I know I read it, but I am hoping that someone can tell me if I can max out the RAM. Anything is better than 4GB DDR3. I'd switch out the HD for an SSD.

I don't know this one, but I never have problems to upgrade RAM and HDD for any desktop.
Look at the size on the picture, it should be easy job.
There are pictures in newegg website of inside box, you can see there are 2 memory slots.
You can replace the 4G memory with 2 8g Rams.
HDD is in a plastic light blue box, should be easy to pull out and replace with SSD.
Looking further, there are PCIE slots. A low profile video card for ITX should be able to fit in if the power supply allows.
This is a sweet deal for me. Thanks for the post.

I am fairly beginner/intermediate when it comes to upgrading a PC. The most I've ever done is upgrading the memory on an HP laptop. What are the necessary steps to upgrading a hard drive? I've seen on threads before talk of flashing the OS or needing keys to reinstall the OS and that intimidates me. What's the easiest way to upgrade to a SSD and not mess up the HDD/OS? TIA

I have had good luck with EaseUS Todo Backup Free, there is a clone option, a lot of times it will clone the drive with Windows running...not sure how it does it, but works good for me. SSDs have came way down in price, its a night and day difference of speed too if you get a good one.

good deal. Nice specs for everyday use. Aesthetically not great.

Most SSD's come with a license for drive duplication software. As long as the data on the old drive is smaller than the capacity of the new drive, this software makes it super easy. Just plug both in, clone old to new, remove the old one, and you're done. No license keys or software install concerns. I've done it many times.

RAM install is also super easy. If you've done it on a laptop, doing it on a desktop is essentially the same. For simplicity, I would recommend buying 1 or 2 (matched) new sticks so you don't have to worry about timing, using different sticks in parallel, etc.

This comes with a 240watt psu and it's a small case. I'm doubting the PSU is replaceable with a COTS supply. Can anyone confirm this?

Can this actually be upgraded with a graphics card? Doubting the PSU is big enough and if it's upgradeable.

The CPU/mobo (and HD, I guess) are capable, but lots of other upgrades would be necessary.

Add a case and better power supply to that list.

Correct. It won't fit a standard power supply, and also only fits half-size expansion cards (such as GPU's), so anything decent is out of the question.

In my opinion, if you're talking about changing 80% of the PC to do what you want, you're better off starting somewhere else.

This is a Small Form Factor (aka Slim) PC. Expansion cards such as video cards need to be "low profile" (meaning not as deep) in order to fit. There are no low profile GTX 1060 or RX 480 cards.

Last time I checked the fastest low profile card available in the US is the GTX 750 Ti. I think there might be low profile GTX 950 cards sold overseas.

Do these include original Lenovo peripherals?

Don't usually buy refurb, but this could be good for some purposes.
