Reasonable price for i3 refurb?
Feb 19, 2013, 7:00 PM
Is $300 a reasonable price for a Lenovo IdeaCentre H420 7752-XF1 Refurbished Desktop PC - Intel Core i3-2100 3.1GHz, 6GB DDR3, 1.5TB HDD, DVDRW, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit?
Just looking for something basic to replace an ancient computer. Main uses would be Chrome, iTunes and the like, perhaps a tiny bit of photo editing. No gaming beyond solitaire

reasonable price refurb

It's the tiny bit of photo editing which gives me pause. I'm guessing LR4 (or CS6) would run better on the i3. It requires Win 7 64, but I believe I can go from 32 to 64 for free.

Your refurb i3 comp will be many times better than that ancient pentium4 system from 8 years ago.

Actually, the i3 is meant to replace a Dell pentium 4 which is barely usable.

Yeah the system posted by theNOOBbuilder can't really run anything besides MS word.
Get the refub. Dell outlet usually has some good stuff too.

I ordered the Lenovo refurb earlier today. I've heard too many bad things about recent Dells.
