Summary: Where to begin, I have never written a review that I can remember-although all experiences with Amazon before this issue were perfect.........(3-5 purchases over 12 mos) . This laptop purchase has been a nightmare!!!!!!!!!! First my budget was under $400-(credit limit) needed 17.3 screen,HDMI output,webcam,decent battery life-Windows 7 only-found what appered to be a great deal on refurbished Toshiba $375 -including shipping. SOLD..........I was excited.
Summary: The computer was bought for my dad. He's not a heavy graphics user and is generally gentle on his machines. About six weeks after purchase, he said that it would not charge. This has happened intermittently and I've found that sometimes taking the battery out, plugging it in, starting it up and then replacing the battery gets it charging. NOT COOL! The 30 day replacement period from Amazon is up, so i'm looking at the manufacturers warranty..
DO NOT BUY FROM DAVE ELECTRONICS---WILL RIP YOU OFF

Summary: ABSOLUTELY, DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BUY ANYTHING AT ALL FROM DAVE ELECTRONICS. I PAID ALMOST $600 FOR A TOSHIBA LAPTOP. IT ARRIVED INSIDE OF AN, OTHERWISE EMPTY, OVER-SIZED SHARP ELECTRONICS BOX THAT WAS LITERALLY BEAT TO RAT SHIT. I WAS NOT ASKED TO SIGN FOR ANYTHING, THE SHIPPER SIMPLY HANDED ME THE PACKAGE. WITHIN 10 DAYS THE KEYBOARD KEYS STARTING LIFTING. I FOLLOWED PROTOCOL TO INITIATE AN EXCHANGE OR RETURN.
