5 out of 5 eggsI own the original, not the refurbished

Pros: IF you get a working refurb:
1. Note DDR2 memory. One 2-GB module is included, simply snap in a second one for 4-GB memory, the maximum the motherboard can handle.

2. CPU is a low-wattage single-core, BUT motherboard allows for a no-issues upgrade to Socket AM2+ dual- or quad-core AMD processors up to 95 watts. I had an Athlon 7550 and it snapped right in -- you can find an OEM one for under forty bucks online. When I'm ready, I can take the Phenom 9550 out of my primary and that'll snap right in, too. The installed fan/heatsink (very surprised with the quality-not AMD stock) can handle the increased heat of 95W all day long (just a bit louder than the initial extra-quiet processor, not much, <5 degree temperature increase (MX-2 thermal compound). Here are the motherboard specs:

Cons: You're stuck with 95 watts max and 4 GB onboard memory.

Oh my word, the bloatware. Allot two hours to clear out the junk this comes with.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking to buy a basic computer you can turn into a nice little intermediate-level computer with very little investment and know-how (the changes I've described as of 07/11 cost $120 or less), this is it. Buying this here has turned out to be one of the best investments I made last year.

2 out of 5 eggsFailure to start up

Pros: Excellent Customer Service by Newegg in following up my request for a refund.

Cons: This is the second Compaq Presario CQ5600f I've purchased in two weeks and I've returned both for the same reason---failure to start up. The green power light was on...but nothing lit up when I hit the start switch..
