Win 7

As of this moment, the thing’s screamer. Quick response. Clean unit.

Hoping for the best and if this works out – he can get me two more just like it.
Right on. Marc is a good honest guy and stands behind his work. The one I bought (and still have) from him had a so-so battery(he had told me beforehand) and I uppgraded and bought a 3 hour larger one. I think I've had mine 7 years or so without a problem. He also loaded a few cleaning programs on mine to do maintenance stuff. I'm not pc savvy at all.

I bought mine for $199, but his $300 and up pc's are dynamite.

I paid $100 for mine, maybe a 15 yo Satellite. But I don't have to run Windows so it works great.
