Nice Fast Machine! Good Laptop!

 

Great computer. HP laptops are good. I guess the price is right for what you are getting which includes good battery life, nice 17 inch screen(1440x900), super Multi drive, webcam and a microphone which picks up the slightest noise.

Fast Machine with the vista operating system ; Pretty good battery life. Nice Screen,webcam, microphone and more

Lots of unwanted junk software. Removal of all these unwanted software will make the machine work faster. No bluetooth

I bought this notebook in January 2008 at Circuit City for $899.00. Five days later it was on sale for $768. Needless to say I went back for the difference. No problem at all from Circuit City :-). As for the notebook it replaced my Toshiba Satellite...

Affordable, efficient and fast. Bright clear screen. Aesthetically pleasing. Great sound.

Loaded with tons of crapware.
