Came today as promised and although it states there may be cosmetic scratches due to being refurbished I had no such problem, it looked almost brand new, arrived in a well protected layer of bubble wrap and those air filled pouch things. Set up was quick, load times are fast. Updated all my drivers and checked the internal specs.
For anyone wondering, you will need to change the disc drive if you plan on burning CDs or DVDs as this is only DVD ROM, but at this price who can complain, especially since RWs are so cheap anyway.
Basic gaming is good, stardew valley worked flawlessly (remember to update the graphic drivers and direct x, as well is .net framework and visual basic as this comes as a more or less clean slate) preinstalled with avira antivirus and the wireless adapter is plug in and go, no mucking around.
The pc itself is silent, and generates no noticeable heat. I can't wait to fit it with the graphics card I have ordered, which if you plan to do for hdmi input for gaming or media centre remember it has to be a low profile fit. No urgency to upgrade ram as multitasking is fast, but I will in the future for more demanding tasks.
I recommend this computer highly. Remember as it is ex business it will also be rather economical with power so should also be a bonus.
