2 out of 5 eggs Think twice before buying a refurbished laptop from Newegg 12/22/2013

This review is from: ThinkPad T Series T61 Notebook Intel Core 2 Duo 2.00GHz 2GB Memory 60GB HDD VGA: Yes 14.1" Windows 7 Professional 32-bit

Pros:

The computer is a good size and runs smooth. Plenty of RAM and HDD space for the application I will be using it for.

It has good battery life, and it arrived very clean. They spent a good amount of time making it look new even though it is a refurb.

Windows 7 activated without any issue when I ran through the activation process.

No bloatware or junk ware installed on computer, just good 'ol Windows and a small text file on the desktop introducing the refurbishing company.

Cons:

The screen is not as bright as I was hoping it would be.

I ordered this and received a computer with a docking station, but 64-bit OS, not a 32-bit OS as advertised. I contacted Newegg for an RMA which they accepted and they replaced the computer.

The computer I received as a replacement had a 32-bit OS, no docking station even though this product is advertised as having one. I contacted Newegg about this and they had me fill out a form about a week ago but have not heard one peep from them since.

I am now a month deep and I still do not have the product that I originally purchased.

Other Thoughts:

Be weary about purchasing refurbished computers on Newegg!

I did call the technical support department of the refurbishing company and they were not very pleasant on the phone. The guy Jim there was talking to me as if I were an idiot. I had a question about a partition which was full on the HDD. Before I could even finish asking my question he told me that it was the recovery portion of the for restoring Windows if I needed to...this was not the case, it turns out it was partition being used by Windows ReadyBoost.

I would avoid purchasing from them.
