    This computer is awesome! I have had it for the last 5 months and it has never failed me once. The finish is not glossy (unlike others) so the computer surface does not attract fingerprints. The speakers surprised me with their power. For the price point ($330 refurbished), the specs are good (AMD Athlon X2 P340-2.2 GHZ, DVD RW, 4 GB DDR3, 4250 HD graphics). The Hard Drive is kind of small (250 GB) but works for average computing. This is a great computer at a better price that I highly recommend.
