Confirmed purchaser Design or photo editing

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
None
Bad points:
would not connect to a monitor, tried 3 leads and 2 monitors. Retailer replaced, but had to wait for this one to get back to base before another sent. 2nd one had exact same fault, plus no internal light and something rattling around inside. Doesn't anyone check that these work before sending them out? Retailer suggested not to get another as they probably all had the same fault. So returned it and went out and bought one. Conclusion - you have to be desperate to buy a refurb from this PC company, not in this world.

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Good spec for the price
Bad points:
Absolutely massive- looked like something Charles Babbage would use. VGA port had been disabled and then the graphics card failed.
