I bought this laptop about a year ago, it was refurbished from eBay. So far the laptop has been good and has been able to do what I have wanted to do. It can run my games that I bought on steam some at low quality and some on higher quality, these games are Garry's mod, Team Fortress 2 and left 4 dead 2 . It has a good start up speed, around 15 seconds and doesn't take long to get onto my laptop. It has a large screen which is useful because I can see films and TV series that I watch clearly. The has a ok graphics card which has been able to run some games, it has a decent amount of RAM and windows 7, which is good because it is easier to use than windows 8 and better than all of the ones before like windows vista.
One of the bad points are that it doesn't have the best battery life, although it isn't bad, it has a battery life of around 4 hours. Also the laptop isn't very portable and is quiet heavy, meaning its not easy to take places.
Overall I would recommend this laptop if it isn't at a high price and so far it has been very useful.
