Pros: Girlfriend enjoyed opening it for Christmas.

Cons: Did not function. Charge it up it, turned it on, and aside from a quick whirring of the harddrive, nothing. No screen, no noise. After a couple restarts got an error message that it couldn't find OS file. Went to pursue one of the on screen options and the entire screen threw up random colored pixels across the screen and froze. After a few more attempts, got into Bios. Move to scroll through options and immediately pixelated and seemed to freeze.

Usually extremely satisfied with New Egg purchases, so was very disappointed.

Will be calling support tomorrow. Almost certainly will end up shipping it back, (huge hassle to deal with). Also very disappointed in no recovery medium and a one page unclear leaflet saying recovery partition had been removed in the refurbish process. Leaflet claimed some instructions on creating recovery medium under windows 7. Source of instructions did not appear evident. Windows 8 is what is supposed to be on Laptop, so would be of dubious value even if source of instructions were clear.

Other Thoughts: Would have prefered win7 OS, incidentally.

Will update review if able and circumstances change.
