Default VERY good computer for working from home for under $200

I wasn't sure what category to put this under but I figured that this section would be most likely. Mods feel free to move it. I won't be offended.

My husband just bought a refurbished desktop for light gaming and after spending a few hours on it myself, it dawned on me that it would make a GREAT computer for working from home. It is $99.99 for the following specs:

* Processor: 1.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (UPGRADE AVAILABLE)
* Memory: 1GB DDR2 (UPGRADE AVAILABLE)
* Hard drive: 80GB (UPGRADE AVAILABLE)
* Optical drive: DVD-Rom
* Graphics: Integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3000
* Audio: Integrated
* Networking: Ethernet
* Ports: 8 x USB 2.0, 1 x VGA, 1 x audio-in, 3 x audio line-in, 1 x parallel, 1 x serial
* Included items: Computer system, and power Cord

LINK to computer

We personally bought the upgrade to a 2.13Ghz processor for $20 and then we bought RAM (another 2gb), a bigger hard drive (500gb) and a video card on Newegg. Total including shipping was $200. We added a 20" LCD monitor and it is a surprisingly fast and powerful machine. We can play 90% of the new games out there, run Adobe CS5, stream HD on Youtube and so much more that I didn't expect out of this cheap refurb machine.

If you have any questions or concerned, let me know. I am NOT affiliated with this site whatsoever. I am just very happy with my purchase and thought I'd share it with my fellow telecommuters.

"Garage Sale" - Personal items to sell or trade - WAHM Forums - WAHM.com
That's where this is supposed to go, I think, just so you know where it is

Or possibly in the "Check this out" section. Check this out - WAHM Forums - WAHM.com

OP thank you for this- I'm sure several of us will benefit from the info.

I'm not selling it though. It's something I found and wanted to share with other telecommuters. Thus, I chose this section.

That sounds more like it. If no one complains though, I'll just leave it here. I wish there was a "home office" section on here like on WPLH. The Telecommuting Moms section seems like the catch-all for so many topics that don't have their own section.

How well do refurbished computers work? I have never had one.
