works for what i need

N/A, Newegg
16 January 2014
  • Summary: I only bought it because I'm an engineering major at USF and needed a pc laptop for my c++ programming class. I have a MacBook and could've used xcode, but since the professor uses windows it's better that I just work with VisualStudio (which is free for Students at dreamspark) or dev c++, to code and compile straight into windows to minimize any issues (which in theory shouldn't really be issues) coding simple c++ scripts in mac without testing files/compiling in...
  • Pros: it works and it's cheaper than a new laptop.. I would have given 4 stars if not for the adware.
  • Cons: ADWARE!!!! So much adware. Everytime I clicked anything I would just get popups. Even popups that hijack the title of the site you're on, in an attempt to fool you into thinking it's actually a part of the site even when you KNOW it's not because the site does not use pop-up ads. Ridiculous. This had to be installed by the refurbisher, with or without the company heads having knowledge of it I do not know.. Batter drains FAST. From 100% to 98% in just a minute or two....

  • Pros: Windows 7, dual core, 2gb ram. I jut wanted this laptop to get online, take with me on the road to troubleshoot other people's network problems, and just basic uses.
  • Cons: The battery doesn't work. Time to see how good their Customer Service is.

Not as mobile as it should be but kids play laptop...

  • Summary: Good cheap laptop but terrible battery life and constant noise from the cooling fan. Windows XP is going out of support so do not think you will get help from Windows tech support for driver problems or bugs afterward.

  • Summary: I have a refurb and the screen went out so I have to hook it up to my old monitor but for the deal it's still pretty damn good. I'm going to just hand this one down to my daughter though and get myself a better one.

Good laptop - for the price!

  • Summary: While not a state-of-the-art computer by today's standards, this laptop has a lot of bells and whistles for the price. It is considerably slower than the other laptops in my home, but as I only use it mainly for e-mail and web browsing, speed is not a huge issue for me.

  • Summary: Computer works well. Pretty fast for a refurbished unit. Only problems, was supposed to come with Windows 7 and came with Windows 98. Not a huge deal, but not what I thought I purchased. Also, took a long time from ordering to shipping.

nc6400 refurbished

Overstock
7 March 2010
  • Summary: There are many positives about this laptop, but a few very annoying problems. Let me concentrate on the latter. I'm new to Hewlett Packard so some of these issues may have fixes. First, the battery life of this refurbished nc6400 is only about twenty minutes. That is unacceptable yet it is not covered by the expensive warranty I purchased and is the reason I'm returning it.

A few niggling let-downs

Mr. Lee David Newsum, Amazon
6 May 2012
  • Summary: Arrived late - not surprising, given the season, but it IS the only item that has ever done so. The keyboard layout is... different - leading me to think the laptop came from an overseas business-environment. I've had to reinstall the OS several times, as there seems to be some sort of 'not-entirely-comptible' issue between the processor and hard drive (I kept getting a sound very reminiscent of Windy Miller's windmill from the drive - particularly when 'waking'(?
