Please add "reconditioned" to the title, although if these happen to originate from Dell Financial Services, "used" would be more accurate.

According to DFS, they "refurbish" computers by inspecting them.

There are so many of these old refurb Core 2 Duo desktop systems for sale...
If this is the T9300 then it is 8 years old.

The best things here is that they are Windows 7 64 Pro and have a 1 year warranty which is rare in refurb computers.

The monitor kind of makes it worthwhile, for those who need a complete system.

It might be a good short-term solution for maybe another 3-4 years, for people who really can't spend any money on a more modern system.

That said, I got an i5 3rd gen system with Win 10, 8 Gb mem/1 TB HDD off eBay in June for $128 (but without monitor). That system will last a lot longer. The extra $30 or so is absolutely worth it to me.

Having personally purchased seriously defective Dell "refurbished items" in the past, I think their inspections consists of simply opening the shipping box to make sure there's something inside.  

As an added bonus, when you do have a problem you get to deal with Dell tech support.  I wouldn't wish that on anyone.
