HP Compaq nx7300 Review


So why on earth would you consider this laptop? Well, like I said before the nx7300 is not for everyone. The appeal of this notebook is the build quality, reliability, durability, and affordability. The NX7300 is arguably on the upper echelon of the...

Excellent build quality ; Relatively lightweight for a 15.4in laptop ; Excellent keyboard and mouse pad ; Core 2 Duo processors ; Thin ; Cost efficient ; Professional appearance

Lacking ports ; Screen viewing angles ; Screen resolution of 1280*800 ; No premium parts like fingerprint reader, Bluetooth, ambient light sensor

Not recommended for everyone, design wise there is very few flaws if any. But lacks items you might miss like a media reader, Bluetooth, additional USB ports, and DVI port. But for those looking for an affordable business laptop that is durable,...

HP NX7300


Nice touch to keyboard, good screen, well-written instruction booklet, just the spec. I wanted at a good price.

Screen brightness adjuster didn't work and some other minor faults necessitated warranty return. A 4th USB port would be useful.
