  • A. No. This computer has a 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet which is considered wired. You can, however, purchase a PCI-express or a USB wireless modem for this computer. I would recommend a g or n rating card due to the age of manufacturing. ex: 802.1g/n

For what I was willing to pay, I got the deal of a lifetime. I hadn't upgraded my computer in about 9 years and had a Windows XP Home Edition desktop that I was ready to throw out the window. Compared to that, this is a blessing. The computer runs smoothly, like it's brand new! I have two complaints, the keyboard that I received with it (which I'm currently typing on) came with some cosmetic damage, which clearly does not affect my using it, but was disappointing to realize was there. Also, the fan on the computer runs kind of loudly. I have plans to dust out the computer and hope that solves this problem.

My purchase was unfortunately "DOA" had to return it to Walmart for a refund, I took a refund rather than reordering as it was to be a gift for a friend and didn't have time to wait for a replacement. As usual the return process at Walmart was painless. I have bought refurbs before and have been pleased unfortunately this one was more dinged up than usual. It booted up to windows startup and then just quit and would not boot up again, I checked for loose connections and all were tight, (I was surprised to find IDE instead of SATA connections) the CPU fan sounded like an airplane prop at full throttle causing me to wonder if the CPU overheated at startup....Just one of those things I guess. Would have to give this purchase a --1 STAR Note* It was apparantly a much older machine as it didn't have SATA drives and had a 3.5" floppy drive The last 3 I purchased had SATA drives and no floppy drive and worked great. As I said I've had good luck with refurbs before this time my luck ran out :o( Don't let my experiance this time discourage you from refurbs most of the time they are excellent buys.

It works great for my needs. I have watched several Netflix movies on it with no problem. I didn't realize it needed speakers as my old IBM computer had them built in. I used headphones for a few days until I could get some speakers, but other than that, I have no complaints about it at all. Simple to set up. Very happy with the purchase.

Some of this was my fault(not reading all that was included in the desktop) because there was no wifi card, etc. Also it seemed if I looked at it cross-eyed, it would reboot!. On the plus side as far as WM is concerned, as usual, your CS was tops. All problems were remedied and it was returned. Seems I have done this a couple times of late, not being thorough enough prior to hitting the "buy" button. I apologize, but say thanks for covering my backside. Lots of what I do at WM is for a non-profit shelter and it helps to have your quality of CS, like a Maine firm, LLBean! Again, thanks.

I own several computers that work great for everyday use but I needed one with particular system requirements to run "Virtual DJ" software with a MIDI dj controller.I couldn't afford to puchase a new laptop at the prices they sell for so I found this refurbished pc that met & exceeded the system requirements for my application. It came with everything I needed except for a monitor which luckily I had a spare. I am extremely happy with the quality,price & performance of this computer. Walmart once again provided a solution so I can have exactly what I need at an affordable price. I highly recommend this option if you have a similar situation.

Received the computer.Followed instructions to set it up. Never got through the boot-up. Got stuck in a loop. Ultimately received an error message that several critical drivers were missing. Attempted to use the rescue disk (partitioned on the hard drive), but screen went black and fan ran at high speed for 5 hours with no reloading of software. Had to unplug. Bright side is, I took it into my local store today for a full refund and, after they figured out how to process it in, I received the full refund.

This IBM desktop did not work out of the box, I hooked it up the keyboard and the mouse did not work. It looked like someone had droped it. Good thing i did the store pick up, i just took the junk back to walmart they gave me a refund. I tried to call customer service no luck i was on hold for over an hour when some picked up the phone call droped. This was not walmart customer service it was for the computer the people who refurbish them.

The computer does work correctly, but, as expected on something this old and in this price range, it is very slow. The constant noise is the part that I did not expect and do not like. It sounds like a large industrial fan, running constantly. My son got one of these refurbed computers and it works great, my experience has not been as good. I use it every day, and every day I am less impressed with it.

I've always been hesitant to buy refurbished machines but in the last year I bought two for my office and they were great and saved me a lot of money. This one was funny because it is an old IBM and it even has a floppy disk slot. But it works fine for my kids internet browsing, email and a few games. Why would you spend more? I love it but it looks old as heck.
