4 out of 5 eggsWorking good so far

Pros: Slim and fast has a nice display and good battery life. Linux picked up all the hardware and I didn't have to use any proprietary drivers (I did install the AMD drivers though)

WiFi worked fine without a kernel mod or ndiswrapper.

Cons: Came with windows 8. I don't need it and hate paying for something I'll never used.
case is cheap plastic and scratches easily.

Why must we pay a tax to Microsoft for every laptop we purchase?? I didn't agree to the EULA do I get a refund?

Other Thoughts: I replaced the HDD with a Kingston SSD (also purchased from newegg) the hard drive was not easy to access and requires a complete disassembly of the unit.

Don't attempt this unless you know what you are doing.

1 out of 5 eggsNightmare

Pros: None

Cons: This refurbished laptop was broken the day I received it. Sent it in for repair and it was gone for over a month, with no status updates at all. I got it back a couple of weeks ago, and now it doesn't work - AGAIN. Won't turn on. So it's I'll have to send it in again. Frustrating.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a Steal!

Pros: This was a great deal. the laptop is super fast, no blemishes cosmetically, and runs Win8 really well.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a back up machine, I wish I had purchased two of them!

5 out of 5 eggsFair deal. SUPER fast shipping

Pros: 1) Delivery speed: ordered at 09:45 & had it at 18:30!
2) Delivery cost - only $20.00.
3) Works (my old machine is gasping it's very last breaths...
4) Overall value

Cons: Windows 8. This OS is completely new to me, as I am smart-phone free. Learning curve seems daunting.
It is a wee bit slower than the old machine (when it was at it's peak), but I knew that.

Other Thoughts: I'm once again quite satisfied with Newegg.

2 out of 5 eggsWould have been a good deal if it worked.

Pros: Thin light laptop, good looking, numeric keypad

Cons: There is a short in the monitor which flickers and goes black increasingly more often after the 30 day replacement period was up. I bought this refurbished for replacement only but it didnt get bad till it was too late to return it. Acer has the original owners info on file and I'm trying to get them to acknowledge me as the new owner who bought this machine with a 90 warranty before the 90 days are up. If I had to do it over again I wouldnt. I've always bought refurbished computers with no issue. Guess it was time I got a dud. Unfortunately it may cost me this time.

Other Thoughts: Getting service on this thing is nightmarish. I may end up paying out of my own pocket. If I'd known I'd have to do that, I'd have taken it for service on my own dime weeks ago. I suffer in limbo with a broken computer until I can find out whether or not Acer will service it under the warranty that supposedly came with it. I will never buy another product from Newegg that comes with the caveat that they won't let you return it.

5 out of 5 eggsgood deal as usual

Pros: Cost to product comparison works out to buyers edge. I really am mglad to get rid of the tablet I had (granddaughter is happy now). This is more my style...

Cons: Learning a new OS. Once that is started I'm sure I be just fine.

Other Thoughts: As the standard new egg takes the cake on getting it done.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Quality, Price, and Fast Shipping

Pros: Battery Power lasts significantly longer than previous notebook.
The graphics are fantastic for games such as Sims, Minecraft, and Photoshop
Shipping was quick and hassle free.

Cons: Not a huge fan of the touch pad, so I bought a cordless mouse for it. Problem solved!
Also gets pretty hot after intense use (uploading/downloading etc.)

Other Thoughts: Big fan of the company and of the product. Would definitely buy from Newegg again.
