Defective Product

 

Returning for replacement, if everything works out well and i can get a replacement/repair done fast i would gladly raise the rating as i guess it was just an oversight in the "refurbishment process." Edit: returned item with no hassle, arrived...

I knew with C grade that the product may have a few dings / scratches but was told it was supposed to work. Product arrived in better aesthetic condition than i expected! But a row of alpha keys didnt work.

Row of alpha keys doesnt work, cannot type on it! I needed this laptop for a class this week and another one starting next week. Unfortunately i may have to buy a different product if i cant get my repair done in time.
