Summary: My parents bought this for my for my first year of college. We got a refurbished version because it was cheaper and it was on sale for $450.00. I've experienced 0 problems within the last two years and everything runs smooth.
Summary: I bought this laptop early 2011, it had almost 10 month warranty ,it was very very good till I had the warranty! but exactly 2 months after warranty expired the problem started. I wasted 850$ on this laptop.
Summary: I bought this laptop almost two years ago... It was on a great deal.. It is not a bad laptop for the price. Speed is nice. Its lightweight.. easy to carry... does what a normal laptop is supposed to do.. Two things i hate about this laptop are: Screen... you can't see anything on it in day light..
