      These were released around 2010 which doesn't seem that long ago but in computer terms it was a long time ago. At the time it was high end and has an exceptional build quality but is thick and heavy. Display port instead of HDMI. Most people would be better off buying new technology but people who use CAD may consider this because it uses a graphics card that would be supported meaning there would be a compatible driver for the workstation 3100M card produced by the software manufacture to download and install.

      On the positive side you get Windows 7 which I'd take over Windows 8 on new tech any day.

      Display resolution is pathetic.
      CPU is 4 generations older than current Haswell-gen CPU.
      that NVIDIA discrete graphics add-on is nice but... it won't run CUDA and is only really useful if you run modestly demanding CAD apps on an external monitor.
      else, hold on to your cash and buy a 4th-gen core-i3 or AMD-A6 based machine by Thanksgiving.

      Yeah, I'd rather have an AMD Kaveri A8 machine over this one.

      Sandy Bridge (Core 2xxx series) is where Intel laptops really got good. I wouldn't consider anything older than that.

      The NVS 3100M is absolute garbage and NOT for ANY gaming. The A8's onboard (on-chip, really) graphics will beat the 3100M down with a baseball bat in Office Space style. The 3100M is basically a Geforce G 110m. Not even GT (and definitely not GTX). But hey, it'll run Minesweeper at a full 60FPS, so there's that.

      ^^^Agreed.

      Yeah not for gaming at all, purely work station related. Having a supported graphics driver is really important for some software and this would be a really cheap way to get started. With that said I'd save some money to buy a Sandy Bridge or newer workstation laptop used on Ebay which will cost $500 or more.

      Old computer yes. But good choice for price, and just keeping in touch.

      maybe this would be a good hackintoshable laptop. HP Pro books are known to be the most easiest to be made into macs

      Good for the person whom doesn't care for the perfect specs and the refurbished condition for a fraction of the price.

      good specs and great comments.
      5 lbs is a bit on the heavy side, but is guess for an i7 that's acceptable.
      as far everything else, for this price it's right on.
      I personally would never buy anything from Newegg that's refurbished; it's more like reselling used item.
      it's probably like a off-lease from businesses.
      pass!
