4 out of 5 eggsEdited review

Pros: this is an edited review, not sure why i can't edit my previous review. After an RMA for a doa battery and malfunctioning screen, the RMA process was fast and easy with customer service. The new battery is again DOA and wroking with them again, hopefully it will be a replacement. In spite of this i still feel I'm getting a very nice laptop for $259. Comes with 7zip, open office. This model came with a webcam, my last one didn't. Easy setup. Quad core processor, some gpu action. I play Lord of the Rings Online and it says my computer can run it on High graphics which is nice, but it heats up a lot so I run on Low. It also has only one memory slot, i put a 4gb stick in it, but it seems to have an aditional 2gb memory somewhere maybe built in to the mother board or processor.

Cons: Frustrating that so many of the batteries they send out are doa.

3 out of 5 eggsGood deal but some things are maybe hit and miss

Pros: Decently fast processor; quick and easy setup; nice price; laptop was in generally good shape and appearance. Very fast support, however, and a painless RMA so far (see cons). Overall, I felt this was a good deal for the price I was paying. I also do light gaming and am able to play some of the lower end games I like on it (there is some decent dedicated GPU in this comp besides the processor). I was pleased with the package and still feel it was a good deal, except for the RMA . . . see below

The aluminum casing seems very sturdy compared to the flimsy plastic of my old Toshiba and to some extent the plastic of my wife's Lenovo.

Price--I would never pay 500 for this (as a refurb no less) but I got it at half that, so it's very affordable.

Cons: Battery was pretty much DOA. It claimed to be charged fully to 100% but after disconnecting the powercable, the computer went to sleep within a minute or two due to low battery! Also, I noticed that when the screen was dim a while, when it bumped back up to full brightness, there was a distinct flashing connected with high contrast areas (ie areas where white was against a dark background).

However, after emailing customer support, Richard emailed me back very fast and since there were two issues (he said the screen issue was likely a loose connection or something) they would RMA and send me another. Fedex sent an email and when i took it in, they put a label on it and

Another con is the shipping package. I'm a bit nervous having a laptop on a piece of carboard wrapped in plastic. It obviously worked fine but it seems dangerous to me : )

Last con, no shipping slip or reciept sent with the item. I guess newegg emailed me one but I personally like to see the mailing information attached to packages or at least inside them.

I fully anticipate getting a great laptop, though, once it gets sent to me. I will update accordingly.

Other Thoughts: Mostly pleased with this laptop price and configuration. It's a step or three above my old core 2 duo and is well made and sturdy.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, inexpensive laptop

Pros: Clean and well-built laptop. Very nice scissor keys on the keyboard, touchpad is high quality too. Powerful enough for the vast majority of tasks. I used this model at work for years and it's always been reliable.

Cons: Came with a Hitachi hard drive. Battery was DOA (wouldn't take a charge), but US Micro customer service was great.

Other Thoughts: I emailed US Micro about the DOA battery and they got back to me as soon as customer service hours started again. They sent a new battery right away, and I got it in two business days. I'd have no problem buying another refurb from them.

1 out of 5 eggsOnly 6 Monhs

Pros: This laptop came all setup and worked great.

Cons: After 6 months of use the computer suddenly made a click sound and went black. Stone cold dead.

Other Thoughts: If you want a computer that works great for 6 months and the dire. Then buy this one.

No wonder It only has a 90day warranty..

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice for the money

Pros: W7 Pro. Quad core CPU. 4GB RAM (dual channel!). WD Scorpio Black HD. Gigabit LAN. No crapware!! B/G/N WiFi. Bluetooth. Nice KB. Laptop was refurbed by US Micro, one of the best out there. Nice connectivity; 4 USB, FW, SD reader.

Cons: No webcam. I took a gamble on this b/c some reviewers said theirs came w/a webcam. Mine did not. It does have a nifty popout light that shines on the keyboard where the cam would go. Typical 13x7 resolution, but screen is very bright and clear.

Other Thoughts: My laptop did not come with any Operating System media, but the HD does have a recovery partition and the OS prompts you for which partition to boot to (normal W7 or the recovery part). I haven't tested the battery life yet, but after about an hour plugged in, battery shows 100% charged...a good sign. Came preloaded with Open Office and a CD/DVD burning program, but no other extraneous software. Cosmetically, it's obvious this is a used machine, but there are no cracks in the case or other structural issue. Screen hinges are straight and tight. KB/trackpad were mostly clean. I'd rate it a 8/10 cosmetically. Volume and Browser/Email shortcut buttons are the "soft touch" variety and sit above the KB/below screen. Did not see them at first! I don't care for them but YMMV. I bought this to act as a backup for my main laptop when I am DJing, but this laptop would do very well in any basic productivity/office tasks scenario.

3 out of 5 eggsDOA Battery

Pros: Good Shape. No dents, scratches. Good price

Cons: Battery will not take any charge. NewEgg said to contact refurb vendor to see if they would replace it or to RMA the whole laptop.

4 out of 5 eggsBattery DOA but quick fix

Pros: No bloatware, basic productivity software installed (open), clean and runs very well. Functionality for the price is hard to beat. Has a small pop out light next to webcam that lights up keyboard or any papers laid there. Good for flights.

Cons: Battery was DOA - see other.

Other Thoughts: Battery never charged beyond 4% and instantly tried to power down after unplugging. Richard Herman from support for USmicro responded immediately and shipped a replacement battery that arrived within 2 business days. Great service and why I buy USmicro refurbs over others. Doesn't remedy the initial shipping with a DOA battery but makes me secure in knowing any problems will be fixed, had to dock 1 egg.

4 out of 5 eggsRefurbished: HP EliteBook 8440p 2.4GHz 4GB Memory 250GB HDD 14.0" Notebook Windows 7 Professional 64bit

Pros: Obviously a Refurb and not new, but I expected that. This laptop has nice, solid features, and scored 5.0 on the Performance Index. The processor scored 6.8 and everything else scored 5.9 except the Windows Aero score of 5.0. Nice machine with no scratches, cracks, or dents. It seems fairly fast, though I haven't pushed it too hard yet. I am happy it has Windows 7 operating system. Not ready to put deal with Win8. The keyboard has a good feel to it, though it was a little dirty. The mouse seems to be responsive, but not squirrelly.

Cons: I was very disappointed that the battery was DOA. It would not take a charge. “0% available (plugged in, not charging)" is what the battery monitor reported. The good news is, I emailed the refurbisher, U.S. Micro Corporation, and got an immediate response. ( A rep named Richard Herman responded, "Sorry, Tom, we will have the battery sent out." I got the battery within 2 business days!

Other Thoughts: U.S. Micro Corp was quick to respond to my DOA battery issue. Although inconvenienced, I was very pleased to get help so quickly.

5 out of 5 eggsNice notebook...

Pros: Robust design, fast i5 M250 CPU, sufficient RAM (Samsung), fast 7200 RPM Western Digital HDD. Excellent display, WINDOWS 7, everything worked out of the box - WI-FI etc. Comes with Windows DVDs (32 and 64 bit). A bargain for the price. NO bloatware installed.

Cons: Keyboard a little grubby but I cleaned it with Q-Tipl. It was certainly cleaner than the ones at work. Very slight scratches on the lid - to be expected with a refurb product. I don't think a 'normal' person would notice this.

Other Thoughts: An awesome notebook for the price. You can get the specs at HP but this is a seriously durable notebook. We paid well over $1k for these at work about a year ago. US Micro is the refurb-er - if that's a word. They did a nice job.
