Our 10 year old Win XP had become very slow and outdated and when MS announced they will no longer support XP we knew we had to replace our aging computer, but we did not really want an iPad or a tablet.
We did not want Win 8 and so our search revealed Wal-Mart sells refurbished Windows 7 Desktops. We wanted storage and RAM: With Win 7 Pro, 1TB hard drive, 4GB RAM and a Super fast processor, the Dell GX740 seemed the ideal choice coming in at only $258 w/free site to store shipping - much less than buying a brand new one! No brainer for me.
We opened the box, examined and inspected the CPU (there were a few minor blemishes on the case, but I was most interested in performance, willing to overlook a couple battle scars knowing all new parts were inside) and after following the enclosed easy to understand instructions and connecting it to 19" HD TV, using the included mouse and keyboard, we were up, running and connected to our printer and the internet in less than 30 minutes!!!
It's been running 24/7 for over a week with no problems. I love Win 7 because it recognized all my devices for easy setup and my wife loves it because this computer is so fast and easy to use.
If you are a first timer or looking to replace your existing setup this is the most "bang for your buck" you'll find. Highly recommended!!
