Pros: The laptop worked great... it is the BEST condition refurb I have EVER seen.... I build about 10 per year for customers. I installed a backlit keyboard on it and got all the software installed. If I had to guess about this laptop, I would swear that it was never put into service.... not a scratch or dent on it.... the keyboard and the touchpad showed no signs of use whatsoever. For $340 and FS, this was an incredible buy!
Get one of these.... maybe you will hit paydirt also!
Latitudes are one of the very best laptops in design, durability and function.... made for traveling.
I build about 100 CPUs per year, I see all kinds of junk, and Latitudes (for laptops) are a blessing to build up... Win7 32 bit blows the 64 bit away on these. It comes with 64 bit installed. Try 32... you will be surprised!
Cons: When I received it, the box had overwhelming evidence of being dropped or had a heavy load stacked on top of it! It was really smashed in. The UPS guy noted that the box was damaged, for a possible claim. In removing the laptop, the laptop mount cardboard was NOT set in the box correctly, but it gave enough protection to the laptop.... see PROs.
Other Thoughts: The box that the laptop was shipped in was to small in height, which is why the cardboard suspension could not be installed correctly. The system worked, but this is a request to Joy (the refurb company) to get the right size box for the cardboard form. I was able to reuse the cardboard form to ship this laptop to Wyoming (from Kansas) in a cut-down U-Haul Medium box (which worked great (better than the one it came in.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR702N Wireless N150 Travel Router, Nano Size, Multifunction, 150Mbps
Pros: I use this as a temporary access point into my network for working on laptops (and testing the wifi on them). I do not have to access my main wifi link or my guest link..... when I want to test, I just plug it in and when I am finished, unplug it. No more possibilities of someone accessing my network or milking the internet. Unplug and done!
Cons: Looks like a birth control pill box?
Other Thoughts: I am going to get a couple more.... several friends and customers have bought these upon my recommendation.... these are really cool!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Got one for my wife and I.... we had the Microsoft Media Pro keyboards with the reflective keyboard stickers on them....
These blow the MS keyboards away! Great illumination, GIANT letters for us old folks, hahahah
This keyboard requires a little adjustment time and the keys do not stick.
Cons: keys are slick, but not bad.
Other Thoughts: My wife and I are IT people.... we go through keyboards like underwear. The Focus 2000 keyboards we used in 1999-2005 were the BEST... MS Media Pro's are still good and usable (used since 2009)... curious as to how long these will last. We love the "planetarium of letters" as my wife calls these keyboards! I use blue and my wife uses the fuchsia.READ FULL REVIEW
