3 out of 5 eggsobsolete today

Pros: I have a Dell Vostro 200 mini desktop with 3.0 GHz core-2-duo, 4 GB ram maxxed, Win 7 pro. The DVD drive isn't a writer. It is barely powerful enough to browse today's web. With more than a few browser windows opened, the ram runs 80% used and it starts using Swap file and loses stability. Onboard audio has no functionality besides selecting inputs and outputs, like an equalizer would be nice, but now I'm getting picky. Never had a problem with a hard drive selected by Dell, although one day SSDs will finally appear in refurbs. At least this one come with ram maxxed; I had to throw out two 1 GB sticks and add two 2 GB sticks from crucial.com.

And mine only a VGA video out.

Cons: These Newegg refurbs would do everyone a favor if they would specify which microprocessor they contain. There are a bunch of 3 GHz core-2-duos, some are worth a lot more than others, so you can't know if this Dell is a good deal for the money.

Other Thoughts: For a microprocessor, I recommend an i3, i5, or i7. It should be able to run [at least] four threads (either 4 cores or 2 cores with hyperthreading -- cross reference your specific CPU with wikipedia). Divide the processor's amount of L3 cache by the number of threads, and you'll want 3/4 MB cache per thread, average, minimum.

Although 4 GB ram was enough for XP, it isn't enough for Win7; I would say 8 GB is minimum -- more if you're going to edit video files.

If you play games, you'll want more video than these machines provide. Newer "i" computers might have sufficient onboard video, but check the web for specific advice about your preferred game. Personally, my preferred "game" is distributed computing projects, and they don't need video capabilites, just a good, energy efficient processor.

Minor problem like DVD drives that don't write -- can be helped with external USB writer.

Another video monitor might require a USB video dongle or a video card. This computer will certainly NOT accept the biggest newest internal video cards, but it's another option, besides USB dongles, for better video performance and addition video outputs for multi-monitor.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat little workstation

Pros: Specs are perfect for our application (Aloha Point of Sale)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've bought about 10 of these to use as servers for Aloha and every one of them has come to me in great condition with just minor cosmetic damage that you would expect in a refurbished PC. All have come very well packed as to not incur damage in shipping.

3 out of 5 eggsGood enough but...

Pros: A lot of bang for the buck for most users. Clean unit.

Cons: A missing video card driver (Microsoft installed one of course but I didn't catch it) cost me a trip back to the customers house. I had to take 2 stars off for this...sorry. You can not ship a machine out with a microsoft graphics driver IMO. I would never do it.

Other Thoughts: A little slop inside the box on packaging. I would not have let it go across the country like this.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far, so good

Pros: Cost effective. A big positive step from XP (yes we were dragging our feet on these 2 units - took momentary physical failures & true end of XP to get us to buy new CPUs...if it ain't broke). No fuss, nice to have a really clean machine

Cons: You will likely want to update the video card driver (until you do you'll get intermittent and momentary black screens while surfing the net). Yes the included keyboard and mouse are basic, but they are new. The power cord seats okay but not super-firm/secure at the CPU. Came loaded with IE8 (slightly outdated)

Other Thoughts: Arrived quickly and well-packed. "Before you Begin" sheet suggests there are additional detailed instructions - there aren't, but seriously just plug the thing in and go (after carefully transcribing the Win7 product key), and you'll be fine.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor Cosmetics

Pros: Works

Cons: We bought 3 of these units. The side panels have been spray painted. You can still smell the paint. The black plastic front and top parts have paint overspray that had to be compounded out. These were C grade units dressed up to look like B or A. What a disappointment.

Other Thoughts: One of the units had a bad onboard Ethernet port. Not worth the price paid. Newegg needs to dump this supplier. The only good thing is that with a lot of work we were able to resell these units.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Machine

Pros: Great price. I got this machine as a replacement for my grandpas old compaq. It is exactly as advertised. Biggest pro is that it comes with a clean OS install, no bloat wear, no need to reformat.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: It comes with a keyboard and mouse
