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: 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.
Summary: What I received: Laptop and generic charger (works awesome) Initial impression upon opening box: The laptop had clearly been cleaned professionally. But it also showed clear signs of use but that's to be expected from a refurbished product.
Summary: I bought this computer for my mom as a mother's day gift and she loves it! It is a very study laptop and the Windows 7 is the best version for my mom. She uses it several hours a day for watching videos and online shopping and has no problem whatsoever with it!
Summary: 128GB SSD is the source of the power of the small laptop! The size is right for business man. And the price is good. This laptop is solidly built so you dont need to take too much care about it. The backlit keyboard is very comfortable to type on. 3 USB ports is a PLUS.
