It’s definitely a few years old, but not a bad deal on a decent laptop.
All other sites (and the photo) indicate this has a webcam. Is there no webcam or is that a typo?
I swear I’m not vain, I just for very odd reasons need a webcam on my laptops.
this is my current laptop. i added an ssd and it is going strong. the internal components: hdd, ram, fan are easily accessible. this is better than chromebooks and most laptops at this price. it is a little older but the 2nd gen i5 + ssd make everyday computing a breeze.
Would this be good for a high school student who is dual enrolled in college? Looking for an affordable laptop for my son. And he said he prefers Windows 7.
Bought this in a previous sale. Works great, only issue I’ve had is the the battery and/or charging cable. If the battery is 100% and still plugged in, the CPU usage is constantly at 95-100%. If I unplug it, it’s fine. Seems like a pretty common issue based on my google searches. I just leave it unplugged and charge it when necessary. Note the listing for the one I bought said no webcam, no bluetooth and no fingerprint reader, but I ended up with all three features. They probably have some models with and some without, so no guarantees.
I just bought a similar one for $159 https://secure.newegg.com/NewMyAccount/OrderHistory.aspx?RandomID=94295204581691020151204043211. I should receive it today and verify whether it truly is in “grade A” condition. Now to be fair, the one I bought only has: 4GB memory, it has 32 bit W7 but I can convert it to a legit W10 64 bit for free http://www.howtogeek.com/228042/how-to-switch-from-32-bit-windows-10-to-64-bit-windows-10/ DVD ROM (not Burner) and a regular 320GB HD. For me this is a better deal because I already have spare memory, a spare burner, and I just bought a 240 GB SSD http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00S9Q9VS4?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00 when it was on sale on 11/28 for $60.
These are decent computers (I use one for work). The are solid laptops with good keyboards. The resolution is sub-par at either 1366x768 or 1600x900 (mine at work is 1600x900), but I’m a pixel whore - so anything below 1920x1080 is a waste of my time.
At this price, the woot offering is not bad. The 128GB SSD in there is smallish, and you don’t know what kind of mileage is on it. It would be nice if it came with the better 1600x900 screen, 8GB of RAM is plenty despite what some people think.
These are very competent laptops. Not sure if he’d want to use it for 4 years hardware spec wise. However he’ll be able to get Windows 10 so it’s good software wise.
I had this as a company issue. I hated the weight and the keyboard. I really thought this was a downgrade from the Lenovo Thinkpad T410 I had previously. Also, the case dented very easily, so when the hard drive controller finally died (common with this unit), the unit looked like crap. The HP Probook that replaced this is much better. Maybe you folks will be buying my old machine. Good luck with that.
I bought this a couple of months ago and love it. I do some GoPro editing on it and guitar tabs. Pretty much screams through everything. The 128GB SSD is a great combo with the older i5. This is more than adequate for college, for sure! I recently snagged 16GB of RAM from Newegg and plopped that in last week. It’s extremely quick for a total of $300 (memory upgrade included).
I believe the woot specs are incorrect as my machine definitely detects the 16GB of ram.
Would this be good for a kid, to play Minecraft, and other such games, as well as for school work next year?
I bought 2 of these for 2 friends a few months ago from Woot. I was very pleased. The only downside is they are heavy and have a smaller size screen. But the SS HD made the boot very quickly into W7 and performed great. Not sure it would be fast enough for a gamer, but for these 2 college students it was perfect. I opened them up and inside was so clean they looked brand new, inside and out. Both I received DID have a webcam.
Yes- this has plenty of power for that. It’s not a gaming computer by any means, but it will play some games- here is a list http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/intelhdgraphics3000_2000/sb/CS-032052.htm
Minecraft will not be a problem on this computer, it’s not on that list (but the list is a bit dated). I know for sure that Minecraft will play on this though.
Looking at the pictures and reading the comments lead me to believe that this does have a webcam. The specs say no webcam. I’m ready to pull the trigger, but I would like it clarified. Will this come with a webcam?
Typing this on a EliteBook 8460p with 16gb RAM and 237gb SDD. My laptop has a webcam, keyboard light (next to webcam) and a fingerprint reader. This is a work issued laptop. People complain that it is too heavy for travel (because a lot of people in my office have to travel) and they prefer the newer lighter slim laptop my workplace now provides. I don’t travel and I don’t have any problems with this laptop. With the 16gb and SDD this laptop is plenty fast. I used to have the same laptop with 4gb and a HDD and it became slow gradually. Then my work kindly upgraded it to its current spec and I couldn’t be happier. It is running windows 7. The laptop I have looks IDENTICAL to the one pictured here. I think 250 is a decent price for it but wouldn’t count on it lasting 4 years. 3 years would be stretching it.
I bought 2 a few months back of this model and they both DID come with a webcam. Very happy with my order.
Yes unless he does 3d graphic design.
