Summary: I purchased mine from Discount18 specifically because is came with a backup cd of the XP OS. While the description said it had signs of use, it appeared to be very clean and almost new looking. I bought the laptop just to configure it as a diagnostic machine for my older BMW. After installing the software and plugging in the cable to the serial port in back, I was discovering all sorts of error codes on the car.
Summary: description said 2GB ram, only had 1GB. came with windows xp.i put a spare 2GB memory module in it, and slapped archlinux on it.. it's ok.. decent first computer for a kid..sturdy construction..hundred bucks.. i might throw a solid state drive in it as well..
Summary: A lot of scratches in the cover. The cord is already unsafe because there is a tear on wire to connect to the electric output. Looks like is not Refurbish, show sign of overused. I am not using it right now because I still have a Dell Laptop computer I purchased before and still working good. I plan to bring this Laptop to the Philippines to have this check to have work properly. A have a technician there and the labor is cheap.
Summary: For the money, this is a great computer. It's a little dated but, works perfectly. It would not work with my new wireless printer. This little computer has XP Pro service pack 1. If all you need to do is surf the internet and do some word processing, save some pictures, etc.. it does fine. If you have an older printer that connects with a USB cable it will be fine. If you are a person who has to have the latest, cutting edge, stuff, then skip on this one.
Summary: I am very disappointed by this item. It was advertised as having windows 7 home and coming with a new laptop sleeve and wireless mouse, and instead it arrived with neither of those. What it does have - windows xp and a virus that is impossible to get rid of without completely wiping the computer and starting over. Do now I have to order a new Windows cd myself and wait even longer. I'm angry at the seller for misrepresenting this product.
