Pros: Very happy with this. It does just what I want, it's easy to use, and it seems well designed and well built.
Cons: It's a little expensive.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Machine seems fast, and as a refurbished machine shows no sign of wear or previous use. The screen is wide and has great resolution. It was available only in brown, but that's probably what I would have chosen anyway.
Cons: I'm not especially satisfied with this computer. For one thing, it has a French keyboard, with an extra backslash key to the left of the return key. I continue to hit that key when I'm going for the return key (which is small to accommodate the extra useless key). I also have had more challenges with viruses, maleware and spyware on this computer than I've ever had, and it started right out of the gate. It makes me suspicious that it was already infected. After 2 weeks I still get popups that I don't want, and to block popups I have to block advertising that I want, and I still get popups that I don't want. I'm also continually redirected to sites that ask me to do surveys (including surveys for NewEgg).
Other Thoughts: I'm on a learning curve for Windows 8 with this machine. MS has added some senseless icons and extra steps that slow things down. Also, there's no direct way to shut down or reboot, or to find all programs. And Windows Explorer was hidden until I pinned it to the taskbar.READ FULL REVIEW
