Alright....I've had this laptop for almost 4 months and can't really give it more than 3 stars. Pros: -Price was good for the speed / general specs. -Size is great, small and portable. -Came with Windows 7 -Battery still has good performance - can use it during my ~4 hour class without plugging in (with appropriate power saving settings) -So far, no issues with actual performance -Runs fairly quiet. Cons: 1) Refurb job is a JOKE. By far my biggest ding. -Doesn't just start up in Windows, you must select Windows every time the computer restarts. -None of the proper drivers are installed. For example, the fingerprint scanner doesn't function, nor did it come with the proper software to activate. I tried to find the settings for the touchpad, and again the proper software/settings are nowhere to be found. This is certainly NOT "like new" or "almost new" condition. For that to qualify, I expect the machine to function flawlessly out of the box. 2) Touchpad is ultra sensitive at the wrong times. It is constantly registering a 'tap' while typing, which leads to you typing and inserting text into previous sentences, etc. 3) Ports - only comes with 2 USB (stacked), and a variety of outdated ports that will never be used 4) Display is, again, fine.. Nothing fancy Just a few comments about appearance -This laptop is old. Certainly not a sexy device, but still a workhorse. -The keyboard has labels stuck to the keys. Most adhere well, but a few have corners poking up. Just a distraction. -The keyboard does show signs of wear. A few keys need to be pressed extra hard to work, etc -Condition is OK, but a few nicks/scratches present, but as you would expect. -I have not had any issues with overheating or the fan running too much. Would I repurchase? Tough call. Jury is still out. Ultimately it serves my needs, so...maybe? I'm not doing back-flips over the purchase, but it certainly does the job.

Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, because this laptop is a good deal and is very fast, but the specs list it as having dual video cards NVIDIA / Intel 3000, which should support 3 or 4 monitors. Since we use docking stations with (2) external monitors, we like the capability of using the laptop screen as a 3rd monitor. The (4) units I purchased all had came with Intel video only. Also, the definition of a refurbished item (to me) is that it was purchased new, had a defect, sent back to the manufacturer (or their proxy), repaired, then sold as a refurb. These units were built in 2011 and are obviously end-of-lease units, with scratches, wear and tear, etc. - The units I bought had Windows 7 Pro 64 SP1 re-installed with new Product Keys and I had to download 228 updates, while setting it up. It comes with 2x2GB DDR3 1333 and I recommend bumping it up 2x4GB DDR3 1333. The Samsung 128GB SSD is the standard 2.5", not a mSATA, thank God, and is upgradeable. The unit is light and as I mentioned very fast. I would buy again at this price.

Order arrived quickly and in perfect condition. The tablet works very well for everything I have tried to do with it, connecting seamlessly with my home network and with open networks around town easily. Added 32 gb card so there is plenty of storage for what I need to do.

I bought this as a gift for my daughter, and she absolutely loves it. There's no way anyone would know it's refurbished. It looks and works great. She told me she likes having the options of getting a SIM card through her provider, connecting it with wifi or connecting with her personal hotspot. I definitely would recommend purchasing this product.

We've had mixed results from refurb'ed computers, but this one has been working perfectly for the few months we've been using it on a daily basis. I rated it 4 stars because that is as high as ratings need to go.

The computer was really good. I got a great price and the phone help was great. I had to learn Windows 7 but that was OK. I spoke to 4 or 5 service reps and the service was excellent. I am happy with the experience and would recommend your site to a friend.

Ordered this last minute for husband's Christmas gift. Came in just a few days. Great price as well. I shopped many other stores on the internet and this was the best deal. He (we) use it daily. No complaints at all and would definitely recommend this Samsung product over our HP tablet.

Easy setup, works perfectly, and got a great price. I did have to buy an updated graphics card and Office suite, now it's up to the minute. Easy to add 4 more GB RAM.

We use these touchscreens in our warehouse to control machines and shipping processes. Very nice units! touchscreens are accurate. With some work, Win 8.1 is usable. They're pretty quick for what they are, but I usually upgrade the HDD to a SSD to get the most out of them. A very good machine with a bright display.

Ordered 4, one failed within 30 days. Overstock customer support & getting a replacement was excellent! Drives are small by today standards, but for a workstation or home Internet user, it'll suffice - you can always upgrade. 4 GIG of RAM is plenty; I like the "clean" install of Win7, no junk or trial software. The only thing I'd like to see different is Win 7 64 instead of 32 so you can see all 4 GIG of RAM, and its a little more secure. Optical mouse & keyboard are pretty good as well. 8 USB ports a plus. These units are professionally refurbished grade A, and are clean as new. There may be a minor scratch or two, but small and colored in so you wont notice. All-in-all I recommend them. Id like to give them a good+, cant go excellent because one failed, but it happens, and like I said, replacement was hassle free & quick.

Purchased 4 of these for a small office. Needed to upgrade from Windows XP but was reluctant to go to Win 8. Found these with Win 7 Professional. No other software on machine, but most of our software needs are through outside vendors or via internet. For us, just needed to add Office and we were good to go. Clean towers with new keyboards and mice. Only had for four weeks but extremely happy with purchase.

I love it and I can already tell its gonna be my go to work station everywhere i travel. The only reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 is because the battery has a defect where it won't charge beyond a certain point. This is a known defect by hp and I'm still trying to figure out if they would even give me a new battery. Otherwise I have to buy a brand new battery for it so it can be used without having to plug it in at all times. Battery life in general is short with the amount of power this laptop needs to function.

Any computer that goes through this process must be identified as refurbished or reconditioned.
