I've been looking for a nice i5 or i7 laptop with a backlit keyboard. Just stumbled upon this refurb at best buy. Non refurb sells for $729 so I think $449 is quite a deal. At 4.2lbs it's pretty light as well. Overall looks great for an i7. Can't wait to get mine.
8 GB RAM is a plus, most users wont need to waste money upgrading that. If you want to use this for something more than an email/web surf machine I suggest investing in an SSD. Gaming wont be too good on here, maybe GTA 4 on low/med is the best youll get with this.
The Number crunching CPU on here + SSD upgrade should keep most photo/video editing hobbyists satisfied til they get a bigger budget.
Great price. Reviews are mostly favorable. Many folks mentioned crappy speakers which has become a deal breaker for me. Hard to watch movies or videos if you always have to plug in headphones or speakers. If that's a non issue, I'd grab one!
Not bad. Would you rather have this or the one I bought from Groupon a couple weeks ago (Asus Win 7 128 SSD i5 full HD res 13" 4 gb [non upgradeable])? This one seems like a pretty good deal although res not the best. Plus this has an optics drive.
