I received an advertisement this afternoon from Circuit City, and one particular item caught my attention. CC was offering a refurbished laptop computer system and had it priced at $439.97. I went to look at what was being offered at this price and was actually surprised that this system was fairly well equipped. What was also surprising is that it is a 17″ laptop with the following features:

The Acer Aspire AS7540-1284 Laptop PC is the machine that does more!

The Acer Aspire AS7540-1284 Laptop PC is packed with power for productivity or play. It uses an AMD Athlon X2 Dual Core M300 2.0GHz processor and 3GB of DDR2 memory to give you plenty of muscle to take on demanding tasks like intense multitasking or tough applications like the latest games. This laptop runs the Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit operating system so you can take advantage of the latest features, no matter what your purpose. It stores to a sizeable 320GB hard drive and lets you read and write CDs and DVDs with a DVD Super-Multi Dual Layer optical drive for more storage options. The Acer Aspire AS7540-1284 Laptop PC uses the ATI Radeon HD 4200 graphics processor for amazing visual performance with multimedia.

In addition the system came with Windows Home Premium 64 bit edition and was a fairly nice looking unit as well.

I then added the item to the shopping cart to check out the shipping cost. Standard 3 to 7 day shipping was free.

Also their were 40 reviews on the CC site in which the unit was scored an average of 4.8 out of 5 stars.

So my question is this. Would you buy this refurbished unit?

Comments welcome.
