I purchased this refurbished only because I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a desktop. I mainly use is for iTunes. My old desktop was so outdated, that I couldn't update iTunes anymore. So far it's doing its job. Setup was a breeze. Connecting to the Internet was simple and it seems to work fast enough. The only complaint is that it makes a loud noise when reading a CD or DVD, but it is refurbished. I don't use the drive that much for it to be too cumbersome.
