My first HP, but having bought several refurb'd desktops from Overstock with great success, decided to give this a try. Its primary use is for the managing a website and reunion information, highly portable, adequate screen size (I like huge widescreens, but this works fine), decent performance, great DVD/RW, excellent features. Machine arrived ready to configure, no issues whatsoever, a nice setup. Machine itself arrived in immaculate condition, clean and shiny, no observable usage.
For the money, this has been a great value...
- the Core Duo is a decent chip, older, successful, no noticeable performance issues, fast clock speed.
- 4GB memory never runs out of working space
- 160GB HDD is more than adequate for my use, supports USB external drive(s) (I connect a 1TB samsung and a 2nd DVD/rw)
- USBs are 2.0 but 4 ports is above average, nice to have extras for gadgets or recharging.
- Display is very nice, clear
- lots of "goodies" on the faceplate, such as touch controls for ...
My husband's last laptop is about 7 years old and it gave up the ghost. This one is so fast and he loves it! Case was pretty scratched up but was a lovely blue color. The first one shipped had a damaged pixelation on the screen and was a bigger screen, this one is much smaller on the screen but seems to be working fine with no damage.
This is the third time I bought a factory refurbished computer over the years from Overstock. Each time the price was great, each lasted 3 years - and hey, the technology changes by then so you need a new computer. I have recommended this purchase many times to other people. As people turn to tablets, and I have one of those as well, I still think that many of us still need our laptops or desktops and I will continue buying the factory refurbished from Overstock.
Excellent quality for the price. Still gettig used to my new computer. There is no comparison to my old laptop. This one is larger, lighter and much faster. I am looking forward to learning all that I can about this new purchase. So far, I am very satisfied with this purchase.
The speed and picture clarity is amazing. I am sure that when I get more adept at using this it will give me years of good use. Very pleased with my new ASUS computer.
