Best Laptop Ever

 

I bought this refurbished for a great price, it came to me new, got lucky I guess. The thing is a champion. The thing is powerful and can run anything on the web without stutters. Came with win7 support. You can hear the fan go up and down in speeds...

- It's the most powerful laptop you can buy, for anywhere near the price - Never failed on me - Stylish

- generates some heat

Decent

 

Bought this for a Customer in need of a Computer. It arrived with a lot of scratches on the cover, and the battery,charger was free floating in the box. With the chance of it damaging the battery or charger due to shipment. Box arrived punctured and...

Good laptop for the price.

Arrived Scratched on surface

Hard Drive failed

 

Bought this for my wife and to use on trips. I already have built many computers and have 3 desktops I built in use currently but we both like this laptop. It may not be for games or video editing but for everyday use its just fine. "Very pretty" the...

Great little laptop with the power and speed I expected. Fantastic price and the system came as if it was new. I only deducted one point for the hard drive failing as it is to be expected at some point. That's the main reason for doing backups.

As others have said the mouse pad is without a doubt something that takes a lot of getting used to. I bought a wireless mouse to get around it. The hardrive gave an error message about a month ago and now has died. I will replace it with a 7200 RPM...

Awesome

 

Gigabit ethernet is made possible by an Atheros AR8151 chip. Product literature highlights the chip's ultra-low power requirement which seems appropriate for a mobile application. Hard drive is a Toshiba HDD2J53 (MK5059GSXP) which is a two platter,...

Awesome machine. I needed a second laptop like I need a hole in my head, but these were practically being given away. Solid, well-rounded performance. Refurbished model was received in immaculate condition, no flaws of any kind. RAM is a single 4gb...

How the poor excuse for a touchpad escaped quality control/testing in its shipped configuration I will never know. Did they use the laptop before declaring it okay to manufacture? I don't see how they could; the um-teen pre-configured "gestures" are...

AAAAARRRRGGGGGHHHHH!

 

Haven't received the repaired product, but via tracking I noticied they mailed it back to me two days after they received it. One spark of hope is that when I bought mine there were no comments on this page re: the product (pretty risky), and now there...

When I first received it I thought for the price it was an awesome laptop. They were prompt on the response and paid shipping to and fro

I noticed that the system didn't recognize any cd I attempted to read! Had to send it in for repairs

Wow.

 

I purchased this to use Ableton live with a MIDI controller as my 5 yr old VAIO wasn't cutting it. I could not believe the cost vs performance. I am absolutely amazed with the deal on this laptop. If you compare the specs to other laptops you would be...

Performance for the Money, can't tell its a refurb!

Screen, Some Bloatware. Only available in red.

Absolutely no regtrets.

 

I realize refurbished may be a gamble for some but for me it has always paid off. Thank you Newegg!

Great value for the money. Refurbished but laptop arrived in pristine condition. Laptop feels very snappy.

None so far. Laptop works as expected.

I'm impressed!

 

I originally bought this with the intention of putting a 7,200 rpm or solid state hard drive in it to speed things up, I wanted a gaming laptop. I was EXTREMELY impressed when I installed my games and they worked just fine with the 5,400rpm drive. No...

Very fast, handles the games I wanted to play very well, no complaints. Runs World of Warcraft, Star Wars: Old Republic, Fable 3, League of Legends, and many older games VERY well! I haven't tried any other games on it yet, but I run most at max...

I got mine Refurbished, and the F1-12 keys were setup so you had to hold function to use them, but the shortcuts were active at all times. It took about 30 seconds of navigating through the Bios to change this to how i prefer, so when i want the...
