Pros: -Price -Stability -Speed -Hidden partition works smoothly -Ventilation -Style/Feel -Mouse Pad (takes getting used to)
Cons: -Mouse takes getting used to, but after you do its super easy, and funny to watch people who've never used it before! -No hard copies of software included (at least not in my re-certified one.) But honestly I'm not sure if a lot of laptop sellers offer that anymore for free.
Overall Review: Had this for about 7-8 months now, and its super stable. I even accidentally totally erased the main partition (trying to experiment with a new Linux distro.) and was able to use a hidden partition to restore to factory settings. The entire time I've owned it, I found it got really slow for a couple days, but I think it was due to an installation of a java program (could be wrong, I don't work with java much). I totally uninstalled java and its components and it sped back up! Also I've ran it this entire time on the original 2 gigs of ram and Win7 is still very responsive. Definitely one of my best financial calls!
