This is the second recon I've bought and I'm just as happy with this one as the first. Just like a brand new one but without the retail packaging. Superb value for money.
Bad points:
Two dead pixels but apart from that I've nothing bad to say about it.

James, Taunton

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good Price
Bad points:
Memory configuration makes it difficult and more expensive to upgrade ie: there are 2 512mb modules fitted, it would have been more sensible had a 1gb module been fitted in the slot under the keyboard therefore making it simple to upgrade to the maximum 2gb without having to take it to a technician. Also no manual or recovery discs came with the product as stated on the website.
