Summary: Unlike a new pc that is full of software that then has to be removed, this had only windows on it. So adding what was needed was simple and painless. The problem is the wrong OS, as it limits the notebook owner to just the installed ram and no 64bit software.
Pros: A 2.26GHz processor is really 2.4GHz and the hard drive is a 160GB instead of 120GB. But, the hard drive was replaced with a solid state drive so that did not matter.
Cons: The largest issue is the installed 32 bit version of Windows 7 Pro instead of the 64bit.
Summary: The machine looked like a great price and product, but I wouldn't have bought it if I'd known it was a 32-bit.
Pros: good price; longer basic warranty (18 months instead of 90 days or 1 year); adequate HDD size for my needs.
Cons: This is advertised as a 64-bit machine, but it's a 32-bit!!! I was looking specifically for a 64-bit Windows 7 machine, found this one at a great price, but it's 32-bit. That is disappointing. I found other W7 32-bit machines for a lower price than this one...
Summary: Newegg was kind enough to issue me a $25 dollar credit to buy a new battery after a lengthy conversation with their "Customer support" I would steer very clear from Newegg's used laptop selection as they are quick to shift the blame to their vendor and not themselves.
Pros: It is in fact a laptop.
Cons: 1. Battery came dead. 2. Laptop came with only 1GB memory instead of 2GB. 3. The copy of Windows 7 was not fully installed. 4. Not really a Con I guess but came with 240GB HHD as opposed to the 160 advertised. 5. Laptop cable is a cheap knockoff and not original.
Cons: I purchased two laptops for my kids. Both laptops will not connect to wireless. They were working fine first couple days. Now both won't connect to any wireless routers. They won't even show any available connections. They work fine with USB wireless plugin and RJ45 (wired).
Summary: I received the laptop in good time however when i opened the box and removed the laptop to check it out I noticed the top was not closed completely. I tried several times to close the top but it would not stay closed. So I returned the laptop for a full refund.
Summary: This was purchased as a Christmas gift for my Grandson. After opening his gift he immediately plugged it in to charge only to find, after waiting patiently, that the battery does not hold a charge and is basically useless.

Summary: The laptop was defective. It freezes and starts and stops on you tube videos; while playing two videos at the same time. The folks at Tampa Laptops were fast to respond to my complaint. The vendor's add said... the laptop was "refurbished".
Summary: Meh. The screen on this is very dark, and visible only if you're directly in front of it. My daughter uses it, but I'd probably go insane if it were mine. It runs fine and functions, and she is content to use it. But if you're buying it for an adult, I'd pass.
