Toshiba Satelitte P75-A7200 Laptop (Manufacturer Refurbished)

This powerful Toshiba laptop provides a portable workstation powered by a swift Intel Core processor and 8GB of memory. Integrated Bluetooth technology allows the laptop to wirelessly sync with smartphones, tablets, and external speakers. Enjoy media as it was meant to be seen thanks to Resolution+ technology, which makes the picture as crisp and clear as this laptop's harman/kardon speakers make the audio. Users can also stream music and charge devices as the laptop sleeps, preserving its power in anticipation of Y2K, which, for some reason, it thinks hasn't happened yet.

Drivers that work with Windows 7 64-bit for this laptop (needed when you want to *upgrade* to Windows 7) [From Notebook Review [notebookreview.com]

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thought I would share and help out. Just downgraded this model laptop to Win 7 x64 Ultimate. Hopefully this is useful for some people out there! I took a lot of time to re-confirm the links to post

Drivers that all seem to work:

I hate downgrading and hunting around because the OEMs have tried to lock down their specific hardware specs, or only offer Windows 8 support now. I remember when you bought a laptop and you could do whatever you wanted with it, not secureboot+windows 8+possibly no working drivers for your OS

This looks awfully tempting; but I can wait...what is the consensus ON BF deals? Are we likely to see many laptops much better than this for the same money or less?

(yeah - I know - if you had crystal balls, you wouldn't waste em on this - but is there any idea on what to expect in a couple months?)

I could see this one making it past the 2 year mark.

For the most part Laptops fail because of dust buildup which leads to heating issues etc. If you have a laptop cooler, don't smoke, and ocassionally blow the dust out of your keyboard etc, and don't game all the time for long periods of time, your laptop will last alot longer. Gaming really lowers the lifespan of a laptop.

So to put an ssd, you'd have to take out the current HD, right?

Probably not because this is a special groupon deal on a limited number of refurbished laptops. Basically BF will have new laptops at places like best buy and staples which will be I3's/i5's/A6-A8's and 15'' screens or smaller and they will run $400-$650 probably before tax. So you won't get the same bang for your buck other than having a brand new laptop. Definately not a 4th gen I7 processor though on a 17'' screen.

I highly doubt it's metal ( MacBook Style ) It's probably plastic all over with aluminum inserts( which don't really make a difference ).

Amazon review:
"The sides and bottom half of the laptop are all plastic, while the keyboard, palm area and top lid are brushed aluminum."

Tons of laptops are refurbished, look at the thousands on Lenovo's site. Doesn't mean they are all bad, they just may have broken pieces of the shell that need fixed, or cracked screens during shipping. Either way, a refurbished laptop is usually better than a new one because the kinks have been worked out and it's been restored to factory conditions which means if it did have a faulty part it was fixed and won't have problems in the future.

Yes exactly..the only drawback on this laptop for most will be the HD. I personally don't care for a touchscreen. I just installed my 840 pro in this bad boy...

Thanks for the reply, I didn't see anything on there about being an extra bay. However, after reading reviews on amazon, one guy said this:
"The hard-drive that came with this system holds back its potential. It's a 750GB drive that runs at 5400RPM. I swapped it for aa SSD (Samsung's 840 series at 250GB). To my excitement, I found that there is a second hard-drive bay in this system after exposing the internals. This laptop (P75-A7200) has one screw that holds on the bottom panel."

Pulled the trigger, hopefully it has an extra slot so I can get a smaller ssd to only hold the OS. Otherwise, I'll just get a larger SSD and run everything from that.

I have a Toshiba that's going on three years and the only problem I've had is with the mouse button but that's about it.

I hate that they make you use their video drivers but that's fairly common with laptops.

The only thing keeping me out of this deal is that it's still $550 + tax for a laptop I can't play Batttlefield 3 on.

I'm going to see how this i5 17" from Lenovo for $350 works out before I spend another $200.

Awesome I didn't know that.. Let me know the outcome of that if you will...
