Consumer review (

ASUS X52 Series X52F-XR9 Refurbished Notebook Intel Pentium P6200(2.13GHz) 15.6" 4GB Memory DDR3 320GB HDD DVD±R/RW Intel HD Graphics


I really though it could have been packaged better. I work for a shipping company during the holidays and I know what happens to boxes through transit. It's not a pretty site I expected there to be a windows 7 cd at least, but only the bare essentials...

Seems like a nice computer so far, no cons on the effectiveness

Did not come with a windows 7 cd, it just came installed on the laptop already. Also came with a small 30 page user manuel, and battery charger
