ThinkCentre Desktop PC M57P Core 2 Duo E6550 (2.33 GHz) 4GB 160 GB HDD Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: The machine is fine. Cheap, good enough for office work.

Cons: Advertised as having Windows 7 Pro. Has a Windows 7 Pro license sticker on the case. Actually installed? Windows 7 Home Premium. Quality assurance fail. Thanks for the extra work to get that sorted out, kind of defeats the purpose of buying a cheap refurb if I have to sink man hours to get it right.

HP Compaq Desktop PC 6005 Pro (SH552UP#ABA) Athlon X2 3.4 GHz 8GB 1 TB HDD Windows 7 Professional
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Inexpensive, comes with 64-bit Windows 7, no bloatware installed, plenty of RAM, decent processor.

Cons: Hard drive died after a month, no DVI or HDMI.

Other Thoughts: For a couple hundred bucks this is a perfectly fine home office machine. Don't bother trying to do any kind of serious gaming with it, but if you're looking for a basic box to run Office, browse the Internet, and some light graphics work, this should do it.

As mentioned above, the hard drive quit on me after about a month. Gave me a good excuse to throw an SSD in there and now it's super peppy (and even quieter). If it was a new, expensive machine I'd gripe about the drive failure, but what do you want for a cheap refurbished machine? It happpens.

Would buy again.
