25/07/2010 Anthony: Hi, I was wondering about a couple of things about this laptop and all your refirb laptops in general, firstly regarding this aspire 5542 is this the model with the bio-metric fingerprint scanner? and what is the extent of any damage to the machine? the price seems really low for what it is, i was hoping no damage to the screen or around it, it just got me wondering.

Lastly About all Stocked refirbished laptops in general, when ordered will they come with all the factory software and settings (e.g acer laptops come with Empowering Technology) and when any laptop is ordered with 4GB of ram or more, I assume them to have a 64bit OS?

A bit wordy but i thank you in advance,
Anthony.

simon: If a laptop has 4GB of RAM it doesn't allways mean it has a 64 BIT operating system, however the model you are looking at does. There is no finger print reader and this laptop is basically as new in a box with a few very minor hair line scratches.
