HP Pro 6305 Desktop Computer with 3.4GHz AMD A4-5300B Processor (Refurbished)
Combining either 4GB or 8GB of RAM and a speedy dual-core processor, this desktop computer from HP is built to handle a home office’s needs without the risk of lag. On top of that, a grand total of 10 USB ports make it easy to charge smartphones and tablets, attach an external hard drive, plug in flash drives, and add peripherals such as the included keyboard and mouse.
Windows 10 Professional
Windows 10 Professional meets the demands of business-minded users with a suite of productivity and security software. Keep calendars and emails organized with the Cortana digital assistant, take notes directly on webpages with Microsoft Edge, and leave the office with peace of mind knowing that your data is safely secured under multiple layers of digital security. And if you forget to do something before heading home, you can remotely log on to your work computer to tie up loose ends.
Ample Storage Space
A spacious hard drive offers plenty of room for large computer programs, saved game files, and multimedia storage. A single terabyte (TB) can hold up to 17,000 hours of music—enough to play your library nonstop for almost two years without ever repeating a song—or 310,000 photographs, the equivalent of one photo every hour, every day, for more than 35 years. Even if you opt for the 500GB option, you’ll still have ample space for your media.
Speedy Data Transfers with USB 3.0
A USB 3.0 SuperSpeed port transfers files to and from your computer at more than 10 times the speed of USB 2.0, which is especially helpful when you have a gigantic project on a flash drive, or you want to backup all of your files to an external hard drive. If your connected device uses USB 2.0, the port can still move bits and bytes with no sweat at 2.0 speeds, thanks to its backward compatibility.
DVD-RW Optical Drive
Backup and transfer your data with ease using a DVD-RW drive, which not only plays DVDs, but lets you create your own. After writing your music, movie, and media files to a rewritable DVD, you can view them on a TV, transfer them to another computer, or keep them in storage as an emergency backup. DVD-RW drives are compatible with the following discs: CD-R, CD-RW DVD-R, and DVD-RW.

When iconic company HP was born in 1939, it was not in a gleaming laboratory or during a late-night study session at a prestigious university. It was in a 12’x18’ garage that contained only a workbench and a used drill press. University friends Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard sold audio equipment to Disney (which used it during Fantasia production) and became HP soon after. Their humble garage is now marked with a plaque bearing the title “Birthplace of Silicon Valley.”
HP’s innovations laid the groundwork for the Valley’s surge in technological advances. Between the creation of the first handheld computer, which connected to printers and cassette drives, and development of speedier 64-bit processing technology currently used by brands like Apple and Microsoft, HP cemented itself as an architect of current tech trends like the tablet and smartphone. It’s a community-conscious company, too; HP has donated to charity since 1940 and offers free recycling for all electronics, regardless of brand, at Staples.
