Summary: This laptop is fantastic! If you didn't know that it was refurbished, you would just assume that this was an out-of-the box new PC. The only thing that was not right from the description is the hard drive size. The description says that it is a 160 GB drive, but it was actually a 250 GB drive.
Summary: I bought this to transfer my digital camcorder tapes to DVD. It has a firewire port and a DVD Burner. This worked great right out of the box. No other bells and whistles but it works perfect for tape to DVD transfer and the occaisonal web crawl.
Summary: It was a little more beat up then I expected. It didn't come with any instructions, good thing I have some knowledge of computers. After set up and virus scan (2 days total) it now works fine for what I need it for. Simple internet use and word processing.
Summary: I expected to use this laptop to watch Netflix movies, anywhere in my house. However, I've spent too much time, squinting and straining my ears to be able to see and hear the movie. The volume is turned up to 100%, but in order to hear the audio, I have to be sitting right in front of it.
