I use the laptop as a backup for my tower and this one serves that purpose fine.. I just am having a time getting use to windows 7 after years of being comfortable with XP. This is quite different for sure but after a bit more time am sure it will be fine. As for the computer over all without the different operating system I like it . I feel like I should have waited to get better price but was in a crunch position and had to get this done fast.
I had this item shipped to my parents' in Iowa so I would be able to do some work (my previous laptop had stopped working). This item arrived with a defective fan. The computer would shut down after being on about 15 minutes. I requested a replacement item sent to my home address in Florida. Overstock obviously ignored the comments on my return request, because they sent the item to the wrong address. When I requested that Overstock provide me with a new label so my parents could ship the item to me, they refused. The agent I spoke with said they "might" reimburse me if I went ahead and paid for the shipping. Strangely, they are happy to pay for my parents to return the item to them, which is what we will be doing. I plan on looking for a refurbished laptop elsewhere.
