Dont usually write reviews like this. But I was impressed with this buy. I ordered on a Tues and it said arrival on Friday. But like the other reviews said, it arrived a day early. It was well packaged. And it was in very good shape. One unexpected bonus was an adapter cable for the video card so you can run both a vga and a dvi monitor. I wouldn't have been able to use my monitor otherwise. Fired up smoothly, installed windows, went online to activate in a matter of minutes. Of course it downloaded over 100 updates within a couple of days. Others said, I thiink that they made a recovery disc first thing. I think I would wait to d/l the updates and then do the recover disc, since no OS discs are included. I had been looking online for over a week for a refurb with price and specs I wanted. When I saw this, I looked up Dell T3400 and found a few at a similar price. But everyone of them had a combo of lesser cpu, less memory, smaller HD, no discreet video card. Finally, add free shipping. I have been running it for a bit over a week and am very happy with it. Not a long time except that I do this at work with literally dozens of Dells so I feel I can tell if a computer has quirks or faults fairly quickly.
