Summary: Received unit, worked great for 2 mos. After 2 mos screen suddenly came up with a one inch stripe down the middle still used it anyway. 2 mos after that WiFi stopped working tried a reinstall many times to no avail. Wrote Amazon, they wrote back since it was over 90 days it's no longer covered. Now it just sits in the closet and I use a tablet I bought locally. My advice, don't make a major purchase online.
Cons: The first one I got had a smashed corner and it wouldn't lock closed. Not damaged in shipping, it was packed that way. I just got the replacement and the screen is bent and it won't close either. I'm done with this, don't want a replacement this time.
WARNING - Died in less than one year - low usage - POOR SUPPORT

Summary: If you see a reply to this post that states they want to help resolve this issue, don't believe it. I have already tried to contact them multiple times over the last two weeks and they (MetroPC) will not reply.
Cons: Laptop died in less than one year. Early on, battery died and they had to send a replacement. This laptop was only used 1-2 times per month.
Summary: Incorrect item sent.Received8530p .It took 3 days to get it charged after I opened the pkg. after I disconnected it from AC power ittold me it was on low power so I shut it down.Reconnected to AC but it will not come on John Downey
Excerpt: This computer said refurbished but it is clearly well worn. The touchpad area has a gloss from being worn down. There are fade marks where previous stickers were.<br />Disappointed as expected something newer.
Cons: Fade Marks Where Stickers, Keyboard Button Missing, Not Nearly New Condition, Touchpad Is Worn From Use
Summary: Never sent the Disc with the Laptop Once you did send the disk . found out the windows needs to be activated and there is no product key for it.So keeps asking to actvate.does not work unless it is pluged in does not charge battery is junk.NOT worth the money or the timer.I am a truck driver and use a laptop alot and this one is junker then my old wore out one.
