Might have been nice

OldRN, Newegg
5 December 2013
  • Summary: Didn't mind receiving a bad out of the box refurb laptop. Stuff happens even with new electronics and RMA for replacement is easy at Newegg. Having to pay shipping for returning a faulty product, particularly out of the box, is just a bit insulting. If it had been a new product I would have taken a refund, for that reason alone, and shopped elsewhere.
  • Pros: An inexpensive, basic laptop with decent features for a student doing routine tasks. No risk, RMA replacement easy at Newegg.
  • Cons: Laptop could not see battery. Refurb Windows serial gave error as not being correct for Windows SKU after multiple attempts.

...meh...

chad, Newegg
22 August 2013
  • Summary: I was surprised the unit has so much wear. It is in the same condition (and same model) as discarded laptops I used to recycle and sell on [name of competitor omitted] years ago. Device drivers not loaded so screen resolution was awful until I downloaded drivers myself. Battery is junk. I was considering returning because of poor workmanship and unexpectedly heavy wear, but for $200 it is actually a reasonably good deal with Windows 7 Pro.
  • Pros: Has an upgraded processor (has a sticker that says Centrino, but actually has a Core2 inside).
  • Cons: Has an upgraded processor (will consume a lot more battery and may have an insufficient cooling mechanism).

Rough Shape

Danno, Newegg
18 July 2013
  • Summary: I kind of expected that it would be in rough shape like used and scratched up but to the point where its chipping away, I did not expect.
  • Pros: The laptop works very well. All good with the software.
  • Cons: The laptop case was in rough shape. edge of it was cracked and the piece almost came off but i tried my best to get it stay. A lot of scratches and it does get hot very fast.

Received Broken Merchandise

N/A, Newegg
8 April 2013
  • Summary: I recieved this laptop in February. When charging it the initial time a window popped up and said that the power supply was not strong enough to charge the laptop. I bought several other chargers for it and all said the same thing even though the wattage was increased. I sent it to a local computer shop and they informed me that the power supply port was damaged and this is why it was not charging correctly. It functions fine when I can get it to charge.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Recieved Broken Laptop

Buy Extra Power Cords

CMTorrie "cmtorrie", Amazon
7 September 2010
  • Summary: I received this laptop for work use. At first I was happy with the performance. As time went on, I became very frustrated with it. The first problem is the fact that the power cord fails. I have had to trade my power cord in 4 times in the last year because it has failed. My colleagues have had to do the same. If I had to pay for the power cord myself, I would have spent a lot of money. This is very frustrating. The other flaw is the video.

Not quite what I thought it would be

Raymond Randall, Amazon
24 March 2014
  • Summary: My laptop is performing well at the moment but I was disappointed to find it was quite an elderly windows XP model upgraded to Windows 7 but limited to 32bit performance negating the potential of the hard drive. My checking software also tells me the power supply provided is not the correct one for good screen performance.

tends to overheat and shut itself off

L. Fraser, Amazon
20 November 2013
  • Summary: Just as I said above, it tends to overheat and shut itself off, right when I am in the middle of something. It is so hot that it takes hours to cool off enough to get it to power up again.
