I had this as a previous work laptop, going from a thinkpad. Flimsy and light, battery was good then dropped off so fast.

Good price though

To anyone considering this, this is a very old model and this is a used unit so you could be buying a notebook that's just about to die.

Not a great deal.I would agree with others used laptop with slow cpu.

Now at the same time finding something for under $300 probably wont happen either.

There aren't any off-lease laptop deals at the moment in that price range.

Last year I got a refurbished HP Revolve G2 for $299.99 from staples. It had an i5-4200U, 8gb Ram, 256Gb SSD and touchscreen.

Supposedly it has better single core and multi core speeds (http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i5-4 ... -Pro-7150B), if you believe in benchmarks.

Edit: I think this was the listing (https://www.staples.ca/products/2971009 ... ows-10-pro)

Those are the 1st gen of i5, which are 10 years old already. A8 is even slower than i3 3rd gen. And A8+HDD would drive you crazy. If you want an old laptop below $300, go on eBay and get a used one. I bought an HP Elitebook 810 G2 last year for $200 and it has been working very well. Remember to choose from i3 4th gen or i5 3rd or newer, and M.2 SDD.
