Don't know much about this computer itself. However I believe that this is the company that I bought my desktop from last year maybe. I don't think I've had a better computer. and I called them right after I ordered the computer because I forgot to upgrade the RAM or something and they were SUPER helpful with that, no problems at all. I also liked their choice of "extra" software that came with it, and it was missing some of the more annoying bloatwear that tends to show up on new windows computer.

Hello Wooters. My name is Andy and my company is offering this fine computer today. For less than $200 bucks, I think its the best computer deal on the web right now. It's an Elite series with decent specs, new Logitech Keyboard & Mouse, and a new legit license for Windows 7 Premium. We're 1 of 18 Microsoft Authorized Refurbishers in the country and are held to the tightest standards in the industry. It comes with a year warranty too. If you have any questions, give us a call at 1-855-BLAIRTG or reply to this post. Thanks!!

What is the speed of the hard drive? 7200 rpm or 5400 rpm?

Can you say which 3.0gHz Core2 Duo? E6850 (4M Cache, 3.00 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB), E7600 (3M Cache, 3.06 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB), E8400 (6M Cache, 3.00 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB), or something I missed entirely?

Ok so now I am relying on our in-house geeks...should I buy this for a 14 yr old that only does word processing, google searches, and YouTube videos? I value your advice. Thanks

Yes, this is a good computer for most users. Windows 7 along is $80. The hardware is not the latest but more than fast enough for everyone except gamers. The hardware in ex-business use computer is better than home computers.

How much extra would it cost for 8G of memory and a 500G disk drive?

Picked one up, not newest tech, but should replace a very slow AMD single core (in which the hard drive died) for my Dad. 4GB is the deal breaker here, not many others at that price with 4GB and a year warranty. They sell a Dell 755 on their website with the same price except slower processor (by an entire gigahertz). This is a good deal.

Did you add on the wireless N USB Adapter or the wireless N Router? Is it worth the added cost?

Got mine delivered yesterday. Haven't booted up off the HDD yet but I did pull it out to make an "out-of-the-box" image and the disk read fine. Blair does have a nicely organized document included with the computer on how to return to a "stock" slate, and the Win7 restore DVD is also in the box. Imaging the drive is just something I always do out of habit. While the drive was imaging I did boot it off a USB thumb drive with Ubuntu 12.04 and didn't see any problems there. So far the only mark against Blair (and it's a minor one) was that the outside of the unit was a little dusty, but the inside still appeared pretty clean. At this point I would say I'd be confident with buying from them again, even though I'm still yet to boot up off the installed Win7. It's looking that good so far. Thanks to them too for getting back to me in this comment thread to indicate which CPU was included in the PC, so I could figure out where I would be in relation to the one that was being replaced.
