I bought one too... It arrived yesterday. This refurb is indistinguishable from new. After applying all 79 updates, this thing is sweet! I'm extremely impressed with the fact that I was able to simply connect my Blue Yeti microphone and it works. In contrast, I had to buy a powered USB hub and USB dongle in order to get it to work with my ipad4.I bought one as well, 32GB Microsoft Surface RT Tablet bundle with Black Touch Cover, $199, minus quadruple e-bucks, $16 - what a deal!
"Refurbished" stickers were easily removed, and the item did not show any previous handling.
I've been looking for my next computer for several months and thought the chromebook would be the ticket: liked the security feature, auto-updating, and cost. However, I just couln't get past the lack of MS Office.
Surface RT with touch cover created sticker shock . . . until an eBay alert got me to view this deal . . . and I jumped on it.
I could not be happier!!!
I'm also impressed with how responsive the touch cover is.
