Summary: Needed a small but reliable computer and was a little bit worried about buying refurbished, but the price was just too good. The computer works great. It has a couple little quirks, for instance,1.it will only accept the password for the administrator login when it first boots up, if it goes to sleep and I wake it up, it no longer recognizes the password. and 2.
Summary: Pros: Runs large programs like Matlab and Photoshop quickly and easily. Battery life is give or take 4 hours. Good computer for everyday use. Cons: Webcam is not as good quality as reported. Microphone is very bad and has a lot of feedback. Small particles get stuck under keys. Keyboard stopped working randomly, after determining it was some sort of user account problem, I just made a new account and it worked again. good for the price.
Summary: Have had it for about a month and like everything about it with one, maybe major, exception---an incredibly short battery life. I charge it fully and can't seem to get more than 2 and a half hrs on this thing. It's not such a big deal for me as I use it as a desktop, mainly, but that could be a drawback for others.
Took forever to get it, and once it came it was defective

Summary: First it was sent via a unprofessional and poor shipping company that delivered it to the wrong door and did not get a signature for it (who leaves a computer at someone's door without making sure it's in the right hands?). Suggestion, if you're getting something expensive delivered, make sure it's through a reputable delivery company like UPS not Ensenda who lost the computer.
Summary: I needed an updated laptop that could handle my graphics programs that wasn't outrageously expensive and this fit the bill. It was easy to set up and so far trouble free. I especially like the keyboard. For whatever reason it just feels right with the size of the keys and the sensitivity. Anyway, pretty happy here.
Summary: I needed a replacement for my Dell notebook and this was what I chose. So glad I did. It is fast, has a huge hard drive and starts up quick. The price was affordable and the i5 is definitely the switch I needed to make. The built in webcam works great with Skype. Would definitely recommend this laptop to anyone who needs affordability and functionality. Oh, and the weight is much lighter than other lappies that I've owned. One happy camper here!
Summary: I've had this laptop about a month now and so far I'm fairly impressed. It's lightweight and fast- the I5 processor makes internet searching and running multiple programs a breeze. The keyboard is very user friendly and the screen is easy to read. The only negative thing I can say about it is that the dvd drive tends to stick a bit and you have to hit the release button a few times to get it to open.
