HP 355 G2 Notebook Review Update

 

Decent computer, good price. HP demands 369 Euros (~$458) for its 355 G2. The buyer gets an office laptop with two operating systems (Windows 7 Pro (64-bit), Windows 8 Pro (64-bit)), a quad-core processor, and a dedicated Radeon graphics core for the...

Matte screen, Decent keyboard, Low temperatures, Two maintenance covers, Good battery life, Two operating systems, Recovery DVD for Windows 8.1 Professional (64 bit)

Dark, low contrast screen w/ bluish cast, Fan can get very loud, 12-month warranty only

HP's 355 G2 is overall compelling. HP has added a well-conceived low-cost office laptop to its lineup. It provides a decent application performance and can offer good battery runtimes. The graphics core even allows playing some games. As appropriate...

Good for others but not me

 

Inexpensive, Works well, Windows 7 pro, very thin design and light.

The screen is not supported in a way that will last as a travel laptop. I am a tech for an IT company and when I received the laptop, I opened the screen and noticed that the 2 hinges that attached the screen to the body of the laptop were prone to...

Pretty Hard To Beat

 

How to make this laptop faster: download and run the free PC Decrapifier to remove all the HP and other bloatware. Run msconfig and turn off unnecessary startup programs. Finally, spend around seventy to eighty bucks for the 256 GB SSD of your choice...

Bought this on a Shell Schocker for just under $300 with free shipping and it's really hard to beat for the price. Usage is websurfing, email, MS Office, YouTube and other non-resource intensive tasks. No, don't try to play your games, edit video or...

The only con I can find after a month's usage relates to the touchpad, and it's not enough to drop an egg. This Synaptics pad uses two-finger scrolling (ala Mac) rather than the side and bottom bars on the touchpads of many laptops. If you don't keep...

Affordable and fast

 

Comes with a Quad Core AMD processor with quality Integrated Graphics. Access to ram for upgrade as well as to Disk for upgrade quite easy. Added an extra 4 gig stick of Ram and cloned disk to a Crucial 240g with ease ($130 in upgrades)and it flys...

No led backlight on the Keyboard. I missed that in my search.

Amazing Deal/Great Support!!

 

I had some clients purchase this along with an SSD to put into it. They had it shipped directly to me so that I could get all the bloatware off and install Win 10 on it. When the laptop was delivered, I put the SSD in and started loading the provided...

Great speed(with SSD installed) ; Very well built ; Nice looking display ; Very quiet ; Haven't tested the battery life yet

Misguided impression anyone still uses Windows

 

Cannot recommend this computer to anyone looking to use a modern OS unless they are willing to wipe it completely for installation.

It was cheap and still had internal DVD

HP is under the misguided impression people still use Windows. I own somewhere between half a dozen and a dozen machines. I keep one Windows partition around only because I haven't upgraded my glucose meter to a modern one with Linux software for data...

Here's to the Intel Snobs

 

Lucky #7 windows Pro x64 is what caught my attention on this notebook. Likely will never upgrade it to 8.1 but the included license and install disk s a plus. The notebook comes stock with one stick of 4GB low voltage DDR3, very easy to add one more...

Amazing value for just over $300 that I paid ; With a replaced SSD, disk data transfer achieves a WEI of 7.9 ; Very impressive CPU and memory performance speed roughly equivalent to an i5 with a WEI of 6.7 ; Very good graphics performance for a notebook

Display panel is basic with not great black levels ; Finger print reader option is pictured but of course not included, I would have paid a few extra $ for it. Had to remove 1 star for inadvertent deception
