Purchased this item because I needed something small and easy to use for my mother. It came very well packed in bubble rap and Styrofoam bits. The PC did have a black bar on the right hand side when you plug it in to a monitor but dissipated after I upgraded it to Windows Vista (W7 won't run smoothly)and the PC itself does show signs of wear and tear. I would recommended for a cheap replacement or a family/office PC. If you are thinking of buying this go ahead but Please ask seller to use royal mail as it is sent with DPD which I have had nothing but problems with since the purchase. I wasn't in and DPD claimed they left a calling card when they did not. Had to wait an extra weekend to finally be delivered. ind if you are thinking or purchasing.
This refurbished computer is great for the price. Tower or desktop? Not sure. Desktop it you need to play cd disc. Fault code when I switched it on but fortunately techie friend knew what to do. Otherwise I'd be phoning IT support.
