Disappointing Quality Control
Pros: Good value for the price, if you don't have to finish the refurb job yourself, like I did.
Cons: Wouldn't boot. BIOS indicated no hard drive installed. Opened the case. It was missing a SATA data cable. Took a SATA data cable out of another PC, installed it. BIOS now recognized a hard drive, but it still wouldn't boot. Checked the Hitachi hard drive. It hadn't been initialized, or formatted, much less had an operating system installed on it. I had to initialize it, format it, and install Windows 7 myself.
Other Thoughts: The label says " Dell factory trained technicians have tested the product". It's obvious to me that this system was not tested, or even powered on before it was shipped. Any competent technician would have noticed the lack of hard drive detection.
