Summary: I'm not going to lie, this laptop is durable and will last you through the 4+ years of school. The HP support for the business class laptops is next level. They'll send a technician to your place to fix your laptop for you (if it's under warranty).
Summary: I found a while back that used/refurbished business class laptops have a lot going for them in durability and features at a great price. Add to that many companies now buy laptops for their employees that never make it out of the office docking station.
This is the best value for a used notebook computer that I have ever seen.

Summary: I bought this laptop to to do my CAD work while on the go. I have to say that this machine handles SolidWorks better than my desktop ever did. I find my self using the laptop instead of the desktop. Some key things that should be done to the laptop after you buy it is up grade the RAM.
Summary: I just got this product for a steal at $650 refurbished and I love it. What people need to remember is this is not a laptop, it's a mobile workstation. This is thick and feels very solid. If you want to walk around w/something you're better off w/a tablet in this day and age anyway.
