Ok, no one seems to like windows 8, but that's not a hardware issue. I bought this as a cheap, gaming(I know this is an oxymoron) laptop for my 13 year old. He insisted upon the larger 17'' screen. So far he loves it. We were hesitant about the AMD8 processor, but it plays Minecraft better than our I-7 processor laptop. I am guessing because of the Radeon graphics card. The battery life isn't the greatest, probably about 2 hours on Minecraft. This is expected with the larger screen. It looks like new, despite being refurbished. If you want to spend another hundred dollars, you could probably get a slimmer 15" HP Envy, but this is a decent value for a 17".
