- Refurbished, Old Lenovo Desktop PC for $88
Refurbished Lenovo M58-SFF Desktop PC with Core 2 Duo 3.0GHz CPU, 4GB memory, 250GB hard drive, CD/DVD reader/writer drive, and Windows 10 for $88.
Includes a keyboard and mouse, and has 8 USB ports.
According to one reviewer, a VGA and DisplayPort connects up to 2 monitors.
Google searches reveal the 3.0GHz CPU inside the Lenovo M58-SFF as a 9-year old Dual-Core E8400 CPU, a low-performing CPU (about one-fourth the speed of many modern CPUs) but enough power to run many business applications and web-based tools.
