I'm looking to purchase a refurbished desktop for less than $100 for my Brother's bithday and I am needing it to be wireless enabled. I am sharing a link with this post of something I have my eye on, but it says WiFi/wireless: Not Included in the specs. Does this mean that it is not wireless enabled? Thank you!

It does have related items. One of them is a wireless networking card. You can either add that to your purchase or go to a store and buy a wireless USB adapter or buy a wireless card elsewhere.

Could I ask one more quick favor? Could someone please take a quick look at any of these $99 dollar offers to see if there is one with wireless. I have to order by midnight.
