Summary: acceptable performance.low ram,need to upgrade to at least 6g.when opened immediately ran antivirus.plagued with viruses and somehow becomes dangerously fragmented every couple hours,seemingly for no reason.after the advanced system care and instal of ubuntu i think it will perform better.
Summary: The vendor uses FedEx and signature is required so have it delivered to a staffed location or it will cost you a few days on the delivery. I have it dual booted between the installed Win 7 Home 64 and Linux Mint and it's quicker and more responsive (especially the touch pad) with the Linux.
Pros: Notebook was in very good shape for a used item with only a few cosmetic blemishes. It arrived quickly and for the most part, everything worked out of the box. The battery seems close to full strength and no problems with the charger. It will work well for any light, on-the-go computing needs.
Cons: It was advertised as coming with a i5 m560 and came with the standard m520 but all I've lost is a little top end turbo speed. It did come with the optional point stick in the keypad but it doesn't work. Not really a problem and it wasn't an advertised feature but it is slightly irritating.
Cons: Am I missing the battery, or does this unit not come with a battery? On the item description there isn't a battery listed, but neither is the keyboard... I got the keyboard, it is an intrugal part of the laptop, as is the battery in my opinion... On the specifications it says AC adapter included....
Summary: Great machine, great Shell shocker price. I wish they stated WHO refurbished the machine so I know whether to trust it or buy a new Win7 license and start over. Buzz-killer.
Pros: Nice machine (read the specs). Works great. Typed in the refurb win7 key on bottom (not the original tag that was there too) and it worked fine.
Cons: Lousy packaging. Laptop & PS rattling around in box is uncool. After what looked like a virgin Win7 install there is an admin user VTESTER with no password that I did not add. Now I'm concerned about refurbisher virus or rootkit. I'm spending a lot of time scanning with various products.
Summary: Laptop came on time in excellent condition. I believe the actual condition was rated "Very Good" I'm not sure of the difference between that and "Excellent." There can't be much of a difference. It came with the I5 processor and the 8gb or ram. The Hard drive was actually larger than listed.
Summary: I've had good luck in the past with refurbish hardware, just not this time. If I didn't have an extra Window 7 key this would be on its way back. If you don't have one laying around I would suggest you not order this laptop.
Pros: The laptop looks goods without heavy wear signs.
Cons: The laptop came in box with it rattling around with a loose power supply. When I booted it up it asks for the Microsoft Windows Key. The one on the laptop sticker did not work. So now what? The laptop operating system came installed but with no drivers except for the network drivers. The screws i...
