Return Shipping
Return shipping cost (the cost to send an item back to our store) is like or comparable to your cost of driving to any store for returning an item, which is not reimbursable. Therefore, we do not reimburse any return shipping cost.

If an item you received is defective, we will certainly replace the item with a new one, however we do not cover or reimburse the shipping cost for returning defective merchandise back to our store. We will ship the replacement product to you at our cost, and use every good measure to ensure that the replacement order is processed quickly.

Only a Dual Core i7. This core is doggy door slow = to AMD A10 cpu.

GT740m = 18fps with Bioshock Infinite. You need at least 30fps to play a game.. Maybe good to play League of Legends or World of Warcraft.. But any new good games will not play or you will have to sacrifice major quality, unpleasant eye candy to get it to barely run.

Battery life, The laptop always runs that power hungry GT740m video card.. Plus it makes the laptop very hot and noisy. Do you really want that? These are refurbished for a reason. A 90 day gamble for $600.. if you can tolerate the down falls.

Refurbished and only 90 day warranty.. You get what you pay for..

Are u sure about the CPU speed?:
http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobi...436.0.html
According to the site above, the Dual Core i7 is ranked higher 111 vs 186, so can't believe it's really slow... & wow never knew the GT 745m cannot perform better than 18fps...is it because of the dual core cpu bottlenecking it? The specs seem like they should perform better.

But maybe you're right, this youtube vid showed FPS dropping like this on BF3.>>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=joso0VeKcko
The only thing I can think of is if resolution is dropped to 1360x768 or 1440x900 then FPS performance should drastically improve +10to20 FPS.

And $10 cheaper.

Can pop in a mSata SSD with this and keep the 1TB HD or buy a $12 caddy that replaces the optical drive and put the SSD there, or use the caddy for a 2nd HD/SSD(along with the 1TB HD).

Nice loud speakers for a laptop.

Very nice/beautiful screen.

Can replace the Intel 7260 N wireless for an AC version for about $25.

You'll be golden as long Buydig doesn't send you the wrong laptop. EEK!

hahahaha.... dude you made my day thanks !!

the i7-4500u will beat the A10 Apu on every single or dual core process, (which major apps use) This laptop is for every day use not for hardcore gaming, video editing.

This laptop uses Nvidia GT745m not a GT740m as you say. But anyway it can handle some games with out a problem. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=joso0VeKcko

The laptop also has intel HD 4400 for all the normal task, the nvidia only kicks in for demanding apps. its something called optimus.

The laptop does not run hot and noisy, in fact is a very quit once you upgrade the Bios.

Also the screen on this laptop is gorgeous, it's an IPS full HD screen, replace the hd with ssd and is a very capable laptop.

however the only thing I wish this laptop had was i7-4700mq
