Consumer review (newegg.com)

Fair price

 

Comes w/2mb memory, but it it consists of 4 512k boards, so if you want a full 4mb, you will need to purchase it.

Good price to performance ratio. An excellent upgrade from XP series computers. Quiet fans, worked "out of the box

no obvious problems in the first month or two. legacy status is revealed by the mini-floppy drive }:)

I Wouldn't do it Again

 

Cheap price

Dead on arrival! Nothing, no lights, no fans, just dead. Contacted Newegg immediately was issued an RMA, then waited for 3 weeks for a replacement to arrive. The second unit came in with a dead CMOS battery, had go through setup to get it working. I...

Perfect for my needs

 

This computer boots up very quickly. Set up was a breeze, just had to input the included windows network key. I am using this as an office computer for basic work, and it is doing a great job. Item summary mentioned that this machine was easily...

No cons here, I knew this wasn't a high end machine, I also knew that it was a refurbished machine from being leased to a corporation, and so expected some minor cosmetic damage. Nothing major though, and no problems

BEWARE!

 

None

Windows 7 would not install. I called the warranty number and was told it probably had a RAM problem. I RMA it to Newegg. Still waiting for a replacment

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Very noisy, but can be fixed with a $5 exhaust fan. Skip this deal unless the price is right.

 

Only get this system if price is the most important aspect, and then get a cheap exhaust fan to put in one of the PCI slots. If you can spend $20-30 more to get a dual core, go that route instead.

Good price to replace an XP computer ($85 at time of my purchase). Cheaper than getting Windows at retail

Inadequate cooling. Only comes with one fan (at front of case) which does double-duty as a CPU fan also. No fan to suck hot air out of the system, or even decent air vents at the back ; Even in routine web browsing, the case fan becomes very noisy when...

Solid Deal

 

I have a computer repair business and wanted to see what I could get for 100 dollars. I can sell this and make a profit.

99 bucks with Windows 7 Pro ; PCI Express slot ; 4 Dimm slots

None for this pricepoint
