a happy purchase


It's ironic that all my previous personal laptops have been HP, Pavilion, NC6000, DV7, and all my work laptops are Dell, and all my desktops are Dell. So far this one is the best and also the cheapest. I kept thinking to change to other brand but...

Win7 pro, 14" screen (no glare), HP security features, fingerprint to logon is convenient, 500G HD, 4GB ram x1 is easy to expand to 12GB for VM, XP, ubuntu etc, no heat, no noise, light comparably, HDMI port for external LCD looks even better than 40"...

screen is not bright(this is one of the biggest shortcomings of HP), particularly looks dark under natural light, the battery is very weak though you don't feel heat anywhere, the bootup is slower compared to my work laptop E6510 with win7 pro but a...

A great deal, but be prepared for some minor gripes


Bought this for my fiance to replace her 4.5 year old Mac Book Pro There is plenty bloatware installed, but most of it gives you the option to hide it away. First system startup/configuration took about 10minutes, not too bad. I'm impressed with the...

Chassis is high quality and very nice looking ; Laptop responds very fast (very nice i5 processor) ; Integrated graphics perform general windows task with ease ; Specs are very good in this price range (I paid 480 USD, on sale) ; WiFi connection is...

Monitor isn't the highest quality, but it's not horrible (at least it's antiglare) ; keyboard keys are stiff and square (maybe you will like this) ; track pad is small (not the smallest I've seen however), left and right click are stiff ; Single Ram...

Excellent deal


I didn't notice any strangeness in the touchpad buttons like the previous reviewer.

Decent build quality ; Not too much junk software ; Nice keyboard ; Two finger scroll is handy

Nothing so far

Love It!!


In the past, I was leery to purchase any PC from HP. But I feel that they have now redeemed themselves and are back to making excellent quality equipment for the I.T. professional.

This is a perfect laptop for the I.T. security professional. It's small and light enough to carry everywhere yet not be a delicate piece of equipment. With the expandable 8GB of RAM, 500GB hard drive and i5 processor, it's large enough and fast enough...

Once I installed linux on this thing, I booted to an error reporting the hard drive was not detected. UEFI was off! Fortunately the next morning it booted normally. However, every few months I will get that error message at boot. Everytime I've been...

Keboard keys are sturdy. Good size. HDMI + VGA. LED backlight. Wireless is signal is good

The touchpad and buttons are not 100%. I have to tap hard or tap in a different location on the touchpad sometimes. This usually happens when there is an anomoly on the touchpad, but that is not the case. The touchpad buttons need to be pressed in the...

Awesome product!


It took three days for this device to reach me. When I uncovered it, I was with my Apple-products-only-good friend. His facial expressions told me more than the words, the laptop was amazingly beautiful. Having owned HP(Presario M), Dell (Latitude),...
