I found this laptop while looking for a replacement for my 5 1/2-year-old HP Pavilion 17". I was looking for a machine with a monitor the same size as my old one and as much HD capacity as possible, so the combination of a 17" screen and 2TB hard drive (which very few laptops have) was pretty much irresistible. The seller shipped the computer very quickly and I received it within 48 hours of placing the order. It was billed as "refurbished", but it looked pretty much brand-new when I got it. It did require Windows updates to bring it up to date, but that posed no great difficulty. It's actually lighter than my old laptop, which is a definite plus when carrying it in a backpack. I also appreciated the USB 3.0 port which enables me to move data back and forth much faster between the computer and my USB 3.0 devices (external HD and flash drive). It's not the absolute newest, all-the-bells-and-whistles laptop, but for moderate use when I can't get to my desktop and need something with more oomph than my tablet (especially when I want to play a proper PC game or run a DVD movie), this does everything asked of it.
Computer came just as described, no variation at all with the specifics of the machine. The picture is almost identical to the machine I received- except for very minor wear and tear for each individual refurbished computer. Obviously each computer will have slight variations. I am very pleased!
This refurbished computer is fast, reliable, and has great memory and disc capacity. The price was about 1/2 of a comparable computer purchased directly from Dell. Thanks Overstock.com!
