Other Thoughts: I will try here helping potential buyers of this machine.
If you want one fast and strong laptop for the fraction of price, and you could care less how it looks, go for this one.
You will have to understand the following :
First you will have to understand that what you think of "Refurbished" and what NewEgg and people who actually "refurbished" these machines (Joy Systems) think of it, are two entirely different things.
For the starters, you have to understand why NewEgg has some of these "graded" (B and C) and some are not. According to NewEgg if you don't see grading that means machine is "A" graded. So this one is supposed to be "A" graded.
I received this unit and the palm rest was covered with some lousy plastic. Almost like plastic that manufacturers cover brand new units for the protection. I took off that plastic only to find scratched (hard) plastic below that, with traces of old stickers (and of course glue). If anyone from Joy Systems is reading this : if you think that this job what you did is called "refurbishing", you are sadly mistaken. This would be same as painting the rusted spots on the car.
Screen on this unit was/is in perfect condition.
Another very important thing :
No matter how many times you read questions and answers on this laptop, you will end up confused when it comes to :
integral camera and what kind of graphics/resolution this laptop has. For this, I blame NewEgg. How can you sell something without full description ? Did you ever try buying car, where you MAY have 4 wheels, but you also MAY have 3 wheels ?
My laptop came with camera and mic, so I can install Skype and don't have to use external camera.
It also came with graphic card and high resolution screen (1920 X 1080) - and I am very happy about that.
Overall - for this price, it's hard to beat this laptop. If you can live with the garbage job on the plastics (cosmetic mess), and if you can pull the trigger on the crapshoot about camera and graphic card/screen.
Hence the 3 stars for this review.
This review is from: Oakley BADMAN Sunglasses OO6020-07 Carbon Black Iridium Polarized Ferrari
Pros: Just great.
Other Thoughts: I have total of 8 pairs of Oakleys. This pair is by far the best.
If you have small face stay away from them.
I just could not believe this price. Regular Badman's where $ 400 when they came out and Ferrari edition was $ 100 more.
I was sure I will end up with the fakes. They arrived today, i original box (sealed) and with all proper numbers. 100 % authentic.
I could not be happier.
This review is from: Acer Aspire R R5-471T-51UN Ultrabook Intel Core i5 6200U (2.30 GHz) 256 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics 520 Shared Memory 14" Touchscreen Windows 10 Home 64-Bit (Manufacturer Recertified)
Pros: Like new.
Other Thoughts: Yesterday I pulled the trigger on this little toy.
I ordered it yesterday and received it today (with no extra money for fast delivery). THANK YOU Newegg !
This machine arrived in LIKE NEW condition. If there is grade A, this machine should be grade A+++
It started flawlessly. Super quiet, and fast. Screen is beautiful.
Few things that you should be aware, because when you compare this model to other (more expansive Acer's) with same R14 but different model numbers its not clear does this one have touchscreen and camera. I am happy to inform you that is has both. I installed Skype and called my friend, who told me that this little camera is 10 times better and sharper than my camera (logitech) on my desktop. He said that the image this little camera projects on his screen is unreal.
This machine is super quiet (probably thanks to SSD) and I can't hear the fans kicking on.
Keyboard is the only (so-so) thing on it.
If you are looking for this type of hybrid, go for it. You will and up with great NEW LOOKING machine at the fraction of the price.
