Haha! That’s a blast from the past! I still got mine, fully functional, lots of controllers, light guns, and more.

Just FYI, you can backup your legit games and play them on this without having to mod the console at all. There’s a large catalog of fun stuff that was on Dreamcast!

I didn’t have a bunch of stuff but I have some goodies in a box in storage. I wonder if my Chao are still alive…

You guys missed your chance to take in tons of sales back in September for the 20th anniversary of the console launch.
The Dreamcast will always have a special place in my heart, still have mine kicking around with MvC 2, Resident Evil Code Veronica, Power Stone, Crazy Taxi, Ready 2 Rumble and a few others.
Just remember you need a VMU to be able to save your games.

Does this use the original Sega Dreamcast electronics and hardware circa 1999-2000, or is this a newer “retro” build, as is popular among classic computers and home game systems (C64, Atari, TI, etc.) that uses newer processors and board design for emulation?

Sorry, we don’t have that information. It’s this item on Amazon:

So is renewed just a different term for refurbished or does it mean something else completely?

Renewed is the term Amazon uses for refurbished. These are from Amazon.

They can be open-box or pre-owned (used), but supposedly refurbished and tested.

“The inspection and testing process typically includes a full diagnostic test, replacement of any defective parts, and a thorough cleaning process carried out by the supplier, or by Amazon. The products have no visible cosmetic imperfections when held 12 inches away. The products may be packaged in a generic box and come with the accessories expected for a new product, with exceptions, if any, mentioned on the product detail page.”
