Excellent Deal

on 2/5/2013

After a week of researching refurbished laptops, I found this. It was $450 at the time. I made the back up disks first thing and reloaded the OS, there was an administrator account I did not have a password for(probably from the refurbisher). It is working flawlessly so far. It looks new, the screen is big and has a beautiful picture, came with a 8550mAh extended HP battery, is reasonably fast. It can deal with Starcraft II on low setting very well. It has a full number key pad and enough ports for most needs. I don't think a better buy for a 17.3" machine is going to be easy to find. An Intel machine would have been faster, but their on chip video is lagging behind AMD's and you pay a premium price for the Intel name.
