I ordered this knowing I wasn't getting anything high end, I just wanted a second laptop to have around for surfing the web and checking email. This is good for that but was not without problems. First, this was originally a VISTA operating system that had WINDOWS 7 installed. There were a few glitches because of that and a few settings had to be changed. I also had to change one BIOS setting to prevent the machine from ever hybernating and/or moving to the secondary battery source (as a busness machine it comes with this option but I only use one battery). Also, the power cord was faulty and I only discovered this when the battery refused to charge, I used the cord from an old HP laptop I has laying around and everything worked fine. So boo for that waste of money. From the same old HP laptop I had laying around I pulled out some RAM and installed it in this one (it comes with 2 gigs but that isn't really enough for WIN 7) so things work pretty well now. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone unless they knew a bit about computers and felt comfortable messing around with it. For me it was a project,I liked the basic form and was ok with cannabalizing my brokend down machines to get this one up to par. It's my daily mess-around laptop now and I won't be installing too much beyond what I need to use google, fb, email, etc.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? just like the photo
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? no
Please tell us about the quality of the product. slightly below average
Delivery was as advertised and good for a no-cost shipment.
Battery seems to run down noticeably faster than for a new PC, but this isn't a new PC, refurbished, and battery life is acceptable.
No manuals were included. It would have been helpful for at least a xeroxed copy of the applicable manual to be packed with the PC.
No loaded software was advertised or provided. The user will want to plan on at least downloading a set of basic free oficeware and virus protection. Bought and downloaded a good virus program and has already saved my PC in just one month.
