Refurbs are not for everyone.
#1 - they are hit and miss. You WILL get a lemon occasionally.
#2 - they are typically low in memory. Many only have the very minimum required to boot Win 10 - the link goes to a 4GB RAM system... let me tell you how much of a headache 4GB is on Win 10. Good luck.
#3 - they all have outdated processors, ok for very simple use but in conjunction with the low physical memory... it is gonna be slow.
In a nutshell, if you simply cannot afford a computer... then roll the dice and buy one. But honestly... you will do better with a Chromebook than one of these.
The specs are listed. It's not a Mystery Computer.

As I said in the OP, it's fine for browsing and posting on shitty message boards.

Never had a problem with my existing PC...

Most popular computer model in history. Great machine for it's day. Although I'm more of an Atari guy.
Commodore 128 was better.
Yes, because it was backwards compatible with the C64.
Well there is that.... :D
My first computer was a C128... loved that computer.
It was so much more than a gaming computer, a reputation that Commodore couldn't shake.
You take a C128 with the 1000s of available programs, superior memory allocation, vastly superior graphics than any other computer at the time - and it beat the living shit out of IBM clones. Not even close.
It could do 5 times that of a DOS machine, twice as fast and twice as cheap.
