Great product, but careful with HP refurbs7/29/2009
Okay, so I can tell this is a good computer, just got it the other day. BUT, I noticed that the top half centimeter of the screen was being cut off. After inspection, I realized that they had replaced the screen with one that was too big for the screen frame. That's some really bad refurbishing quality control! HP was very easy to work with though and will repair it (NOT replace) for free, but that's another week and a half for me. Still, like I said, this is a very slick computer. Not the greatest value, spec-wise, but the great design and aesthetics make up for it. Just know you're taking a risk with the refurb.
Bought this for my daughters birthday present. It works great and she loves it. Very portable with an excellent keyboard for a mini. Loaded MS Office Professional and this mini works great for writing, homework, email and internet. Also does work with some games too - Sims - when you hook up an portable/external DVD drive. Highly recommend - you would never know it was refurbished. Great for traveling.
Better than expected6/5/2009
The compact and lightweight laptop is ideal for carrying. It performs as a new computer, even though it is refurbished. I am a Mary Kay beauty consultant and having this computer allows me to have my customer's information at my fingertips while I'm away from my home office. The programs that are installed on this computer are even more up-to-date than on my CPU.
