Its worse than what you pay for.

 

This is not worth to pay for it. I regretted buying this .. But it helps me to finish some work while I don't have any PC that I need to use. If you are not so serious, you can take this. But for daily users, it is annoying.

Cheap ; Color full Dsiplay ; Processor ( Core i3 )

Failure on RAM Upgrade for 64 bit OS ( Sometime Bluescreen after upgrade RAM to 8 GB ) ; Failure on Touch Mouse Pad. Some time you can't press right click ; LAN or Wireless failure after connecting to network for more than 8 hours

Great build quality decent specs for price.

 

Compared to the Compaq CQ series of laptops which fall in a similar price range, I found the quality of this laptop to be much better, feeling rugged and comparable to some higher end machines. Looks durable. The Compaq by comparison felt cheap with...

Great build quality, decent specs for everyday use. Nice screen and keypad

Still to find some

good batter at a good price

 

It is working great. My son loves this old phone and was overjoyed that I could find a replacement battery he could afford

None so far

R430-White

 

I think the Koreans can teach us a little when it comes to throwing in a few unexpected free goodies, this laptop came with all sorts of extras not available in the states.

Bought at Home-Plus in Munsan, South Korea for $800. The 64GB SSD is lightning fast; LED-LCD; White honeycomb finish; No mouse stick in middle of keyboard; Came with 1TB Passport about the size of a wallet; Came with laptop carrying case; came with 4GB...

Not enough USB ports but did come with an 8-Hub USB dongle and cell-phone charger

amazing bang for buck

 

Boot time to desktop out of the box was 1 minute 30 seconds. Replaced the 5400RPM drive with a 60 gig OCZ vertex SSD drive and boot time dropped to 7.5 seconds!!! Machine is insanely responsive with the SSD drive. If you are looking for a killer...

Good price. Performance is what you would expect from a Core 2 duo with a 5400rpm drive. Battery life is also what you would expect from a mid-range laptop. Not a lot of bloatware

none so far. Everything is running smoothly

Good Product

 

Very good package. All the hardware works fine. I found that compared to similar products this laptop is a great bang for the buck. Setup was easy and painless. The 64 bit Windows 7 os is stable and hasn't given an problems. It runs smooth and fast ; I...

The Phoenix Failsafe pop-up is the only issue I had. This product offer should have a removal option if you don't want it. I found that you have to go in and delete the entire Phoenix folder from the Programs Files folder to stop it. I will never think...
