Summary: This system was more compact that I had suspected but I view that was desirable for the college student who will be using it. The case is very solid magnesium which is light but strong. The I5 processor is snappy enough for the use it will receive.
Pros: While this was a refurbished unit, it was impossible to tell it from new. The hinge was tight and the case was unblemished. On first boot, windows installed with no drama.
