system and plugged the wireless adapter dongle I was using on my previous Dell but it won't work on this one. Do I need to buy a wireless card for this to connect to the internet?"

    • A:

      Just found the answer. My adapter was faulty. Bought a new one and plugged it in, and the internet is connected.

    • A:

      It is possible that the wireless device needs to be installed with the CD that likely accompanied it. Windows XP is not always "plug and play".
