  • Summary: I was very frustrated, and Newegg sent me a UPS prepaid shipping label to send it back. I received another laptop in it's place, and that one was broken, too. I am now, patiently, awaiting my refund. I won't order from Newegg again.

  • Cons: This was the first refurbished laptop I received. It was recommend to me from a tech-savvy friend who ordered the same computer for his daughter, and had no problems with it. I had nothing BUT problems with it. Mostly that windows would shut down at random. At one point, it did it 10 times in 4 m...

  • Summary: Power cord did not work. Tried to contact Joy Systems, the refurbisher I was directed to contact for problems, by phone but no answer. Sent an email but got no response. Waited until the next week, was on hold for over an hour with Joy, then was told I'd be emailed a FedEx label to return the cord.

  • 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.

  • 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.
