Summary: I am a traveling i.t. technician. I purchased this to use on the road since it is built tough, boots up quickly, as good enough for basic work. Today I had to send photos of equipment. I left my special sony camera usb cable at home because I wanted to lighten the load of gear I have to lug around.
Pros: Boots up fast. Good wifi, ethernet and modem. Sturdy build for the road. Good sound. Sturdy lid latch.
Summary: I was so excited to read of this deal- that the previous HP I Had was the standard I was hoping for with this one- Sadly, this is an office edition so loads chunkier and heftier than my pervious HP- screen pixels not as pretty as the other HP, either- seems the blacks were blacker- I dont know...
Pros: THe cost was about what you would pay for a clunky machine- The DOCKING port was a nice addition, as is the SSD and loaded Windows OS.
Cons: Heavy- I did not read the actual weight but it is substantial for a laptop- The DVD reader hardware made noticeable noise when running. Otherwise, since there are no return policy on these items, I have it for use at the camp- it will play DVDs and occasionally connect to our sporadic internet.
Pros: Nice laptop, in decent condition. No major signs of wear & tear except the battery was totally dead.
Cons: Battery was dead & would not recharge at all. One would think that if a laptop is called refurbished, that at least the battery would have been checked. Apparently not. I called Newegg customer service & was told that they would credit me for a replacement battery price of up to $25. I sent the o...
Summary: The computer works great. Took out of the box and it meets expectations. But the charger cord was garbage. Had to go buy a new cord. Just make sure accessorites work before grabbing one out of the bin of chargers.
Summary: I gave this rating because the laptop did not meet my expectations. I understand that it was a refurbished product but did not expect to receive a dented laptop that looks to be very used. I would not recommend this to anyone.
