Cheap Computers can be new, discontinued models, refurbished machines, or simply last year’s favorites. Cheap computers that are “refurbished” are those returned for whatever reason, sent back to the manufacturer, checked-out, repackaged, and resold for maybe half price.

For the average home user who doesn’t care about this years bells, whistles, super-duper processors, and bigger disk storage, these computers can be the answer. Use the hundreds of dollars saved for a mp3 player, games, or a comfortable desk chair.

Here are some refurbished cheap computers (priced from Best Buy). Besides the surprisingly low prices, these babies are incredibly powerful.
