    Comes with a 64 bit version of Windoze pro.
    Being a refurb I expected a few scratches and scraps on the case but none at all the only thing I see is the shadow of a sticker inside next to the Intel & HP stickers.

    Boots fine has a refurb Win 7 product key ahhh for the good old days of Win 95/98/ME :( I will wait a few weeks to load Linux for dual boot mode or load Linux only and make sure I burn it in for hardware issues to make sure I don't void the one year warranty.

    May even install a different drive and keep the win drive as is.
