Summary: These are business class computers that has been returned. The components are a lot heavier duty. I leave mine on 24 hours a day, and it keeps on going. It is not a cheap consumer laptop, the fan, the keyboard..everything about it is higher quality. If you want state of the art sound cards, or brand new batteries, don't buy it. If you want something that will hold up until you want something new, this is a great deal.
Summary: Very affordable and works great. Timely delivery. I am very happy because I would have spent at least about 5 times as much in a regular retail store. A fifth of the price for a great product makes me a super-happy customer.
Summary: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64bit OSS Worked just fine. Copied over the existing Vista OS without an issue and is running smoothly. Do not need to slick the drive before installation regardless of what the web says.
Summary: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64bit OSS I could have used xp but I upgraded to W7 on a rebuild. This is an older dual core Pentium machine. I upgraded the video, os and ram. Works like new.
Summary: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64bit OSS I've been an XP user for many years, made a decision to upgrade to Win 7 because I find it's easy to use and great with drives because it installs the devices for you with out the need of looking for drivers. Best investment I've made.
