I bought this laptop to use during my deployment and had it all shipped to me for $270. It's been awesome for the price I don't even miss the money. My refurb does show wear, the keyboard is worn, and the case looks like it may have saved someones life...

Buy from some whom tests the product before they ship it out to a customer.

NO Pro's about buying from NEW EGG, they shiped my order to an outside refurbisher. Paid extra for fast shipping, this was a total waste of money. They shipped it regular ground

Computer booted up once correctly, then started shutting off on it's own. After sitting for 8 hrs with the screen message "fixing windows automatically" the computer would not run at all

Big Mistake


Buy somewhere else and forget trying to get a good deal.

None that I can find buying this computer

Stopped working after first try. Shut off automatically and would not reboot. Windows stopped operating correctly and could not correct itself as the computer tried

HP 8440p (SJ747UP#ABA)


I sent the computer back in hope of getting a replacement. I suppose that the item billed out of stock during the shipping process and I was given a refund instead. I can't really fault newegg for this, but I wanted the computer, and there aren't...

Apparently a functional, quality refurb, with one exception detailed below

Battery was dead on arrival. Wouldn't hold a charge or be charged. I'm not exactly sure how such a simple error gets overlooked and it makes me suspicious of the refurbisher

Dont buy this product


Don't buy these refurbished ones......

Laptop still works 2 months after purchase

This refurbished piece is just garbage. Not only does the laptop has dinks and dirt to start with, the battery stopped charging within 1 month after we received it. It has been used very lightly during this month though. The screen flickers when...

Great budget desktop replacement


Overall I am very satisfied with my purchase, I bought this as a desktop replacement for my father since it allows him to move it freely without having to deal with cables (since everything is wireless or just integrated), also with a laptop you get a...

Came looking brand new, no dings or scratches and battery works well, a very good quality refurb. Plenty of perks for the 'business' user; docking support, modem hookup, smart card, etc. Even comes with the 'IBM touchstick' with extra mouse buttons in...

Out of the box they partition the hard drive into a C drive with 60gb and the rest was not partitioned out, easy enough to allocate yourself with disk management. Somewhat heavy but as to be expected for what it is, its not an ultrabook. No back-light...

None So far

It's used computer


AST in the 90s was a good name associated with quality computers. This company is a fraud. They may named themselves this way to capitalize on the legacy of AST. The company tries to associate themselves with big name Microsoft and they misuse...

The computer works

It's used computer, not refurbished. Mine came with a bad battery. The "refurbisher" is AST. AST wants to ship me another used battery to replace this bad one. But they only guarantee that the used battery to last 30 minutes instead of fully...

DOA Battery


Good Shape. No dents, scratches. Good price

Battery will not take any charge. NewEgg said to contact refurb vendor to see if they would replace it or to RMA the whole laptop
