Dell has new systems for 299 and 349 on their website.
No monitor

Why buy used when new is cheaper?

BTW: The Dell in your link weight a TON! 61 lbs to ship!
YIKES!

But it is still a refurb with a 90 day warranty.

You can still beat the price with new and get a one year warranty.
Have you checked the Tiger Direct website yet?
Sometimes they have some really good deals.

If you are intent on getting a refurb, check with computer shops in your area. Sometimes you can get good deals from them.
Going local has an advantage: you can look at the system and you will be able to sit down in front of it and test drive it.

If you go this route, make sure you get the specs.
