Great kid PC

 

This is obviously not a high-end machine, but for $100 you can't go too wrong as a beginner machine for children or older people that don't demand lots of resources.

Inexpensive, works fine for my kids. Added some RAM and an old GPU and it works fine for my young kids' gaming needs

Dell proprietary parts make it tricky to upgrade somethings. You'll need a different power supply for any additional power needs

This PC is a NewEgg Plus. No problems whats ever and it is screaming fast for a dual core. I recommend it to anyone looking for a bargain fast PC

Decent Systems

 

I bought 5 of these machines for a project. Three of them are in GREAT shape. A fourth has some fairly interesting gashes down one side, and the fifth case...well someone gave it a _beat_down_. That case has some issues and is the only reason for...

Cheap price. Full computer systems. Good performance

The USB keyboards are _junk_ and the USB mice are worse. These are TERRIBLE so I am really glad that I have a KVM and adapters (there are no PS/2 ports) ; The PCI express video card in the picture is just a stump to provide DVI. The real video card is...

Best DEAL going!

 

If this deal doesn't suite you, maybe you should spend 4 times the price for a new one with the "slower" windows 7 installed?

Anyone complaining about this package has got to be kidding!! This is one of the best deals going even without the keyboard and mouse! Do you know what a XP Pro disc alone cost ; This package is a great secondary or Primary PC for your home. I have 2...

Absolutly NONE

Cheap keyboard

 

Good unit for upgrade. Great deal

Cheapest keyboard ever seen. 23 0f 100 keys didnt work. so if ordering order a keyboard seperate, because to have it replaced you have to send whole unit back and have new one sent which takes 7-11 days

Excellent PC

 

I've given up purchasing the new systems, and paying the price for new technology, only to be outdated in a year. The system came to me Newegg fast, and worked perfectly. The restore disk is a big plus for me. I only hope I don't lose it before I need...

In my opinion there are non. I saved a lot of money, how can I write anything other than "Thanks Newegg

Good buy, but beware!

 

All in all, a good buy and may get another refurbished system, but won't assume it comes with a warranty even if it says so. Newegg was willing to take it back, but I would have to pay for shipping. Gonna keep it though cause its fine now. Sad though,...

Does what it should. Come with a OS reinstall disk, which in my opinion, is something every PC should come with

Had a slight issue using older speakers (speakers work on other devices including another PC). The sound was not coming out right. For whatever reason (I really don't know why it would matter, speaker plug is a speaker plug), newer speakers solved the...

Solid Computer

 

Worked out of the box, graphics decent for price. Spent an hour updating and has run like a champ since

None so far, what do you really expect for $179 anyway
