Pros: Got here in 2 days.
Cons: General condition of equipment:
Was there even an attempt made to clean this thing before shipping it?
- Laptop was filthy, skin, keyboard gunk, etc in the keyboard.
-The case was cracked immediately below the trackpad.
- Rubber pads on bottom missing in a way that make the laptop rock back and forth on a flat surface
Not as advertised:
-DID NOT include the high capacity battery shown in the picture. The product description did not mention the battery type, what was I supposed to think?
-Came with a CD-RW, not a DVD-RW as described.
- Upon powering on the laptop, it promptly displayed "fan error" and turned itself off.
Verdict: Will never buy refurbished again.
Other Thoughts: Potential uses:
Holding out hope for a refund, as I feel a replacement would show up in the exact same state. Some people may have gotten a 'good one', but don't count on getting one yourself.
Pros: Not a single dead pixel or line. VERY thin. VERY bright. Responsive. One year on and it hasn't changed a bit, which brings me to...
Cons: On both lower corners there is VERY, VERY visible light 'bleeding' from the corners about 1/5 of the way toward the center of the screen. It's so bright I can't read black on white text if it's near the corner. This effects EVERYTHING!
What is supposed to be black is instead black with two near-white bottom corners. I cannot stress enough how awful this effect is.
Next, while it is thin, this is entirely offset by its horizontally oriented inputs. I suppose it's a good thing there isn't a DVI input, that would look silly.
Also.. the quality of construction. Lets just say I can feel the savings when i pick it up.
