I know this is an AMD A8 8600B, and refurbished, but it's been difficult to find FHD 1920x1280 screens on the Sub-$300 laptop. The A8 8600b is benches marginally better than some of the Intel i3 series. It's also got 8gb ddr3 and a 256gb SSD with Windows Pro 64bit. 1 year warranty. $6.99 shipping on the site.

According to a laptopmag review:

The Pros
Attractive chassis; Powerful speakers

The Cons
Shallow keyboard; Inaccurate screen; Short battery life; Runs hot

Verdict
The EliteBook 745 G3 is a sleek business notebook, but its keyboard, display and battery life leave a lot to be desired.

Is FHD = IPS? Or are those two different things?

I'm trying to figure out if this is a matte/TN screen or not.

For the price seems to be good but the A8 8600B is a 2015 processor. So a 3 year old model. Might be a bit of a risk.

They are completely different things. This is FHD, no IPS technology so viewing angles will still result in not being able to read the screen if you're not in front of it..

I would really be concerned with the CPU. It may match some 3-year old i3s but it will be hot and loud. Good screen and size though. Does not beat Costco's $299 HP deal for me.

Two different, IPS panels have better color accuracy and a wider viewing angle without color shift than TN panels.
