This review is from: HP Desktop PC DC7100 Pentium 4 2.8 GHz 2GB 40 GB HDD Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit
Pros: These were recently offered at $88.99 each and I jumped on that! Although originally built with Windows XP, they were refurbished with Windows 7 home premium. I bought the "per-customer" limit of five units as an affordable way to finally retire Windows XP from my household. I am very glad I caught this sale price! The computers are better than expected. I opened three of the five boxes and had them running and updated that same day. No defects beyond a few scuffmarks and small scratches! They are office workhorses of course, but able to handle streaming video and radio as well and even have a decent sounding built in speaker as well as all the jacks and ports you would expect on a mid range PC. An advanced gamer or video producer or CAD CAM person would want more, but an average joe or jane will find these useful. My sincere thanks to the reburbishing organization for a job well done, and to NewEgg for bringing the boxes to market. Also came with new keyboard and mouse.
Cons: No restore disks, but there is a restore partition. I will be putting in larger hard drives and will need to figure out how to reload Windows on the new drives. Pretty sure it can be done, I'll google it...
Other Thoughts: Very good overall value at the price I caught them at!READ FULL REVIEW
