'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.


Get a powerful renewed desktop PC with peripherals for under $500

This Lenovo desktop setup has everything you need to get started, including a monitor, mouse, and keyboard.
Written by StackCommerce, Partner

While laptops are great for getting work done on the go, a powerful desktop with a big screen is what you want at hand when you need to get an intensive job done with no delay. Unfortunately, they can be pricey beasts, which makes a unit renewed by an authorized refurbisher such a great deal. And now, you can get a powerful workstation PC at an affordable price: Enter this renewed Lenovo ThinkCentre M92P.

This PC has an Intel quad-core i5-3470 Processor, 16 GB of DDR3 RAM, a DVD drive, a 2TB hard drive and a new 16GB flash drive. That should be plenty of storage capacity and horsepower to get you through your usual daily tasks, such as web browsing and content consumption. There are four USB 2.0 ports and another four USB 3.0 ports to support all your peripherals.

Speaking of peripherals, this bundle includes a brand new keyboard and mouse, as well as a new 23.6-inch 1080P VSEVEN monitor. On the program side, this PC ships with Windows 10 Professional, so there's no need to purchase a license separately.

This computer was originally designed for heavy corporate use, and it's been renewed by a Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher (MAR) with components of a higher quality than is typical in retail models right off the shelf. Every component is tested for full functionality, so you can expect years of reliable performance. Lastly, the exterior has been restored to a like-new condition, so there are little to no visible signs that it was previously used.

It could serve as a great work computer for running a business, doing online skills training, managing your investments or keeping around as a family computer for your kids. And it will be delivered with all cables included, so you can use it right out of the box. 

Get this renewed Lenovo ThinkCentre M92P PC Desktop Computer today while it's available for just $465 or 39% off. Need a bit more processing power? You can step up to a Lenovo ThinkCentre M900 Desktop Computer PC — featuring upgrades like a 6th generation Intel Core i5 and 16GB of DDR4 memory — for just $138.60 more.
