WarrantyBeyond any applicable Newegg return policy, this item is warranted independently by the product's Manufacturer or a Third party. Below is a summary provided for convenience only and may not be accurate or current.
Read full details.
Pros: Comes with the i-5 CPU 3rd general that is fairly responsive with ample hard drive space, and actually came with windows 7 and NOT windows 8. Not overly bloated with "buy me" software. Screen is clear and crisp. An engineering pat on the back for making access to the hard drive, wife card, and memory is well done. Remove one screw and slide toward from.
Cons: First, the slick glassy case is a finger print magnet deluxe but is tolerable.
The Ralink wireless is JUNK. Just no other way to say it. The half mini wifi card has poor range, barely connecting at the back of our 1100 square foot house, and NO it's not my router. I have the best, an Asus RT-N66U router. The main wifi objection deals with the fact that it only operates in the 2.4 G band. Extremely limited sub-par wireless half height cards that are compatible. I did managed to get an Intel Centrino-N 6230 to work, however the F12 wifi on / off switch does not function therefore you have to turn it off via Intels ProSet Wireless Management Software.
Next, is the keyboard. It is roomy and easy to type on, however the plastic inlay that divides the keys has a consistent tenancy to make a slight clicking or soft popping sound while typing.
Memory is at 6G and manufacture mis-matched. Additonally, the CL is at 11 (latency) is a little slow. With a power CPU like the intel i-5, I believe paring this with a better quality matched memory would have been a nice option.
Lastly, the CD drive is most flimsy when extended open and while closed, the drive tray fits loosely and makes one feel as if something might be coming off the computer when casually touching the computer on the right side bottom.
Other Thoughts: As I sit here and ponder this Laptop, I will say that it is a basic useful laptop with above average starting CPU power. A little quality management, this would be a great general purpose work horse laptop. Nevertheless, It does its job and is functional.
