My augmented reality startup could just buy like 5 of these and chain them together to make the appropriate AI Overlord...if my calculations are correct.

What kind of shape will these be in?

Will they appear new in box to fool a tween who still believes?

To those who have bought woot refurbished before: what kind of condition should I expect this to be in?

Particularly the battery. Do they test or replace it, or am I taking a chance on whether the thing can hold a charge?

Screw it. Took a shot for under $200.

Hopefully, it looks new.

I have bought both a refurbished HP desktop and a HP laptop over the last year. Both items came as if they were new.
I wouldn't worry.

Not this model, or even this year, but my experience on buying refurbs from HP has been really negative. I keep buying them because they're the cheapest, and I keep figuring out why.

Screens, touchpads, and other hardware parts going in-and-out without cause or warning has been my history with them.

The price on this is really attractive, so this may be a good buy for someone that doesn't know if they want a notebook. If you do, you can buy a real one later. if you don't, you did't waste too much coin.

I bought one of these new several (5?) years ago for $299. It still keeps chugging along. Never used the touch screen much, but now that I use a tablet more, I use it on the HP a bit more. Got knocked off my desk to an uncarpeted office floor and took a corner out, but it still worked.

Mine was Windows 8 with the free upgrade to 10.

Not the most exciting laptop I've used, but it takes a lickin and keeps on tickin.

I have had mixed experiences with "refurbs" from Woot. Almost unanimously excellent, but one laptop looked like it had been drug down a sidewalk on a chain.

Who services the warranty on woot refubs?

EDIT: nevermind, I see that it's "Advanced Skyline Technology", whoever that is.

Did you remain at 4GB RAM or upgrade to 8GB? I'm curious whether the performance is significantly better with increased memory.

Not to burst the bubble. But if you want to give this pc a shot... its on Amazon right now for 89.99. Same model.

“Refurbished” covers everything from buyers’ remorse returns and products whose defects have been repaired by the pros to damaged packaging and discontinued items. If you can accept their checkered past, refurbs have a lot of love to give.

Used, not a touch screen, Windows 7, no warranty, and seller has a 82% rating.

So not the same.

For anyone curious about benchmarks:
PassMark CPU Mark: 2445
PassMark G3D Mark: 561

And here's a link to the Maintenance and Service Manual for those looking to tinker.

For a daily-driver laptop, this machine will serve just fine, and at this price, it's a great upgradeable alternative to a Chromebook or one of the low-end Windows 10 laptops with eMMC drives and soldered RAM.

It only has a single RAM slot, but it is upgradeable to 8GB. Plop a budget SSD into this machine to replace the pokey hard drive, and you'd have a speedy little daily-driver.

I bought a similar Lenovo with 4gb RAM and 128gb SSD, I like it. I wonder if a touchscreen would slow this laptop down.

How do you tell if it's 204 or 240 pin? Just open it up and compare?

It's a really good deal, it's more expensive on other sites.

This laptop uses DDR3 Low Voltage (DDR3L) RAM SODIMM's, which are generally the 204-pin variety. The specific 8GB RAM spare part listed in the service manual is this one on Amazon, but any 2GB, 4GB or 8GB DDR3L SODIMM should work.

I purchased a "refurbished" Lenovo M72Z computer this week from Woot. I received it today. I will never by another "refurbished" product from Woot. Here are my comments on that deal:

Lot's of issues: 1. What is pictured is not what you get!!!! 2. I did not receive a power cord, keyboard or mouse. 3. In the actual model shipped, the computer/display sits on a post which slides up and down into the base. The plastic ring which sits around the post is broken. Possibly due to shipping. 4. You can hear the hard drive, so it's not likely a very good one. 5. Cosmetically, I would say that this one is in "fair" condition. Quite a few noticeable scratches in the plastic and lots of dust. It looks like it's had some hard use.

Bottom line - This looks like it was sold by some second or third tier ebay website, not from Woot. I will not purchase another refurbished item from Woot and I suggest that you don't either.

[VMod edit: -- but that's a way different product than what's offered here. You've been replied to in the respective product thread already.]

To whoever Vmod is, if there is a story in defense of Woot why don't you share it?

Bought my HP desktop off woot almost 4 years ago. Came with everything (except monitor) and have loved it since day one! Refurbished--couldn't tell, like new. It may have been one of those old "sponsored" deals, can't remember. I'm sure it's not good enough for the speed-boy gamers, but I can actually play some cool games and the graphics are fine on med resolution. I'm just looking back at my "stuff I bought" list and wow, am very happy with almost everything. Last big thing was an Amazon fire, the good one, so glad I sprung for that to replace the Galaxy note 4 that had aged a bit. The fire too was new or couldn't tell it was ever even used. So please take up your problems with cust service, don't discourage others from cutting some good deals here.

Never gave it much thought, as it worked well enough for my needs. I do have a desktop PC with 8GB and it is faster, using the same apps.

I've always thought so too, but I've never received a refurb as "well-travelled" as this one.
