Refurbished Dell Optiplex 3020 - $170

I purchased one of the refurbished Dell Optiplex 3020 towers along with keyboard, mouse, and power cord during the sale awhile back.

I'd rather not incur the $50 in fees to return it, so if you're in Kitchener / Waterloo area, I'd love to get it to you for $170.

I have opened the case and removed parts, but have put them all back in and ensured that it boots.
I have not installed anything, and the keyboard is lightly used.

Edit: After some posts notifying that me that I haven't provided enough information, please find info here:

Dell Optiplex 3020 SFF (Small form factor)
Intel i5-4590
8GB 1600 MHz Memory
500GB 7200rpm drive
DVD+/-RW drive

Purchased for $169+tax+shipping, for a total of $201.65 on Apr 21 of this year

Hope this helps - please let me know if you have any questions

What size case? SFF, mid, or full-size?
He clearly mentioned in his post that it is a tower case, not a Small Form Factor

Unfortunately, he didn't mention anything else.

From what I know about the Optiplex 3020

It is a Mini Tower
Haswell CPU, which one is anybody's guess? i5?
4 Gigs of RAM maybe more, he didn't mention anything
500 Gig Hard Drive. This shipped with the bulk of the Optiplex

Not sure how he plans to sell this thing. It is like selling a used car and telling everyone it has 4 wheels

Computer with unknown guts.

I have dealt with several Optiplex line ups from 3010/3020/7010/7020/9010/9020 because they used to be a lot cheaper. Mostly Small Form Factor (SFF) with usually Core i5 CPU. *10 series is 3rd gen, *20 series is 4th gen Intel CPU. There are also rare Desktop (DT) models which use standard microATX motherboards and there are mini Tower model which many times are built with Core i7 CPUs. Basic specs are usually 4GB ram, 320~500GB mechanical HDD.
Either way, very quiet and great computers for non gaming/ video editing general use computer. (but memory depends on OS being used and SSD is a must for my standards these days. I have Chrome OS, Linux, Windows 10 & Hackintosh as well. Popular machine among chrome os & hackintosh community.

Again, I used to buy these things since 2017~ end of 2019 and they used to be around $100~140 for base SFF model. But I would pay little extra for tower models as it can be upgrade like regular computers with standard components.

Not sure what components are installed on sellers tower but if it has atleast 8GB & i7 CPU, it'll be a very decent deal. (But I have almost never seen a 30* series with i7 CPU)

As for the specs, seller just need to enter the service tag to Dell to find out original spec from factory, but best to enter BIOS and look at the first screen to see CPU/RAM/HDD info.

Apologies for the lack of information - it must have been a busy day with me being all over the place and forgetting to input valuable information to sell this thing.

I've updated the OP with computer specs.

This is still available.

I can meet in Kitchener/Waterloo area, or in Hamilton, as I travel there once every few weeks.

Selling for $180 or another reasonable offer
(You save most taxes for the same system)
