Summary: -Maybe I will return this product. I'm going to try running the battery down to zero and then recharge and see what happens. If that helps this battery situation, I may keep it. It's for someone else anyway.
Pros: It's fast because it has an SSD It's a nice size
Cons: -Windows says to consider replacing my battery. -The battery sticks out the back, unlike shown on newegg.com website. That doesn't improve the looks. -The sound seems to come out the bottom, or the keyboard, or somewhere. Maybe that's to be expected on a small machine.
Summary: I did a fair amount of research before purchasing this Dell - Lenovo was the only other strong contender. I like the Dell's keyboard better as a personal preference. I am extremely happy with this purchase.
Pros: Clean as a whistle, came with nine-cell battery that holds a charge very well, and a brand new charger. First boot was via USB thumb drive to install Ubuntu and take over entire flash drive. Everything was recognized and proper drivers loaded during installation. It's fast - boots up in 7 seconds...
Very Solid Business Class Laptop at a GREAT Price!

Summary: Bought this as a daily use machine for light apps and travel. When you think about what you get: i5, 8GB RAM, 750GB HHD and Win 7 Pro it makes this a steal for the money. Original MSRP on this thing is over $1,000 for less specs. Really feel like a got a good value here.
Pros: Arrived in near perfect condition. No crapware installed. 8 GB of ram and Win7 PRO installed. I replaced the HDD with an SSD and this thing flies. Boot times are under 10 seconds. Solid construction. Got it as a Shell Shocker under $300! Smallest laptop I've owned but love the portability. Will m...
Cons: The over sized battery sticks out a bit. Keyboard not backlit. No USB 3.0
Summary: I wish I could select suppliers of these refurbs. There are some great companies (like this one), with outstanding customer service, and a willingness to get the professional end user what they need to get the job done. I would give 6 eggs if I could. Great job.
Pros: I purchased this computer as a 2nd, more compact consulting testbed. Yet again, I have to say that Newegg was wise in selecting JoySystems as one of their refurb companies: they have done a GREAT job on this. Remember, these are Grade C refurbs, so they will not be perfect. The laptop came with a...
Cons: The battery shipped was good enough, but came with a power supply that worked normal until it decided not to. It was a normal temp. one minute, the next it was VERY VERY hot. It caused at least 4 failures to boot with the computer giving "power supply voltage" errors. Additionally, the wireless c...
Summary: I really like this computer. I didnt at first because it was more annoying to set up than other computers that i have owned. Maybe because the windows 7 that comes with computer is not genuine. Im really not sure why????? Anyhoo after I worked out all the kinks it performs GREAT !!
Summary: Purchased for college bound student. The portability and performance is so good I'm thinking of purchasing one for myself as a good work spare for home.
Pros: Fast shipping Arrived in perfect condition with all components working Small, reasonably light with excellent performance Good upgrades from stock model Clean OS with no junk-ware added Great value
Summary: As always, Newegg's service was great and I am completely satisfied with the replacement they sent me.
Pros: I received the replacement from Newegg promptly. This one shows less wear, has a better keyboard, and shows no signs of motherboard issues. Also, it runs less hot than the previous one, the fan runs less often. As I previously stated, I believe this is a great computer for the price for everyday ...
Cons: The only con is that the image seems to imply there is a webcam. There is not. I guess it is like any refurb...you pay your money and you take your chances.
