Summary: I sent this computer back three times for repair. The problem was not fixed the first two times and now this third time they have had the computer for over a week and no one, and I mean no one including supervisors has an update for me.

Pros: size, hard drives, screen
Cons: touchpad sucks! It is extremely loud and is impossible to use around other people with out driving them nuts. It makes a loud clicking sound when pressed on.

Pros: Nice and light system. But since it wasn't fully functional, hard to make a fair judgement here.
Cons: Was shipped this refurbished system with three problems:
