Excerpt: vista64 was no longer performing and I knew it was time to rebuild or buy new. New was not an option and reinstalling vista was not an option. 7 is already better than the old Vista on this 6-8 year old PC.
Summary: I purchased this refurbished laptop with a little hesitation. There are so many negative reviews posted about other sellers like Walmart that it seemed like a big risk. What I received was a clean, well cared for laptop with one set of scratches near the track pad (looks like dog claw marks). So far everything functions correctly. The harddrive was wiped and Windows was freshly installed.
Excerpt: I bought this product to use with Parallels on my MacBook Pro. Installed Parallels, inserted the disc, and voila! MacBook Pro running a 64 bit version of Windows 7 with no issues, no lag, and install was incredibly simple. I should note that I've made other upgrades to my Mac for this to run as well as it does, but I'm fairly confident that anyone in need of a Windows 7 operating system should have no problems with installation.
Pros: Easy To Install, Easy To Navigate, Fast, Great Value, Powerful
Excerpt: I have used Win7 on various computers for several years now, and have had no problems at all with it. Given that Windows 8.x is pretty universally despised, and Windows 9 isn't out yet, Win7 is currently (as of 9/15/2014) the only reasonable game in town. Get it sooner than later, however, as supplies are likely to be drying up over the next few months.
Excerpt: I use Windows 7 Pro on the desktop at my home/office as a land surveyor. While I haven't used Win 7 for a long time, the OS is very stable as opined by many colleagues. Having finally upgraded from XP, the interface is very sharp and intuitive. Jumping to Windows 8 was a thought, but this was recommended for business. No dislikes at this time, but adapting to the ribbons.
Excerpt: This is the new packaging OEM-version for system builders, there is no crystal case for the DVD. The license key is valid for one computer. If you don't enter the key code during setup you have 30-days to use Win 7. You don't get any phone tech support from MS.
