Default what do you think of this laptop?

i think its a good deal for the money, it is refurbished; however, there are no rebates to worry about http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...Tab=2&NoMapp=0

do you plan on using it for gaming? if so, then it is a good priced laptop. i would suggest that you get another 512mb of ram if you do plan on gaming.

It won't be very good for gaming. You'll be running everything on lowest settings. Other than that, it's great.

Yeah, it's pretty good for a desktop replacement, but I would look to a Pentium M for
mobility. If money's an issue, then get an old 21W TDP Pentium M; they're still excellent CPU's and have generally better battery life than the newer 27W TDP Pentium M's.

It won't be good at games because of the graphics card. Everything else will be great!

Not impressed? Is it an old Banias core (1MB Cache)? Surely you can't be referring to a Dothan! :P
