Why voting cold?
Hot from me; a lot of machine for your money.

Though for games the GPU isn't outstanding; the capabilities of the CPU will be wasted a little in that respect.

I suspect the combination of refurb+acer+amd processor will put off a number of people though.
Although this is a great laptop and I have personally bought 3 of them refurbished from Dixons (for myself and a friend) - I have had to return two of them! The first one's screen kept blanking out and would have to hard reset using the power button to get any life back. The second had bad speakers - lots of crackling and background noise even when muted.

I'm an IT technician so don't mind buying refurbished but when 2 out of 3 laptops both have faults, that's not good. It's an excellent price for a great spec laptop - just hope you get a non faulty one!

Voting hot because assuming you get a good one, it's a great deal!
