Most helpful reviews

Confirmed purchaser

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
As new -- can't believe it is reconditioned! Keyboard positive and responsive, with the numeric pad a real bonus. And the 17" screen is a huge improvement over my previous machine (Gateway). Can't comment on the battery life, as I am using it with mains supply in the meantime.
Bad points:
Haven't found any yet, apart from the finger marks (but, hey! I'm not houseproud).
