Good points:
wasn't sure what to expect from a reconditioned lap top, but i was more than pleasantly surprised. it's like having a brand new lap top without the ball ache of installing everthing. its fast great memory for what i need it for. looks good and i would recommend this model to anyone looking for a new lap top. its amazing quality and value for money.

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
To be Good looking and seems physically well made. Other laptops for around the same price looked in comparison cheap and nasty - like they were made with the lowest price components possible - shiny plastic, slippery keys, etc. The Satellite looks like a more expensive machine. Before it stopped working, I was very pleased with it. It seemed fast enough, and connecting to the internet was easy, both with a wire and wirelessly.
Bad points:
Went badly wrong in after 2 days - took 20mins to boot up, kept getting random error messages pop up complaining of missing files, internet wouldn't work. I think it may have been a virus.


1. Before you get a refurbished one, check the price of a new machine.

2. Before you start using the internet, buy a few DVD Rs and follow the pop-up window which comes up automatically and shows you how to back up the machine. Then click on the flag symbol in the system tray and follw the instruction to back up Windows. I found it easy to do although I haven't needed them yet (touch wood!).

3. Keep glancing at the system tray to check for warnings that McAfee is not protecting your machine from viruses. McAfee came free with mine for a limited time, but kept switching itself off. I have now installed Avast (for free) and have uninstalled McAfee. I have so far had no problems with Avast.

4.Even my new machine had a problem. It would not do Wireless internet whilst the laptop was running off it's battery. A pretty serious problem, if you think about it! I managed to fix the problem eventually. I looked in Control Panel>Device Manager>Network Adapters and found my adapter is the Realtek RTL8188CE. I went to the Realtek website>downloads and searched for RTL8188CE. I downloaded the driver and ran the setup file (it doesn't download if you've disabled your cookies).

This is fine, if, like me, you know just enough about computers to work all this out. Plenty of people don't, and they shouldn't have too. You should not have to repair your brand new laptop - it ought to arrive properly working. Anyway, if you do get a Satellite, we aware you might have to sort out the driver as I did. Or maybe I was just unlucky.
