Consumer review (

Pretty Good


I have ordered more RAM and I would suggest that as a necessity for this notebook. I don't understand why with Vista that manufacturers still ship with only 512mb ram. Also it doesn't have a PCMCIA slot in case you need one. Generally I'm very happy...

Nice screen, great built in speakers, really nice design black on the outside and dark gunmetal gray on the inside

This is an entry level notebook so it is not blazing fast, in fact it's pretty slow to startup but once it's going it's ok. Most of the HP pre-loaded software is useless only serves to slow the machine down more
