It's cheap and matches the specs of the computer that recently died on mom. I had to replace the HDD with the one on the dead system, and I bumped the RAM up to 6 GB with the old system. It's running great, the only complaint I have is the fan noise, but being a smaller system, that's a granted. Otherwise when I opened it up, it was extremely clean on the inside, and a very good bargain for it's capabilities, despite the diminutive size of the HDD.
My wife needed a replacement laptop that came with a large hard drive (500 GB+) for storing family pictures and videos. Given that I had not purchased her a computer in over 5 years, we immediately noticed how much faster this E6430S was compared to her outdated one. This was the second refurbished computer we had purchased from Joy Systems on Overstock, and just like the first one, this one left us with no complaints. There were no visible scratches or marks, and the computer started right up with no issues. The included instructions were helpful! It has everything my wife needs, and we couldn't be happier. For everyday use, I couldn't imagine why anyone would purchase new when Joy Systems' refurbished computers perform similarly at a much more affordable price. Of note, the battery did in fact hold and sustain a charge. Once again, we are very pleased with our purchase, and we wouldn't hesitate to purchase another computer from Joy Systems in the future. Doubly happy customers!
