Summary: The laptop works well, looks great and is all that was described. A welcomed surprise, I had purchased an i5 but received an upgrade to an i7, that was much appreciated. I will look for this seller for my future needs,
Summary: Bought two laptops. One worked great the other not so much. I made the mistake of not thoroughly testing both. They both booted fine but one would corrupt the hard drive while just sitting there... Replaced hard drive, ram. Still happening. It has to be something with the motherboard.
Summary: It arrived with no wifi card installed although the description said it had one. Rather than return the unit and fight for weeks, I elected to buy one and install it myself. The unit is super fast, and I am otherwise pleased with it.
Summary: I bought this computer because it had windows 7 and an i5 processor. I've tried windows 8 and 8.1 and always come back to windows 7. As soon as it came, I replaced the 160 GB hard drive with a 1 TB, and replaced one of the 2 GB (it had 2x2) ram sticks with a 8 GB stick.
Summary: Yes, I have learned a valuable lesson about refurbished equipment. There is no such thing as a certified refurbished anything. Basicly these can be used for door jams.
Pros: Absolutely non....
Cons: Wow, I knew better but thought I would try it.. And never got around to testing them when they showed up. One was full of scratches and dirty that would lend me to believe a kid owned it, and the other the speakers can barely be heard.
