I wanted a laptop with a built-in CD/DVD drive and this was one of Lenovo's last models to include this feature. Initially I was put off that it wasn't a factory refurb, but from a company in New Jersey called Joy Systems, although my concerns were unnecessary. The laptop specs actually exceeded the listed specs, 1600x900 video, 16 GB ram, USB 3, etc. I did my homework and knew some of this ahead of time. The screen is flawless and battery life around 4 hours. YMMV. My only quibble is that instead of replacing worn parts (keyboard, track pad, palm rests) Joy Systems instead covered them with black, tactile contact paper. Initially I knew the keyboard was different (maybe a Chinese aftermarket part?), but it took a week to notice the stickers. The covering on the right palm rest didn't fit right and I called them for a replacement. When I peeled off the original...the plastic underneath looked brand new! I suspect the laptop shows wear somewhere, but am still highly pleased with my purchase.
I couldn't wait to get my new mac. I love that it has 500 gb of space. I purchased the overstock membership at the same time and got enough credit back to purchase a bag and an external hardrive. And the mac came with wireless beats by dre earphones. cant beat that deal anywhere!!!
This is a very old computer. It's not that it is bad per se. I had no idea it was so old because it was 4 GB. It doesn't have a HDMI slot which I thought in this day and age was a given. While it is today it wasn't 7-8 years ago. I thought the price was good but not when you take into consideration how old this is. They saw me coming!!
LAPTOP: Love it. Exactly what I wanted, although not as described. The details said Windows 7 Pro. When I got it, it had instructions that the original key was no longer valid and had a new one with Windows 7 Home. Ok, I'll live. But it also sid 6 GB of RAM and actually had 8, so that more than made up for it!! SHIPPING: What a joke! I ordered this 2 weeks before vacations, on a Saturday. Expected delivery was Mon/Tues of following week - about 10 days. Didn't ship for almost a week and then finally arrived the night before vacation, so I was scrambling to get it setup. In the world that Amazon has created, I found this unacceptable. While I don't expect everyone to be Amazon, I do use that as the standard and 12 days to receive a non-customized product just isn't acceptable. Furthermore, I would have paid for faster shipping, but the options only got it here a day earlier and the original (wrong) estimate would have been fine.
