HardwareCentral - Dell OptiPlex 745 Review.


All four flavors come with Intel's GMA 3000 integrated graphics, but all save the smallest can be upgraded to discrete PCI Express x16 graphics in the form of a 128MB ATI Radeon X1300 or 256MB Radeon X1300 Pro card. Our test desktop had one low-profile...

A fold-down handle helps you pull up the riser assembly to insert or remove expansion cards. Two of the four DIMM memory slots are fairly reachable, but the other two hide under the drive bays: The internal bay at the bottom of the stack holds the 80GB...

I don't mind ordering refurbished computers for small business, and sometimes you get a bad apple. I'm sure the majority are just fine.

Pricepoint is good for the features.

Couldn't use it. Dead on arrival.

Computer works fine, showed up with dead battery


It's what I wanted and is as advertised. Works great for watching TV, which is all I use it for. Price seemed reasonable for what you get.

The motherboard battery was dead, which means you have to push F1 every boot. It's really annoying. You guys couldn't toss a new battery in there? Lazy. I'm glad I had a spare laying around.

Huge monster


I would NOT purchase this product again and if it weren't such a huge hassle and expense, I would return it!

Worked great right out of the box.

Weighs a TON, READ before you order so you don't end up with a monstrosity like I did.

a little problem


the box arrived as scheduled but the shipping label was pasted OVER the data on the box that is used to receive the rebate. It sure looks like a scam but I will follow up with New Egg and Joy Systems to see what can be done
