Pros: This thing is wicked fast. The specs on it are great and it was really cheap for those specs. I only played Minecraft on it but also did a lot of multitasking on the internet. And the touchscreen is pretty great with Windows 8 (which I personally don't like But the touchscreen makes it more bearable for me). And unlike the previous HP laptops I've had this one stays very cool. No more burning my legs or hands.
Cons: Being refurbished I expected it to have something cosmetic wrong with it and the first thing I notices was the keybored was flimsy on one side like it was warped. It's hard to explain, sorry. I didn't really care though as it is such a great deal. But later I realized it didn't close right.. When it was closed the left side had a gap between the screen and base.. This was annoying for me but I figured I would just deal with it too.
What really frustrated me with this computer is the wireless adapter was unreliable. I tried sooooo many fixes I found online (apparently it's a common problem) but my internet continued to get disconnected. I had to reset the wireless adapter 5+ times a day. With how much stuff I do online this was unacceptable. So I ended up returning it and I'm currently waiting for a replacement.
One more thing that annoyed me was I always seemed to place my hands on the wrong keys when going to type.. I swear the keyboard should have been placed differently. Maybe I'm just not used to it though.
