I purchased this computer to replace my old relic of a computer. I was surprised by how fast I received it and I really liked the size! I had an old computer tower that sat on the floor and took up a bunch of room. This is sleek enough to keep on my desktop without taking up too much space. The only gripe I had was it stated in the description there would be a free trial for Microsoft Office, but I wasn't able to get that loaded as it kept asking for product information. I will have to contact customer support for that. Other than that, the computer works great and I am happy with the purchase.
I'd been using this old Dell laptop here at work for a while and, poor thing, it just wasn't cutting the mustard anymore. I didn't need much, but I needed more than that old thing could give me. So I went with this. First, the shipping time was kinda slow I thought, I ordered a couple things after this order that arrived before it did which is no fun. It was packed very well and I didn't have problems with that aspect of the order. The PC is clearly refurbished. I can see quite a bit of wear on the bottom and face of the unit, but that's not a big deal for me. It's sitting in a corner. Cosmetics aren't what I'm looking for here, but I feel it should be mentioned. It's solid, sturdy, and everything works, physically, as expected. It's even got a built in speaker. That's kinda neat. No built in wi-fi which wasn't so neat, but I picked up a USB device with it and it's been pretty great so far. Big problem was... I couldn't download anything once I get into windows and everything was setup. Everything tried to save as either a .txt file or a file with no extension, and trying to fix that manually didn't give me any results. I was able to get a new browser installed via the app store but no luck. So I had to so a system reset. Once that was done though... it's been great. I'm on my second week using this thing and haven't had a single issue with it. Perfect for the little bit of audio/video work I go, some graphic work, documents... It's not a high performance machine, but if you're not in a high performance setting, there's not much wrong with this. Oh! No HDMI out which is ok here at work... I kinda thought about getting another one for my living room to replace another ancient laptop but the HDMI is kind of a requirement there. So I haven't bit the bullet on that one yet. Anyway. Good system, good price. I'm happy.
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!
