Flawless laptop for the specs/price/brand

 

I was expecting to get a laptop with dings and scratches on it since it was used. But this literally looks like it was brand new, major props to newegg. Only reason I gave it 4 stars is because of the hard drive and touch screen issues, but adding that...

Laptop came in perfect condition, not a scratch on it, If newegg didn't label it as refurbished I never would have thought it was used. USB 3.0, HDMI, quad core, 8gb of ram, 1gb HDD, really good decent size thin laptop for $299. you cannot go wrong....

There are only 2 cons about this laptop ; The first is the touch screen issue, the laptop came with Windows 8.1 x64 which is horrible, but the touch screen worked fine. I tried to upgrade to Windows 10 but it asked for a cd key and I never received...

Good Laptop For the money Slow performance

 

Good computer for the money if you want a large touch screen. However with the default HD and the processor I would not recommend this system. I installed a SSD to boost performance and it helped but still on the low end side. I would recommend getting...

Touch Screen ; 15.6" Screen ; Stable running system

Battery internal cannot replace or remove ; Slow Processor ; The overall performance of the system is not great ; faster HD would help

Good deal

 

Got for $403 from PB Tech. Pretty good deal compared to the price, I think :) Appears to be quite better than similar laptops with Intel Celeron processors. Lack of optical drive, to me, is a good thing as most people hardly use it nowadays. I always...

This is objectively a bad laptop

 

The keyboard is like one on one of those toy laptops that were filled with lollies. I'm writing this on one right now, like, it's so bad that I was inspired to throw shade on it on the internet. For some reason there's some cavernous space beneath the...

Consumer review (productreview.com.au)

Alright!

 

The laptop is quite big but it's not too heavy. It doesn't have a cd slot which I didn't notice until I opened the laptop. It's not touch screen but I don't mind especially for the price I got it for. It cost $500 but I got 20% so I bought it for $400....
