do you have to worry about cold weather when getting it shipped? Like if it sits outside your door for 8+hours?
No the cold shouldn't damage any components. But I would wait a while for the laptop to get back to room temperature before trying to use it.

I have been looking for a <$500 laptop for web browsing, watching a youtube clip here and there and writing papers. Thats pretty much it unless I watch a movie (once every year maybe, hate watching movies on anything but a TV) I'll never play a game on it. Would you tech savvy guys recommend this laptop for me? Would it last 2+ years? I was thinking of getting a mac but like I said, the gist of my laptop use is web browsing and writing papers for college. THANKS FOR ANY HELP/SUGGESTIONS
*As far as getting a mac goes I was gonna save up on top of the few hundred dollars I have now, but I really really need a new laptop.
This laptop would more than suit your needs for just browsing the web and writing papers. It has a very solid CPU - almost equivalent to an i5. Macs are way overpriced.
You guys think theres a chance a better deal in this price range can come along sometime soon? Its only a few hundred dollars but with the exchange policy and my general lack of funds I want to make the best decision possible. Ive been paying attention to laptop slickdeals for quite sometime and this seems like one of the best ones.
looks pretty good. I wonder how the trackpad is in this thing. I bought a lenovo a few years ago, a G555, I believe. It has been fine, but the touchpad was glitchy, and I've found the wireless card to need a lot of tlc to connect to some networks. So that experience makes me a little bit leery of buying this as an upgrade. showing in stock online still, btw.
