3 out of 5 eggslasted less than 2 years

Pros: Worked well for a few months

Cons: Starting to "black out" and it's not 2 years old.

Other Thoughts: I know it's a refurbished machine but I seriously think it should last at least a couple of years.

4 out of 5 eggsBig Memory-Low price

Pros: Light, Mega memory, both RAM and harddrive, outstanding DVD writer, very fast at an excellent price.

Cons: No dual core processor

Other Thoughts: Once again Newegg has what I'm looking for at the right price. I only shop for computer hardwear every couple years. But once I get done doing my research Newegg has the level of equipment I want a the lowest price out there. Shipping has always been great nothing ever damaged ot returned.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad, good price

Pros: The price is what notched this up from a 3 star rating to a 4. As it's been pointed out, you can't beat this price. My love bought it as a make due while I gut my tower and revamp it. It runs most games decently and could support WOW with the graphics at minimum (tested on Knight Online, GodsWar, ASDA Story, Maple Story, Dungeons & Dragons: Ebberon). Expect lag and choppiness though--this is not the right type of pc for high res/graphics gaming. (Even HP's internal monitoring system gives a 3.4 star rating out of the box.)

Nice case if not small for upgrading, fan runs quiet. Lots of USB support. 500gb SATA II drive really is a beautiful add considering the price. The 2gb RAM... well what do you want for under $300!

Cons: So, naturally there's a few problems. Should have had XP, not 7. It just doesn't have the hardware to support such hardware intensive usage from 7. Causes huge lag and multi-tasking is difficult. Win7 is having some Java compat issues, making it problematic for new users. (To resolve, uninstall from Add/Remove JVM and download/install from Sun.)

Power supply only has cables for one drive. . . I didn't even know that was done anymore because most people still use a second, tertiary, or external drive for backup purposes.

HP/Compaq loaded it with software you simply don't need. Their HP games applet from Wild Tangent.... eh. Their docking station can be removed by deleting the exe. Diagnostics are nice and pretty comprehensive but experienced users should be prepared to spend an hour getting rid of trash you won't use.

Other Thoughts: Good for newbies who aren't looking for graphics design or game play capacities, or who won't be doing any exhaustive computing....

For everyone else, still a good computer provided you're willing to put some time and love in with tweaking or upgrading.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat return

Pros: Awesome return on your dollar. Considering windows 7 64bit is 100.00 - nearly impossible to beat this entire build with the left over 175.00.

I would highly recommend this computer for any family member turning to you to build/buy them a cheap but nice computer.

My mother has had it ~5 months now and it still runs perfectly for what she uses it for.

Cons: Wish I bought it as low as it is now!

Other Thoughts: Great for everyday use - found it for my mother tbh

5 out of 5 eggsGood Pc

Pros: This pc is great if you upgrade video card and add 2 gigs of memory.

Cons: No card readers other than that a good unit.

Other Thoughts: Compaq makes great computers I have another Compaq that is 11 years old the only thing I have changed is the power supply.
