TOSHIBA Z50-A1503

 

I'd like to try and quickly troubleshoot with someone from NewEgg before returning it...tried to start an RMA, and the website is down. Tried to chat a representative via the 24hr chat, and it didn't work. Sigh!

I didn't pay for overnight shipping, but received the refurbished laptop the next day. I was ecstatic! Beautiful laptop

It worked for an hour last night. This morning, it was fully charged, but would't turn on
