Pros: For a average home user this is a great computer, has alright video card, good ram and HDD space and good features. But if you are going to be playing new video game and such it a good idea to upgrade the ram to 2gb and to get a new video card.
Cons: Well the video card is good but it really drags the system down when you have multiple windows up and running. The shared 256mb card, meaning that if you want 256mg for video it take the memory from the ram which in turn slows down performance, it should have been a separate card that had the same amount of memory.
Other Thoughts: Other than that I would recommend this computer for anyone that is a light to medium user and for the price.

Pros: Great computer for the price. No idea why people hate on P3s, they're still dope.
Cons: The only con with this is that Newegg uses the most vague language possible to tell you that it's a refurb. I had no idea until I got it, but it said refurbished on the box. "Recertified" and "RA" is by no means clear enough wording, Newegg. Shame on you.
Other Thoughts: It was a little (read: very little) dusty, but once I got it vacuumed out and put my old 7600GS in it, it was quite a capable box for my mom to do daily stuff on.
