Default $649.99 ... Quad Core, Blue Ray Player, 1TB, 3GB Ram...

I'm very tempted on buying this one... I have absolutely no need really. My PC specs are already pretty pimp, but the Blue Ray Player itself is a couple $100... I'm sure my family could really use it too. What are some positives or negatives here? It is refurbished, but that really doesn't bug me.

Thats an excellent deal if you need a home theatre pc. But as third stated, blueray drives for pc's are pretty affordable now.
Nothing to see here.
