HP DC5700 [Microsoft Authorized Recertified] Small Form Factor Desktop PC with Intel Core 2 Duo 1.86GHz, 2GB RAM, 160GB HDD, DVD-CDRW, Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very clean, almost mint condition
Delivers with Windows 7 new installation - no problems registering
Win 7 SP-1 already installed
Very good packaging
Low cost
Fast delivery

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a good functional light use computer this is a good fit. The Windows Experience Index rating for this system is only 3.3, mostly because of the low end on-board graphics card. For my application as a mother-in-law PC that will be used for email, facebook, youtube, and maybe some light word processing with LibreOffice this is a great fit. I could see this possibly also fitting as a business desktop in some cases, YMMV.

I would have liked to up the RAM in this system to 4GB, which is possible, but because of the limitation of the memory slots on the motherboard would have meant pulling out the sticks it shipped with and installing all new RAM. The limit is 4GB, both what the slots support, but also with the 32 bit version of Windows for refurbish units it comes with.

As a last note, even though this system comes with SP-1 already installed be aware that it will need a ton of Windows updates. When I first started Windows update, I had it set to do all of the updates at once, but the system ran out of RAM after downloading and froze up without actually doing any updates. I started again and selected in groups of 30-40 updates at a time and the update process went smoothly.

Lenovo Desktop PC M57/DC-2.5 Dual Core 2.5GHz 2GB 160GB HDD Windows 7 Home Premium
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Like new clean - opened the case and the internals were pristine, not a spec of dust to be seen even on the power supply fan blades.
Fresh unactivated copy of Win7 home professional SP1 (32 bit) installed which activated without a hitch.
Very good packaging
Includes keyboard and mouse

Cons: Nothing to complain about

Other Thoughts: Better than I expected for a refurb. May not be the computer for everyone, gamers will want to look elsewhere. But for use as an email, internet and office app machine this is sweet. I added 2GB of 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 to top it up. Remember 32 bit will not recognize the full 4GB, but for less that $30, no harm done.

Be prepared to spend a couple of hours updating Windows from the installed SP1 level.
