Good points:
This was purchased fro my daughter and we have found it to be a useful and well made product. It performs very well and has a host of features that you would only get on a more expensive new model. The product was delivered in what appears to be a new condition and is data cleaned and a full reinstall done.
Bad points:
The TECHGUYS stuff that keep popping up all the time.

i know we can download the manual, but finding the pages required takes some sorting through,as we are
not very young.
