1 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware Metro Business Systems

Pros: This is not new egg selling you a refurbed item. it is some company Metro Business Systems. They are not responsive to solving problems that were apparent immediately after the unit arrived. There did NOT appear to be any checklist or QA ahead of time that guaranteed a workable unit.

Cons: The keyboard was faulty from day one. Even though they sent a replacement, that is down time for using a laptop that I purchased in good faith. Then I started getting fan errors. I sent the unti back with an RMA for a return, but now I cannot contact anyone about the status.

Other Thoughts: New egg, you should be more clear that this refurbished product was not maintained by you directly. I'm no stranger to refurbished equipment. Ive purchased directly from Dell and Lenovo Outlet before and those experiences were great. I feel i purchased a laptop from a garage sale. only now, I have no laptop or money to show for it.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks dual boot with linux

Pros: Partitioned disk into two NTFS sections for Win7 and one ext4 section for linux. Ended up with about 150GB usable out of 160GB.

linux Mint 14 loaded and runs fine. Dual boots Win7 and linux.

Upgraded memory to 8 GB and both Win7 and linux recognize it. Everything works, including wireless lan, except fingerprint reader. USB mouse works along with touchpad.

Cons: Even from the BIOS, cannot boot dvd. It recognizes and accepts the boot, but will not carry through. Will not change from f12 either. I had to install grub in the hidden partition to allow dvd boot. It also installed in the main partition with the install so there are two boot sections. No big deal, but a bit messy. Both opsys work fine.

No fingerprint reader in either Win7 or Mint.

Other Thoughts: Arrived in good condition but with a less than stellar box. With the upgrade in memory, I now have a fine laptop for a reasonable price. Total cost about US$385. Nice. I would do it again if I could be asssured of the same quality.
