Default Wondering..

I just bought this computer http://www.bestbuy.ca/catalog/prodde...gon=&langid=EN

and its refurbished , built in wireless, 4 gb ram , slim , 500gb harddrive for 400 bucks and 471 bucks with tax since i paid for shippin

I really could care less about the graphics card because I don't play alot of games but wanted to know if I got a good deal since a brand new one costs 670 plus tax..

.

Slimlines are horrible for upgrading, but if you don't plan on upgrading, they're fine.

Exclamation Re: Wondering..

Hope it's good.. Just bought a 20 inch LG monitor .. I don't wanna have any problems with this PC at all.. I like how it has wireless because I will need it since i have a wireless modem and another PC.

Does anyone on these forums have a slimline and how good has it done for you?

Looks like a good deal. Dual core CPU, 4GB of memory, 500GB hard drive, wireless capability and Vista installed.

As others have noted, a refurb is usually no more than a cleaned up return that somebody didn't like or it may have had a faulty part that was replaced. They are normally tested before being put up for sale. It does have a 90 warranty that will cover you if anything goes wrong.
