Pros: This is a first class Intel Corei5 system housed in HP's microtower case, which is much higher quality than the current HP 400 G1 computers, whose main advantage is USB 3.0, which the Elite 8200 does not have.
Windows 7 is also a far better choice for those who work with computers seriously, since Windows 8, 8.1, and 10 have strayed too far in the tablet direction, and are a huge waste of time in addition to having serious compatibility problems still.
The refurbishers have done an excellent job. If you need more RAM or more storage, the costs are lower than ever.
Cons: Lacks USB 3.0
Other Thoughts: Many of these HP Refurbished Business models are sturdy, reliable, relatively fast for office work and thus are excellent deals when they come with Windows 7.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This computer is perfect for someone who only wants e-mail or internet access, not for anyone doing any heavy duty stuff such as video editing or serious gaming.
It comes with Win 7 64bit and as the enclosed note says - a stable OS, no need to upgrade to Win 10 (which is an attempt to give get back to Win 7, but fails). I agree wholeheartedly - forget about Win 10 it stinks for anyone other than a total beginner who does not need access to various OS settings which the experienced user needs to find.
Other Thoughts: These HP computers (6000 series) come with an excellent solid high quality case with lots of room in a smaller tower case.
Note that a standard mATA motherboard will not work because of the HP layout -the I/O end is on the shorter horizontal end of the motherboard.
Pros: I chose this card primarily for 3D rendering in DAZ3D, rather than for gaming. Renders are very fast and good looking. Video streams of movies are excellent too.
Cons: Needs lots of power. Rebate company cheated me out of the rebate.
Other Thoughts: Be sure to use 6 pin power connector, otherwise with 3 pin connector card will not work
Don't expect to get the rebate. They told me I had missed the deadline which is nonsense and gave me another chance to re-submit, which I did and never heard from them. Cheated me out of $20. I guess I will not recommend XFX to honor the rebate in the future. XFX should fire these jerks.
