    These ex-government desktops from schools. They are crap.

      i used to pick up this stuff from the local tip :>

      I remember using these units at TAFE. They aren't too bad, and are fairly quiet.

    Make sure to check for bulging capacitors if you intend to buy!

    •  

      This. Just replaced twelve just out of warranty at work. Lenovo came to the party pretty easy, but dunno how much luck you'd have with this.

    •  

      But the advert says they are REFURBISHED. Are you saying ozstock are liars, and just cleaned them?

      • +1 vote

        Not sure about Mikinoz, but yes, I'd be willing to say that. And I'd even wager if you asked ozstock what the process of refurbishing involved (without leading the answer, simply asking), they'd say the same.

        •  

          Completely agree Ozstock tend to do the least possible!

    •  

      Are you sure these still have the capacitor issue? I thought they were all P4s.

    •  

      Great scott, a flexed capacitor!

    5yrs or older

    good luck

  •  

    Yes, these are CASES machines from government schools and between 4-5 years old with plenty of use behind them. They should be given away, not sold for this price…..

  • +1 vote

    These are okay but the large area of concern would be the capacitors mentioned above, they will almost definitely be approaching end of life and that should be factored into the price.

    IMO if you really need something right now on the cheap then it'll do but just be aware it may pack up in the near future so if you can hold off I'd probably suggest getting something newer.

    Also NO "XP OS" CD included. So if you have to replace the HDD or corrupt the OS your stuffed having to buy a brand new Retail OS. Even though you already have certificate of authenticity stuck on the PC case.

      You don't have to, get another XP Installation CD will also works. Otherwise, use Linux.

        Hackintosh should run quite nicely on these too! The internals are pretty much current Mac state-of-the-art hardware aren't they…just kidding! :p

    •  

      Any OEM XP Home CD will work. If you've got a computer friend or someone you pay every now and then to help with computer issues, they'll be happy to provide you with one.

    what's that big black box thing behind the keyboard? (mac user)

      That's a vintage 1986 Peter Brock Energy Polarizer! ;)

        I fear many ozbargainer's will not get this. +1 from me :)

        •  

          What, you think I ain't no individual? You think you can fool me?!?

        •  

          Yep, showing my age there! ;)

          Nice Jacko reference of similar vintage tantryl, +1 from me…Oi!!! :)

    This is not a bad deal. Until about 18 months ago, Dell was still selling their Vostro range with E5400 CPUs.

  •  

    What does refurbished mean? Is it just a clean? It is a cheap deal, but I dont think it is a bargain.

  •  

    Not cheap, and certainly not a bargain. Secondhand outdated computer.

  •  

    I'm using one of these as an XBMC media centre and it's very quiet and hasn't skipped a beat. It's an M55p but an 8813-A27/1.8Ghz not 8808-A23/2.4Ghz. I didn't buy it from this supplier but an earlier one mentioned on ozbargain for $140 delivered.

    The only thing I did was put a better video card with HDMI audio (AMD Radeon HD 5450). The card had to be PCI because of limited expansion slots (don't know if this exact model has the same limitation) and passively cooled because of the power supply but I managed to get one from a mob in Sydney over ebay for $70 delivered, so all up it cost me $210.

    I also whacked in a Samsung BD-ROM drive for about $80 delivered and it plays BluRays/1080p no problem as long as I don't have Firefox with a million tabs open in the background. XBMC will play the main Blu-ray movie but not menus, VLC is starting to do menus and Power DVD 9 came with the drive and plays anything (You can call that from within XBMC too).

    I use a logitech wireless mouse and keyboard and sit the receiver on top of the TV for better reception using a USB extension.

    One slight issue I have is that it won't boot with my Seagate 4TB drive (that has all my media on it) plugged in because the BIOS is a bit old. I just unplug the power from the drive and plug it back in once the Windows startup picture displays. I mainly set it to standby after a few hours of non-use and only have to reboot every now and then.
