I am happy with the computer, it has been working fine. What I was concerned about was how the computer was packaged and shipped. Box arrived crumpled and partially open. When I opened the inside, there was 4 pieces of styrofoam supporting this delicate computer. The styrofoam was broken, and the computer was bouncing around freely inside this smashed cardboard box. These computers are completely refurbished so you would think they would spend a little more time and effort to package them so they will reach their final destination without getting more damaged in shipment. Because of this, I only gave you a 4 star rating.
This SFF (Small Form Factor) unit has been used in businesses for years. It is extremely reliable. The power supply is external, so it does not suffer the same failure rate as your typical internal power supply. It comes with Windows, which actually costs more than the whole package deal in most cases. I would suggest upgrading the memory to 4GB and HD to a larger one, if you plan to use it often.
I needed a new box quickly, after my 10 year old one died. I wanted at least 3.0Gzh quad core, 8gb RAM and Win 7 Pro. To build a new box the way I wanted it was over *** even using some high end components from the old box. Added to this box, a 120gb SSD - *** This box came with no "Bloatware", only Win7 Pro installed. The hardware configurations is still supported by Dell on their support page. After ordering from Overstock, the item was at my front door in two days and I did not pay for expedited shipping. The interior and exterior of the box, was in "like new" condition. Initially, the performance rating, with SSD added and Win10 Pro upgrade (free) was 6.7. I have tweaked the system further but have not performed another test. I would not call this a gaming system but for those who want a very fast system, that can run multiple applications at the same time, including streaming video content effortlessly, this is the deal.
For the money spent, On this PC, was a good value, for being refurbished, it has some issues, but nothing my son cant solve, so I in all honesty can rate this item to be a 7.5, over all I am satisfied over this purchase.
