Summary: Attractive, solid, quick. Intel QM67 Chipset, i-5 CPU, 8G RAM, & SATA6 SSD: REALLY QUICK STARTUP & good performance. "Outdated" express card slot has USB3 adapter in it. And the really attractive part---it costs in the hundreds not the thousands. Everything is shoehorned in, so it only fits an extra thin HDD or SSD like Sandisk.
Summary: I have (absolutely) no idea where they came up with the $,2016 price, since I built one up with the EXACT same spec's and it came up to $1,644. It should also be worth mentioning that this laptop comes with a 3 year warranty. The 256GB MBA that they are comparing (above), will be about $1850 with a 3 year warranty. Toss in the Ethernet, HDMI, VGA ports that this comes standard with and what accessories you would need to buy with that MBA, you're looking at about $1950.
Summary: I bought this as a refurb because my previous laptop became practically obsolete. I'm not into technology at all and had to have advice to choose this one, as I wanted Windows 7, a system I was used to. I've been very pleased with it so far. Had to have a friend set it up and the main things for me are pretty basic.....the speed, clarity of screen and the large keys, all making it easy to use.
Summary: very satisfied with product. quality is very good and as described on the site. few minor dents on the outer cell of the computer that are not that important, i think. the computer is great, powerful. a happy customer.
