Older buisness class laptop is the way to go.
3 October 2013
Summary: I have used one of the Evo N610c laptops for 9 years. When mine quit I looked at others, in the end I purchased a used unit and exchanged HHD and battery. I could not be happier. I do not do much music or video downloads so the unit works out for me as a buisness laptop and has all of the comm ports, printer port and USB connections for older equipment that I have.
Excerpt: I purchased this laptop for light use when away from home, and courtesy of Katrina, soon needed it as my full time total use computer. Despite the fact it didn't have some features that I would have demanded in a desktop I was purchasing for the same level of use, its stood up to the demands. My single complaint is that the battery life is beyond short, its nearly useless and has been since the computer was new.
Excerpt: In Cotober of 2008, I purchased my current computer, a used Compaq N610, from a wonderful site for used laptops. It came within the week, and was in great condition. I'm not entirely sure how old it is, but it is a bit bulky for a laptop. It runs very well, and it cost me three hunder dollars for shipping, software, and a CD burner. It's battery life is less than two hours, so it's not incredibly portable, but it is very handy when it doesn't have to be moved.
Excerpt: Solid little laptop. Portable, fast, durable. RELIABLE!!!! I have had three evo's and all were fantastic!! Business series laptop, easily upgraded, feels solid and sturdy, not flimsy. Several configurations available. Even the the newest computer user wil find this unit easy to use and upgrade.
Summary: I bought this computer for my girlfriend thinking that I got a deal. She only used it once when she first got it. Four months later, the computer could not be turned on. I took the laptop to various computer "experts" and they could not figure out why the computer could not be turned on.I NEVER BUY A REFURBISHED ANYTHING ELECTRONIC!!!!!!
Summary: I was slow to install antivirus, and I had to remove a bug off it in the first week(shame on me). The pc has been great. Didn't realize it didn't come with a wireless card(not all that savvi sometimes)
Summary: I bought this computer for my Junior High daughter, figuring she will be able to use it throughout High School. My wish list for this computer would include built-in wireless (cost me another $35), a mouse, and some additional software, but these were easy enough to get and install. Quick and easy setup - I was surfing within a half hour after opening the box.
Summary: I only say that i would not recommend this one to anyone because i cannot get on the internet with it, and i was told that it does not have the card to make it wireless,even though it was suppose to. so i am contacting overstock to see how i should ship this product back to them, or to get help with this item.
Summary: This item was ordered for my daughter as her first laptop. For a young persons first laptop it was a great value.... As soon as she outgrows this unit I will be purchasing a new laptop from OverStock.
