4 out of 5 eggsFor Business

Pros: Decent sized case, can stack monitor on top if place on desk or set on it's side to minimize foot print. CPU and RAM are perfect for simple office work. Has an inbuilt speaker too if that matters. Also very easy to disconnect said speaker if you need to.

Comes with Windows 7 Pro install disk so you can wipe and clean install the computer if you want.

Cons: Computer does not come clean. The refurbisher installs some garbage antivirus program called BullGuard onto every machine, I've purchased 4 myself so far. As a result I have to do a clean wipe and reinstall of Windows to eliminate any chance of this being a problem. It probably isn't but I'd rather be safe than sorry especially with a no name refurbisher. I seriously doubt they get paid much money for doing this and I would gladly pay a bit more to get a CLEAN machine.

Also I had one machine ship out to me with no CMOS battery installed. Luckily I had a pack of batteries sitting around from a server forgetting what year it was when the power went down from a dead battery.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to turn off the sleep feature in Windows. For whatever reason if one of these machines goes into sleep mode it will cause a BSOD. Not a knock on the seller though the sleep mode has always been hit or miss crazy for me on any Windows computer.

Just a note for the price and size this computer is great even with having to reinstall windows to meet my needs. I'd by more if I had the budget but I'm stuck replacing computers one or two at a time as they die off at work.
