Fast machine for the price. Pity the battery was DOA

Summary: Would be nice if it had a built in microphone, kind of silly to have a built in webcam and no mic
Pros: The machine looked to be brand new. No scratches, no marks just looked new. Has a hi speed disk drive 7200rpm. Dis drive is actually 500 gb not the advertised 3200 gb Installed windows 10 pro on it with no issues after updating the bios and downloading all the win 8.1 drivers. Everything appeared...
Cons: The battery was dead and not recognized. Bought an after market battery and it was recognized but the machine wouldn't charge it. Wiped the machine clean and RMAd it. Waiting for replacement and will update the review then.
Summary: - over all with loading the OS and supplying the required COA - replacing the keyboard, battery, and charger with a quality one - this all said and done, would have doubled our cost of the system and make the 'over the counter' cost not worth the price *** We sent it back the same day, Newegg is...
Pros: system was in great shape, except...(see below)
Cons: - the keyboard was so warn that they had put 'stickers' on the keys and the upper right corner of keyboard did not work at all - the 'after market' batter was not recognized by the system and showed an error code as soon as it was plugged in - the 'after market' adapter worked but was very cheap,...
Summary: Returning. If I wanted a scratch & dent machine I could have just bought one on Fleabay or from Arrow-Direct for half the price. Joy Systems severely disappoints this time around. If you are going to sell something as refurbished, at least refurbish it and grade the outcome.
Pros: Inexpensive Fresh Windows 7 image
Cons: Poorly glued corner where machine was previously cracked Rattles when shaken, near the fan (!) Keyboard caps have stickers on them to presumably replace worn key etching...is it really too expensive to replace the keyboard? Oily/not clean Ding on lid
Summary: For less than the price of a new laptop this is a good deal. The touch pad thing is really annoying, but not the laptops fault. I just cover it with some cardboard so I don't accidentally click things when typing.
Summary: The customer service person I interacted with, "Rose S", said that since working wifi wasn't specified in the listing, NewEgg wouldn't accept a return for wifi not working. I accepted that. But it's regrettable that I had to argue about the hard drive not being the specified size.
Pros: It seemed to be a very nice computer. Everything was clean. It looked almost new. Setup was easy. It started up quickly. The screen was anti-glare. I didn't notice any dead pixels. It was also light and a convenient size.
Cons: I ordered a refurbished laptop with a 320GB hard drive. Unfortunately, the one that arrived had a 250GB hard drive. Also, there was no working wifi. The hard drive was specified in the specifications. The wifi was not. This is something to pay attention to when you make a decision about what to o...
Summary: Looks like new, runs great. After upgrading to Windows 10 using Microsoft's free upgrade, it is like having a brand new laptop. Everything about the product and the ordering process was exactly as advertised.
Summary: The price for this HP Laptop was excellent but it had hard drive problems when it arrived. I was emailed a FedEx shipping label and sent the computer back. Supposedly, they will send me a different computer when they receive the first one back.
