Solid Refurb

 

The way to right-click with the mousepad is to hold the mouspad down for 2-3 seconds and release. That will bring up your right-click options. -Overall, this was chosen for the amount of power and upgradability you get for $500. Despite being a refurb,...

Laptop came and was very clean, no blemishes or scratches ; Nice multitasking, able to bring up and run multiple programs without fuss ; surprisingly quick bootup and program starts. Bootup takes about 20s ; Aluminum body feels high quality ; Speakers...

Windows 8 is certainly something to get used to. Make sure ALL of your windows 8 updates are done BEFORE you upgrade to 8.1, otherwise the upgrade will not work ; Touchscreen driver goes bye bye after waking up from sleep. I have not found a solution...

TRASH!!!!

 

I had to give it one star to post, but it has to be zero because the computer is a useless paperweight...

N/A

Computer turned on initally out of the box, when I came home from work the next day, it was off and would not turn on. Not sure if it is the battery or the power connector, but relying on NewEgg for support is pointless, as once your card goes thru...

Sweet!!

 

Pulled the 1TB hard drive out and put in a 240SSD in to improve battery and performance. I would strongly reccomend it.

Beautiful laptop, Touchscreen, light, Windows 8 has the ability to mount .iso images so no need for an optical drive any longer, USB 3.0 is slick, HDMI, super simple set up, Beats Audio sounds better once you update the drivers, SD Card reader, HD and...

Needing to apply plenty of updates which is annoying but that comes with compatibility of software and of course adding security or increasing performance

Just an addition

 

I have already reviewed this laptop once when I initially received it. I just waned to add a few things that I have learned about this laptop since then ; About a week ago I fell asleep in my bunk bed while watching youtube videos on this laptop. I...

Again this is an updated review to look at my previous review for more details ; I hate that the track pad does not have dedicated left and right buttons. When I try to click it moves the mouse because the button is the track pad! many companies are...

Nice Machine -

 

Windows 8 is a bit of a bear to learn but once you know what the down arrow is for on the start screen, things become easier. Shutting down some program is a bit of a mystery. The game offer is a joke, none are available at this time to download. Huh?

Nice features, good power, good capacity, easy to use

Sound is not as advertised, very standard for a laptop

Did not work on delivery!

 

Don't know, it never started

This unit never even started up. I am wondering if it had any quality control at all before it left the factory. It cost me time and money. I will not be buying any refurbished equipment from Newegg again. I had to send it back to HP and am currently...

Refurbished ?

 

Fan are probably loud because they something isnt stable. Will probably change the heat paste to see if it helps. Even though the APU grows in heat when plugged (from 30°C to something like 45-55°C), the laptop stays cool. I havent lunched Prime95 yet...

Georgous sound. There is 4 speakers (two of them are hidden under the laptop) and only one subwoofer, not 2. However, the sound is very clear even when pushed at max. Touchscreen makes windows 8 more enjoyable and works really fine. aluminum finish is...

when plugged, the turbo engage for almost any task and it makes the APU heat up to 43°C for normal use like browsing and 55°C in more heavy tasks. It would be better if the turbo would only engage when using heavier application than Chrome or windows...

wasn't sure at first

 

I like that it runs quick and all that ram really does wonders

windows 8. but from what I've heard it takes some getting used to

Consumer review by:

Good

 

For a refurbished item, it worked well and hasn't crashed on me yet. The speakers aren't as loud or clear as I thought being powered by beats audio. I never got the battlefield 4 game.

Quick touchscreen ; Graphics card(D3 and LoL playable) ; Quad-Core ; Backlit Keyboard ; Great purchase for cost

Not the best wireless card. I have to be a lot closer to my router then where I was with my macbook air ; Fan is always loud
