NOT a geek


This laptop does exactly what I need it to do with no problem. I LOVE my portable computer and use it all the time now. The desktop is only for possible emergencies. My brother suggested this site for purchasing something reasonably and he was quite...

My problem comes in with attempting to use a warranty that supposedly would totally replace my computer if needed within the space of 2 years after the original warranty expired. The little spring in my battery compartment was broken the very first...

So Many HPs


It works great. Haven't had any problems with it yet

The extra keys on side of the main keyboard tend to throw you off from time to time when typing

Bought on sale. For those of you complaining about the restore partition being to large. I guess that is true. I remember it being larger than normal. For users complaining there is no Windows OS DVD or Restore discs come with this notebook. I am not...

Decent laptop. I bought it on sale for some one. I set it up for them and they like it

The media keys are aligned on the left of the keyboard. It is annoying because it offsets where you are use to the tab, shift, ctrl is etc

The speakers had no volume. It didn't bother my wife too much as she regularly uses earbuds when she is using this. I had replaced the screen after she closed it on a jelly bean but that was several months ago...

When it worked, it had a nice long battery life

My wife bought this laptop for her business in Feb. Now that it's August the laptop on regular shutdown won't restart. No, POST on power up. Shuts down within 4 seconds

Excellent Mahine


Very impressed with this computer. Speed is awesome. Runs great. No problems as of yet. Screen size is quite good. Only caveat...I don't care for the keyboard layout. Keys are not located where I'm used to finding them.

Great computer for the price


It's fast, I didn't like the speaker keys on the left side of the keyboard cause it made it dificult to find the control key with my pinky. For the price I paid 399 couldn't be beat. After the second or third day the thing started locking up and...

Great Portable PC


Thus far, I have not had any complaints about this unit. Great quality, looks pretty, great performance. Plugged the computer into my TV through HDMI and sends out a beautiful picture and is not choppy at all. One minor thing is that the screen...
