Cheap. That processor was released in early 2015 with a benchmark of 2718. Good replacement if someone is still using an old XP or Vista machine for security purposes. Should be fine for everything but gaming.

Not worth the price at this point. We've seen refurbished Ivy Bridge i5-based desktops for less. I've even posted an $85 Celeron G1610 desktop (2,499 Passmark score). I think that deal ended yesterday.

Not so sure. This deal has a higher benchmark processor, double the ram, much bigger hdd, actual gpu rather than integrated. Plus, as you said, the deal you posted is over now and this one is still available. Though the cpu upgradeability might be more limited.

The i3 6100T you posted definitely had a better processor, 8GB of ram, and 1TB HD. But it was $230. The $85 machine had a 250GB HD, and 4GB of ram. Very cheap for the parts, but I don't think it compared to OP's here. For the extra $80, your i3 would be a decent upgrade for someone who likes to have a ton of open files/tabs.

I am not trying to argue here or convince anyone here - just clarifying my point. I realize my reasoning may not be obvious in a short reply. I was comparing this deal to what I have seen in the refurbished market via Newegg. This PC is just not a good value. $130 bucks can buy you better performance, almost any time. You may not get 8GB of RAM or a 1TB hard drive, but I see no point in taking a hit in the CPU performance and paying more money to get more RAM or storage.

Specifically about the $85 Celeron G1610 desktop I made a comparison with: It just happened to be a very recent, if extreme example. Specifically, you could get essentially the same CPU performance (5% lower than the OP's PC) for literally half the price. How is paying an almost 100% premium just to get more RAM and storage here is a good value?

And I won't accept "that deal is over" as an argument here. There are plenty deals, right now, on Newegg that are better values than the OP's PC.

I would much rather have the Celeron than the AMD. The single thread rating on the Celeron is much higher. I've used two AMD machines with this processor and they are slow even for web browsing and daily tasks.

I am looking for an inexpensive desktop (<$250) to run Blue Iris video surveillance software--that's it. If you have a moment and could point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it. I have a 4TB HDD for storage, so included storage space in a non-factor.

This is totally off-topic. I am not familiar with the requirements for that software. If this is accurate:

Choosing Hardware for Blue Iris [ipcamtalk.com]

you might have to spend more than $250 - unless you score a deal from Dell, HP or Lenovo Outlets.

Thanks. I didn't mean to get you thinking about that software--I was just trying to emphasize that I don't need to do anything really intense on the machine. I could just tell you have an eye out for PC deals.

Apparently, that software is pretty CPU-intensive if they recommend a recent-generation i5 or better.

Yeah a 1 TB hard drive and 8GBs of RAM shouldn't be the deciding factor in buying this refurbished PC. For the PC specification challenged, a quick google search would indicate that this system is equivalent to a consumer grade desktop purchased nearly 6 years ago.

For $160, you should be able to find something much better.

Wow... this is a steel! Throw an rx 560 or 1050ti in there and a smaller sad and you have a pretty badass machine that can gaame at 1080p foe well under 500 and even 400 dollars. Heck my last a6 I could play most games o n medium and low or medium high and lower the res to 720. So me of these you can even add faster ram depending on the model and it will automatically recognize and give u the fastest speed (1866 I think for ddr3).

Anyways I have this model with the a8 and my kids love it. I have an rx 560 and a 100 dollar 27 inch freesync monitor at 1080p and I paid double that just 2 months ago and the hard drive I have is 500gb and only 6gb of ram
