Good Laptop, Worth the $$$!


I have had my laptop for a few months now and its well worth the money. I have had an Asus laptop as well as a full size HP laptop with Vista Home Premium. This laptop works much faster than both. The WLAN picks up on anything and everything and has...

GREAT Product but for Ubuntu, not Windows


We got the netbook and my original plan was to install Ubuntu Netbook Remix. The Windows XP Home that it comes with, plus all of the HP software they put on it used up 8GB of the 16GB it has. For fun, I stripped down Windows XP PRO and installed that,...

Great product for the price


Knowing that this was a refurb netbook, I knew I wasn't ordering a quad-core with 8gb ram or a brand new machine. It is great for what it is. I promptly removed WinXP in favor of Linux Mint 8. It runs a ton better and is 100% functional out of the box....

Absolute Piece of Garbage!


DO NOT REPEAT DO NOT purchase this product. First, for just approximately $40.00 more you can buy a netbook that has a real 160GB HD; and memory expandable to at least 2GB. The 16GB solid state drive is simply not worth the space it occupies. Second,...

Do not buy refurbished


Bought in Sept. 09 turned on, set up as gift for wife. Wrapped for Xmas. She opened it and the screen would not work. And HP does all service through India for junk made in China, and charges like it was made in America with American service. HP is now...
