#2

is this a good price?


#3

Is this really worth it? What are the biggest risks with a refurbished computer?


#4

Not enough memory for Vista Home…

Just enough for Basic, yuck


#5

looks to be a very good affordable family computer. nothing too extraordinary, but good looking for every day use.


#6

dont ever buy a refurb computer, done it and its a waste of time trust me.


#7

This is shouting Ebay


#8

Gets a 7.2 on CNET. Not bad, I guess. http://reviews.cnet.com/HP_Presario_Media_Center_SR2050NX_Pentium_D_2_8_GHz_1_GB_RAM_250_GB_HDD/4505-3118_7-32096674.html


#9

Would this qualify for a free upgrade to Vista?


#10

You could build something with much more power for about the same price…


#11

Actually Apple’s refurb program is amazing, no problems with them ever.


#12

Hey thanks for making my computer feel old as hell Woot.com


#13

What do I need this for, recently bought the largest laptop out there from you guys and it is a refurb with nothing wrong at all. Maby tomorrow I’ll buy something. thanks woot, good wooting to you all


#14

wow 56K modem!


#15

Its just not worth it because its just not that good. It is your basic internet/word processor/picture storage box that most people buy them for.


#16

Decent computer for the price - but its a Compaq. =\

With refurbished computers, you risk getting dinged merchandise, or a lemon. Usually they “fix” what’s wrong, but the quality of the refurb testing department varies a ton from company to company.


#17

Well, I’ve had a power supply die, a bad cpu fan, well-used hard drives, and one that just didn’t turn on. I’ve had some good ones, too. However, I prefer not to take the risk anymore.


#18

Refurb + Compaq + $350 = no go.

But shoot, its got a 56k modem…


#19

This is a PERFECT home computer for the kids or just email use, or even some mediocre games -counter-strike, WOW, stuff like that. Good price, i got nothing against refurbs, i always worked for me!

This isn’t a bad deal if you are looking for a comp for your kids or the like. The ram is a bit low, but it will work for light to middle of the road use. Too bad I already have 6 comps in my house or I would buy one for one of the kiddos.
