Will buy more when the need arises -- great deal on for a home workstation.
There are four low-profile expansion slots so you could jazz it up with a PCI-express video card if better video performance is really needed, and one extra SATA port plus room for another internal hard drive.Although its manufacture date was 2013, the unit I received was pristine, without a scratch or mar and looked equally factory-new inside.
No documentation beyond a single sheet explaining the Win-10 activation procedure, but full documentation is readily available on-line from Dell, and the operating system starts the Edge browser which runs you through a basic set-up routine on first boot.Only gripe I can come up with is that a (very) inexpensive USB keyboard & mouse set was included, and the mouse was basically DOA with some sort of intermittent bad connection inside the mouse.
I'm sure they will replace it on request but I'm not going to bother with even that minor hassle, the "feel" of it is so bad I wouldn't use the thing anyway.
Good value, up and running with no complications--nice to be able to get with older Windows 7 OS.
So I received this item yesterday and immediately out of the box it started doing a start-up repair and would jump back and forth between start-up repair and restarting itself and then eventually gave me a blue error screen.
The packaging says that it's the Microsoft authorized refurbished.
But I don't think a QA test was done because it has not started even one time and it's straight out of the box.
It also sounds like there is a loose screw or part in there because when I was taking it out of the box you could hear it clunking around in there.
