4 out of 5 eggsRefirb HP Pavilion 17-e049wm

Pros: The computer came as expected, started fast, and so far hasn't slowed down. I bought this to be a school and casual gaming computer, and I actually got more than I expected in terms of gaming. I play lots of Source games (TF2, GMOD, Portal, etc.), and just about any source game you throw at this paired with Razer game booster you'll get high setting (no antialiasing though), at 60-90 fps. If you don' wanna risk using game booster, medium settings can get you 60-75 fps in terms of those same source games. Only other game I tried for refrence is Skyrim, which I needed to tune down to medium settings and 720p to get it between 30-40fps, but thats the only game thus far I've had to drop out of native 1600x900, otherwise it can handle most you toss at it. Its great for casual gaming as long as you don't mind the minor choppiness of no antialiasing. As for other basic programs, the computer eats them up with this processor, no worries at all.

Cons: Though it came with windows 8.1 installed already, I'm very unhappy with it. Its a fairly lousy OS, and when I get an extra cash for an external hard drive I'm gonna wipe this drive and install windows 7 so I can have a decent OS again. 8.1 is still too focused around looking for things that were easy to access before, rather than just keeping it user friendly. I feel bad docking an egg for just the OS but it really has slowed me down from what I'm used to, so its significant enough for me. Otherwise, the specs are great, but be prepared to cope and attempt to deal 8.1, unless you go the windows 7 route too.

Other Thoughts: The computer is a great machine. I got it when it was $439 and it was definitely a great deal, but yeah, if you get past windows 8.1 its a fantastic machine.

1 out of 5 eggsLaptop is dead

Pros: Decently fast, was able to handle any game on low graphics, many games higher than that.

Cons: It is dead. It won't turn on, even with the charger plugged in. I purchased the warranty, so I am using that. If you are dead set on buying this, make sure you get the warranty or you will be out of luck and very angry. Would NOT buy again.

3 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

Pros: Fast Processor
Lots of Storage Space
Cheap Price
Good All-Around Performance
Seems to be a new product

Cons: Windows 8
Flimsy Construction
Lots of Bloat-ware

Other Thoughts: I bought this laptop as a replacement for my A6-3420M laptop. I wanted something cheap but powerful. I decided to go for the highest powered AMD chip with a 17" screen for as cheap as I could get. The performance is great once you dump the bloat-ware, it gets 7.1, 7.2 for processor and ram, and 6.7 for graphics. Like all HDDs it's limited to 5.9.

There are many faults I've found with the Laptop initially, the first is Windows 8... Still sucks, if its not a touchscreen it should be windows 7...

The biggest fault I've found with this laptop is its build quality... It doesn't feel sturdy at all, my previous Acer laptop could take a serious beating and keep going without issue, I feel like this one wouldn't stand a very small drop or bump. I don't even want to carry it with one hand because it flexes so much. I've had the laptop for a day and the keyboard has already "popped-out" in the middle. Also there is a rattling sound coming from the internals (if I tilt the laptop left and right I can hear a piece of something sliding back and forth). I'll wait to send the device in for service since if its just a lose piece that doesn't matter I don't really care...

The the final two faults are very minor, first is that it has a pretty slow/weak internet connection. I have a 600mbps wireless router and 150mbps internet and I can only pull about 40mbps in the same room as the router... My last laptop could pull 65mbps under the same conditions...

The final fault is that the keyboard is the same size as it would be on a 15" (or even smaller) laptop. This means its awkward to use on a lap because naturally your hands are spread wider to hold it but on this you have to keep them closer to the center...

The short of it is that I paid $424.00 for a laptop with an A10 5750 processor, 8 gigs of ram, and a 750gb HDD. It says refurbished but I would be willing to bet these were defective units that never made it to a customer because this laptop looks mint. It's a deal you can't find anywhere, I plan on using it on a desk and bringing my old laptop around for travel.

In case you're wondering the "wm" at the end of the name means this is a w4lm4rt (newegg wouldn't let me say the name) specific laptop. It came with a single W4lm4rt app as part of its bloat-ware, other than that I can't tell...

Hope it helps!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good price. Roomy hard drive. The integrated graphics are not bad. The screen is large and the higher than normal resolution is nice.

Cons: No gigabit wired Ethernet. No dedicated microphone in jack. No key combination to disable the touch pad. Very limited BIOS options (I like to tweak a little bit). It seems to run very hot. As other reviewers have mentioned the viewing angles suck.

Other Thoughts: I am pleased with the laptop especially given the price. It plays casual and older games well. I can even play Mechwarrior online in a pinch if I turn the graphic options all the way down.

Most of my "cons" are nit picky. It really is a good laptop. I would say the two biggest draw backs are how warm it runs and the poor viewing angles of the screen.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good Graphics Card
Great Hard Drive space
Respectable RAM

Cons: Windows 8 slightly glitchy; disabling some features helps

Other Thoughts: Considering its lightning-fast bootup and its capable processor/graphics card combo, this is a great laptop for the price.
Runs most games on mid-high graphics level, but had issues with a console port (Injustice).
Possesses any and all ports an average user needs: USB, HDMI, SD card, Ethernet port, video output, and headphones.
Arrived quickly and in perfect condition.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat computer for a great price!

Pros: Fast start up! Windows 8. A lot for your money. Long battery life. Overall a great computer!

Cons: Windows 8 app store has a lot of errors.

Other Thoughts: Overall a great computer. As other buyers have said it is a brand new computer. if the box didn't say refurbished on it I would believe its brand new. No marking or signs of being used. I have had a lot of problems with the windows 8 app store but from what I have read a lot of people do so i dont believe it has anything to do with the computer. The Problems have been pretty easy to fix. I like windows 8 overall, it does take some getting used to though. Overall a great computer for a great price!

5 out of 5 eggsImpressed

Pros: Very smooth running machine this go around. After having to RMA one because of a defective battery, this second one works perfectly so far. Stats are well above average and will play any game i want on strong settings. Quiet running and cool. i expected it to be much warmer as i have an HPDV7 and very similar in design and it tends to get very warm under your left wrist, but this one is still cool while playing WoW, LoL, and Dragon Age.

Cons: only 2 complaints, main being lack of upgrade option on memory, 8 gb should be fine but i do like to add or at least have the option. second is more nit picky in the the clicks on the trackpad is very loud. never had suck a loud click on one before, even when my wife walks past me in the hall she will here it. neither loses an egg though

Other Thoughts: Very solid and seemingly well built machine. Would recommend to anyone looking for a strong laptop for entertainment and light gaming.

3 out of 5 eggsUnfortunately disappointed..

Pros: -A10 APU
-Strong integrated graphics
-750gb HDD
-17" screen
-Speakers aren't the best but considering the price they are more than what i expected.
-50-100 FPS in WoW on med settings.
-20-40 FPS in Dark Souls 2 medium settings. Lower some of the post processing and it is completely playable.
-WIll play most AAA titles at low-med settings
-Really a workhorse processor for the price.

Cons: -Track pad is... iffy at best, i found it best to use a mouse.
-Would randomly shut off, updated to W8.1 and still found these issues. Fully updated and i can't seem to track it down.
-Tons of HP bloatware
-Unfortunately there is no refund.. i really don't want to have to wait for a replacement.

Other Thoughts: If it were not for the glaring issues of randomly shutting down this would easily be a 4.5 - 5.0 just for the specs:price ratio.

5 out of 5 eggsA great laptop at a good price

Pros: Mine came out of the box as new/untouched. I love the island style keyboard and am learning to love win8. It is a very fast OS and I have had no problems at all except for figuring out "things" inherent with any new OS. Updating to win 8.1 it boots to the desktop is is basically indistinguishable from win 7 now. It has a large drive, plenty of memory, great video, and PLENTY of processor for a great price!

Cons: No "cons" from me...there was not a smudge, a scratch, or a bad pixel to be found with this unit. The battery lasts like it should, it charges like it should, this is a vary "cool" laptop as far as operating temp, so I have no issues there either. Seems almost too good to be true.

Other Thoughts: I would buy again in a heartbeat, and am considering getting another for my daughter.
