Here is a review from a previous wooter

As far as the CPU goes you could get better performance out of a used 2008 machine.

Plebeian specs for a really mediocre refurb price. These specs are regularly available at the local office supply store brand new for similar pricing.

Dude, I bought this computer ( yesterday and after seeing this I am having buyers remorse. I am going to use it for presentations and internet usage mainly; no real cpu or graphical taxing applications. I need a fairly good battery life, clear screen for viewing and as lite as possible.

Should I cancel my purchase and go with this Samsung or stick with my original purchase?

Your Dell has a significantly better processor. I’d stick with it.

The AMD processor in this Samsung is comparable to the Intel Atom which is turn competes with the Pentium 4 and Pentium M for raw performance!

The graphics in this Samsung might be a touch better than the Intel HD 3000 in your Dell however. Still not saying much compared to a dedicated graphics chip though.

Well I bought 2x Asus VivoBook Q200E Notebook PC (ASQ200E-BSI3T08)
for $289 each Refurbished from Tiger direct. What do you guys think? Should I get this one and cancel the other?

These were $250 last black Friday, now they are older and more outdated yet even more expensive. BOO WOOT!

Yeah, very bland deal. I bought a Samsung over 2 years ago (albeit for more $$) that has superior benchmark statistics. Recent woot deals have had much better performance for little extra cost.

@jaderok, that Dell Intel i3 spec-wise blows this woot away.

But I’d be mighty concerned about the “Pxxxx” reseller using Newegg’s storefront. Half the reviews of the seller are 1-star, mostly for getting the wrong or defective products.

Cancel that order if can. And look more closely at whether you are really buying from Newegg next time. (Similar risks to buying from a non-Amazon seller on

BTW, 'looks like Newegg wants $310 for the same laptop sold directly from them.

@phissith, Can’t speak for the quality of Tiger Direct refurbs, but if you got that laptop @$289 (current price there is $349) you got a nice deal. In fact, vs, this woot, even at $349 that ASUS looks like a decent value.

Different category of laptop, but much nicer in my view. (Intel I3 CPU, 11.6 inch multitouch display)

Same laptop on moofi for 50 dollars cheaper.

@jasonf1984, good find. And while the risk level and warranty of an openbox deal are worse (text cc’d below), it illustrates nicely that the price of this woot should be closer to $250 than to $290. Woot must not have very many of these $290 versions to price it like this.

Moofi Open box: "The units in this sale are being sold as open box condition. That means that they have been opened due to being a photo sample, a tested good customer return or having damaged packaging. Some items, like manuals, cables or batteries may be missing from the box. That is the reason for the reduced sale price and the reduced warranty.

You can often find i3-based laptops on sale for around $330 new. This is not a deal at all.
