Summary: I bought this computer for my daughter-in-law when her son had poured hot chocolate on her old laptop. The computer works fine. It does not come with a camera which is also fine. I was unaware that it was a 2009 system and the video card is obsolete and crashes the system.
Pros: I like the fact that it still has S vidio output and I can put a large harddrive in it
Cons: Not impressed with the last 2 I have purchased, have had problems with them. The first was missing parts and the second one had a bad dvd drive and Keyboard.

Cons: Could not activate Windows 7. After runaround with Newegg & HP, Microsoft indicated that that the refurbisher shipped laptop with a Windows Pro product key, but loaded Windows Home on machine. Time is money & I spent way too much of it on this.
Cons: The LCD screen has a "sweet spot" in the middle when looking at it. If you slightly move to the side, top, or bottom, then the image fades away.

Summary: Chatted with customer service and am having it shipped back (at my expense - $19) for repair. I will see how it is when it returns or is replaced. Hopefully they actually look at the machine before sending.
Pros: Laptop functioned fine - fresh version of windows installed. Easy to load other software/ drivers to be up and running.
Cons: I'm sorry but Refurbished to me means open box, returned item, ect.... This laptop was clearly USED. It came with 2 missing feet, cracked plastic where screen locks closed, and there is a blemish on the screen. Looks like you could wipe if off but it was on the other side of the plastic coating.
