  • Summary: Laptop arrived with a loose space bar and the internal speaker did not work After much time installing updates and looking for updated drivers I still could not get the speaker to work even though the earphone jack was working. It is a powerful PC but realize it is "off lease" hardware that is most likely 2-3 years old. I don't think the battery is new either since it has a short life on battery.

  • Summary: I got this laptop for the processor and to be able to expand the memory. It came with a 32 bit system and not the 64 bit advertised. I call tech and they gave me a link for a 64 bit upgrade. Ever-things fine right, WRONG. The system they gave my was a bare bones system, no drivers at all. I couldn't even get to the internet. Call tech back they gave me another link to get the driver for the internet.

  • Summary: I ordered 3 of these laptops and right out of the box 1 had to be returned for a faulty keyboard & mouse buttons. The other 2 were fine, as far as the hardware goes. I ordered these based on the hardware and purchased the extended warranty to cover any issues as these are "re-furbished" units. I guess Walmart has a different definition of "re-furbished" than others.
