May not be worth the money

 

I don't think they are at all refurbished, it appears the OS is upgraded to Windows 7 and that's about all.

1. Order process was fast. Arrived within two days ; 2. Customer service was fast and apologetic about the problems has return label ready immediately on line. Got replacement within a week of sending the non-working one back

Good Value for an experienced user.

 

It didn't work right out of the box. The plug on the hard drive was in a bind. After re-routing the cable and plug, it came on and worked fine. The keyboard had a hole in the top of it that does not affect the operation. There were no warranty papers...
