Anyone buy a referb/renew PC tower?

This thread has proven once again .... that I am completely and utterly technologically inept ( computer wise) and woefully deficient in anything related to this field . The terminology used might as well be martian . It’s crazy that I actually understand and comprehend more of Arts
( @GetAgrippa ) posts than anything posted in this thread 😳! Might be time to take a class at my local senior citizen center 😂. I mean I did just turn 54 and have had my AARP card a few years now 🤷🏻‍♂️

OK, so I am committed (Or maybe I should be)
Dell 3050 Tower (2017 model)
i5QC 34-16 gen 6 processor (told me it's as fast as the gen 3, i7 I was looking at)
16 GB Ram
512 SSD
Win 10 Pro
4x USB 2.0
4x USB 3.1
VGA for my monitor with also an adapter to/from HDMI/display port.
1 year warranty

I wanted the tower because I don't care about large but didn't want small (SFF)
$495.00 ($519.75 taxed and shipped)
