What version Win 8?

Overstock has this model (also refurb) for $370. Not sure about shipping. Seems like a decent deal.

Amazon has it for $470. Nowhere says what version of Win8.

From the specs: Genuine Windows 8 (64-bit)

This is not a refurb like the one you posted, but a reconditioned PC. Keep in mind the difference: http://www.ebay.com/gds/What-is-Reconditioned-or-Refurbished-/10000000004614466/g.html

Woot is selling computers that are better than my current setup for half the price I paid. It might be time to upgrade the ole gal

What size is the power supply?

300W max

Win 8 devalues it considerably.

Thanks and YES, I am blind…LOL

Would this be a good machine to replace my old Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4ghz machine that has 4gb ddr2 ram with? I’d throw a video card in and use it to play games and stream on a TV.

I already have this video card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814129232 in the old machine and it plays most newer games at pretty high settings, but would I see a performance bump moving up to more and faster ram and a newer chip?

Seems to be a better deal than the other PC that’s popped up a few times in the last few days: http://www.woot.com/offers/hp-quad-core-desktop-with-1-5tb-hd-3

The integrated graphics and audio seems better to someone (aka me) who doesn’t know about computers. Am I correct in this thinking?

Does this come with a warranty? Newegg shows a 90 day warranty.

“reliable performance” … this is one of AMD’s APU chips - it’s not exactly a speed demon. Decent for Web Browsing, Word Processing and similar - would not be suggested for gaming.

No, but to many people it won’t make a difference. Having a dedicated audio and video essentially takes a load off of the central processing unit, which is doing all of the work if things are integrated. You’ll only really notice it if you’re using a bunch of CPU on audio/video (i.e. gaming, HD streaming, etc.).

Sorry, I meant in terms of the other computer that’s been popping up on Woot (and what I was waiting to pop up again). It seems like this version has superior integrated audio/graphics compared to that one. This one has .5TB less storage, but that doesn’t make much difference to me.

Woot shows 90 days on the main page as well.

I bought the rebranded “Famous Maker” (HP) 6 core on Moofi a couple months ago and am super happy with it. Also bought a HP quad core refurb from Woot a few years ago and it’s a great system as well. Ten-fifteen years ago I really disliked HP’s, but they’re serving me well now (I do usually end up upgrading the wimpy power supplies though.)
