1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy this machine!

Pros: The machine plugged in and turned on. That's it.

Cons: Upon turning on for the FIRST time, Windows 7 became immediately stuck in the dreaded 'startup loop' and would not install itself. Computer is a paperweight. Returning it after having it for ONE DAY for a refund... avoid this machine. Also not at all happy with the NewEgg customer service as they will not refund me or replace the machine until they receive it as a return, which delays me unacceptably. Not at all happy.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very lightweight and nice. Price is awesome.

Cons: The memory is too low to run Windows 7 effectively in the longterm. I suggest you update memory to 8GB

Other Thoughts: For the price it is good if you are looking to just browse the internet and use it lightly. But for gaming and videos you best do a memory upgrade.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent for basic laptop

Pros: Has everything you need to get started with. Allows internet access, has some nice features that come along with it, battery life is decent, and the web cam works nicely. Bought this as a Christmas gift when the price was around $299 and so far so good.

Cons: I understand that this is a recertified device, but the drivers for the wireless, video graphics, and card reader were never preinstalled for this device and that is a bit unexcusable, hence why it lost an egg in my review. Wasn't too big of a deal considering that I knew where to locate the drivers on the web to have them installed, but for a user who is not quite familiar with that, could cause some issues. This is also a small pet peeve of mine, but anyone who went through the Windows Vista nightmare of only having 2GBs of memory preinstalled, you would think these manufacturers would know better and put more memory in them before shipping them out. Regardless, save yourself the trouble and buy at least 3 or 4GBs..... you'll see what a difference it makes.

Other Thoughts: Overall the computer works pretty good, which is why it got 4 eggs. The processor is a little weak so load times may take a little longer to load up, but after it is up and running it processes pretty smoothly and overall a good starter laptop for someone who just needs it for internet, email, and video chatting with Skype.
