Pros: I haven't had any problems with the laptop itself, and it's quite speedy for the price.
Cons: The power supply was crapping out the very first time I plugged it in, and died about a month later. I'm not really sure if that would have been covered by Joy Systems' warranty so I just went ahead and bought a new one (which works fine).
Summary: This setup is great for me it is the mobile version of my desktop fast and quiet (after the Windows upgrade). Although it comes with Windows 7 Pro, once you activate Windows, you can upgrade to Windows 10 Pro for free via Microsoft's website.
Pros: i5 Processor
Cons: This was a sealed refurbished laptop but it was delivered with a faulty battery. May not be the same for you.
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: Other than the above, it works very well for the price (~$300) and I would give it 4.5/5 if I could as the only major issue is the annoying texturing.
Pros: Very solid, fast laptop that runs beautifully and does all of my mobile work and minor gaming that I want it to for the relatively cheap price.
Cons: Its keyboard and trackpad textures are very grainy and give it a weird feel. Due to the design of the laptop, you will also sometimes tap the trackpad ,thus moving your cursor location, while in the middle of typing.
Summary: I am very happy with my purchase. It is exactly what they said it would be. However, some of the original HP features are no longer functioning (finger print recognition for one), and when I tried to restore the drivers and software from HP, I was unsuccessful, and I did not find them very helpful.
Pros: Item shipped on time and in surprisingly good condition. There are barely any dents or scratches and the keyboard/mouse pad are covered in a plastic material to look like new. All the specs are the same as listed except it came with a 300gb hard drive instead of 250gb.
Cons: not sure if it is the same model as listed because it does not have an hdmi port
