Rating: 3/5 Good means Good April 9, 2017 I usually buy used computers in the range of Very Good, Excellent, Like New, etc., but decided that I would try one described as "good." I had been very pleased that the used machines that I bought were indistinguishable from new, You really didn't notice any difference in the quality. Good condition at the bargain price you get seems to mean that you will notice something "used" about the product. In my case it was the display screen with an irritating "skid mark" across the mid-range of the screen. The trade off of price for product was still more than acceptable. I had wanted to try an 11 inch machine and it was there for me when I spilled a sticky drink into the keyboard of my main machine, but I probably will spend a little more in the future so as to avoid the constant reminder that the product is used. If you are deciding between the described condition of used products, you'll want to be prepared for a more apparent difference at this level.

Rating: 5/5 good value for the money December 11, 2016 I needed a smaller machine for traveling, and after researching ChromeBooks I decided to try a used Macbook Air. So far it works great, the condition is good, as described, with some scratches and marks, but nothing you wouldn't expect from a 4-year old computer.
