So guys i just bought my G73 RBBX05 from Cowboom.com for 930$ but 982$ including tax in shipping. It sold out within 3 hours of being availible. New egg was being a B!T*C* in stock add to cart? I am sorry there's an error out of stock....... then in stock raised from 870 to 890$ then out of stock in 20 minutes damn newegg godamn. Anyways i am going to get my G73 in about a week so i wanted to know what to expect of the condition of the item

In my experience with BB's 'openbox' (website and instore). The conditions drastically vary... so much so, that if you can't lay eyes on it directly, I'd not have recommended buying from them. Hopefully you'll get a decent deal, and the laptop won't be trashed.

Yeah i hope not it shipped today! 7-10 business days.................. UPS GROUND from CHINO to SAC california. dont know how that can take so long... anyways it says it comes with the manual so i think thats an indicator that the open boxer dude returned it within a day? I hope so i might post or make a video of me unboxing it

DAMN 13 LBS..... i hope they dont united package smash my package

just bought a BB refurbished G73JH ($850) and it had the typical graphics card GSOD problem, flashed the vbios and no GSOD yet since. great deal minus the little problem that has been addressed.
