Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Took extra RAM readily.
Bad points:
Cannot add extra cards (graphics etc.), no sockets fitted to motherboard, but tracking and soldered over holes do exist.
No indication of this limitation in sales details.
Can still be used for intended purpose, (schoolwork involving photography and animations) but expansion options limited.

Matthew, Inverness General user

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
Good spec for price
Bad points:
Hard Drive failed when data was added. You expect a refurbed machine to be tested for these kind of faults. Looks like it was just returned to factory settings and resold
