Refurb DELL OptiPlex 745
This review is from: DELL OptiPlex 745 (DTDEOP745-SFF3) Desktop PC Pentium D 2.8GHz 2GB 80GB HDD Capacity Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit
Pros: I purchased this low cost computer for little more than the cost of an operating system, making it a nice secondary computer. I added an extra star for this after considering the cons. Nice clean unit appeared as new condition. Unit boots up quickly and is plenty fast for internet surfing and office applications.
Cons: The computer comes with Windows preloaded and a back up CD, which is good because IE9 would hang up upon opening. It was strange that this was the case and Firefox was preloaded also, but Mozilla worked flawlessly. On day two, the system crashed and wouldn't reboot due to BIOS boot errors. Removing miss matched memory sticks (2) resolved the problem. Time will tell if that was the true fix as I haven't had time to fully troubleshoot the system.
Other Thoughts: Time will tell if this unit was a good buy, but for the cost, at least I have a CD with Windows 7 and a license number to install it on another computer. Lastly, I don't believe this computer would be the best for graphic intensive applications as sold and there is little room in the case to add a graphics card.
