Dell OptiPlex 790 Mini Tower - Intel Core i5-2400 3.1GHz, 8GB Ram, 1 TB Hard Drive, DVDRW, Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: First run with a Refurb PC (also purchased a - DELL Desktop Computer 780 Core 2 Duo E8400 (3.00 GHz) 8 GB DDR3 1 TB HDD Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit - Refurb). Machine inside and out looked virtually brand new!! Very clean install of Windows 7 Pro and virtually NO bloatware!! Runs quiet! Plenty of USB 2.0 slots. Room to expand HD, PCI slots. Super stable Windows 7 pro! You CANNOT beat the price for what you get!!!

Cons: NO USB 3.0, limited to VGA for monitor connection.

Other Thoughts: Was pleasantly surprised how 'new' looking the machine is...both inside and out. Did not come with instructions except from Refurb manufacture. Window 7 Pro was already installed and ready for setup out of the box! Easy Windows Authorization. Has original Manuf UPC, original Key, and refurb Key for easy parts tracking/updating/replacing if needed. Mine was set up more recently than my other Refurb PC I purchased (see above)...setup 10/2015 and I purchased Black Friday weekend so the updates went much quicker on this PC. It is also refreshing to not have a ton of bloatware...especially you see with the windows 7 home editions.

I also purchased a new monitor (ASUS VN289H Black 28" 5ms (GTG) HDMI Ultra-Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor ,300 cd/m2 ,ASCR 80000000:1 (3000:1) Built-in Speakers, Tilt Adjustable). I will more than likely install a Vid card that has HDMI as the larger screen doesn't look crisp with a VGA cable. There is plenty of room to expand HD space (possibly a SSD) and a few PCI slots avail. The power supply is only 450w so I will most likely purchase a midgrade Vid card that does not require a lot of power.

Overall this seems like a great purchase...especially for the rock bottom price! Will definitely look into refurbs in the future...especially this company.

Ill report back in 6 months or so give an update

DELL Desktop Computer 780 Core 2 Duo E8400 (3.00 GHz) 8 GB DDR3 1 TB HDD Intel GMA 4500 Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: First run with a Refurb PC. Machine inside and out looked virtually brand new!! Very clean install of Windows 7 Pro and virtually NO bloatware!! Runs quiet! Comes with Keyboard and mouse. Plenty of USB 2.0 slots. You CANNOT beat the price for what you get!!!

Cons: Monitor connection is limited with VGA only.

Other Thoughts: This is my first experience with a refurb PC. Purchased this for my son as his 1st computer (7 1/2 yr old). Came with a trial Anti Virus, winzip, Word Perfect suite...so it is almost ready to use of of box once mouse, keyboard, monitor is connected. The case included the original Manufacture UPC, Original Windows key and Refurb Windows key so you can find parts much easier if needed. The windows install was very clean, activated right away and only had to download the more recent updates (mine was set up in 04/2015 - I purchased black Friday weekend).

It is also refreshing that it was not bogged down with a bunch of bloatware...maybe it due to windows 7 pro install vs the home version or the refurb company purposely left it clean. Either way I was very pleased to not have to spend hours uninstalling bloat.

I also purchased this ( 2 x D-Link DWA-162 USB 2.0 Wireless N900 Dual Band USB Adapter) for connection to my WIFI and it worked great! I may look into purchasing a midgrade vid card if the graphics look sub-par due to VGA connection.
