Pros: Core i3
4 Gigs of ram is onboard no way to upgrade.
Cons: Non existing support.
Hard drive that comes with it is slow. I should look up the model number but I am betting it is a 4200 rpm drive with a very small cache. Another odd note. MY LG Bluray USB 3 burner does not work on the USB 3 port but is does on the USB 2. An external USB 3 drive I have works fine on the USB 3 port. That is just odd. I guess I should go see if there is a USB 3 drive update for this also. I might have missed it when I was updating all the rest.
Other Thoughts: Not sure why but I could not update my other post. So if you ever wonder what happens after ASUS supports submits something in this form well you reply to the e-mail address and they do nothing. I have checked my spam folder nothing in it. So you send off an e-mail and it goes straight into their deleted folder is my guess. It does make you wonder if you list out your problems here why do then not just tell you how to fix them? I need to make a copy of the media so I can reinstall. How do I do that? AI Recovery was not on the computer like it was supposed to be so how do I get it? It is not available from your download site for the notebook.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Core i3
4 GB of ram
Cons: Not sure if this is typical of asus refurbished equipment but this next book looks like an untrained idiot tried to get into it. If this was the tech trying to fix it or the previous owner I do not know. It looks like they did not remove any screws and tried to pry open the notebook all the way around the edges. Well I guess it is like a used car I do not need to worry about dinging it up. Next the only thing that came in the box with it other than the power cord was a piece of paper that said I could use AI Recovery to make physical media for recovery. Well guess what it does not have that installed so no idea why that was in the box. Now I have to figure out how I can recover if needed. Man I wish I could include pictures.
Other Thoughts: If this is not typical then it might be an OK deal. Be planning on upgrading everything on it though. Now if you think about it this went to a certified place to be fixed and they were supposed to put it through stringent testing to make sure everything is good with it. The BIOS was 2 revisions back and no idea how many driver versions it was back. I love Newegg and I love ASUS products. I just am never buying another refurb again.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Wanscam Wireless Wi-Fi IP Camera 13 IR LED Night Vision Dual Audio Webcam
Pros: Remote camera control from phone
Works good in no to low light
Has Mic for remote listening
Cons: Short power cable
Other Thoughts: I bought this as a baby moni8tor. It works great. It connets to our wireless netowork and we use our phones to view through the camera and we can even hear what is going on in the room. Cool scary part is this by default reaches out to the internet through my firewall and I can from anywhere view what is going on so make sure to cahnge the default accounts and set a good password.READ FULL REVIEW
