Summary: I find the 255 from HP to be one of the best computers I have ever owned. I was afraid of Win 8 because of all the bad publicity I received from friends and other users. I like Win 8 and I was a lover of Win XP. I thought I would never like the system. Boy was I wrong. Im a lover of this PC, it does all I will ever need to do and then some. I recommend it to everyone needing an inexpensive laptop. I have nothing bad to say about it.
Summary: Had it not been for the value the wireless might have almost been a deal-breaker had I known about it. The addition of Windows 8 makes it more difficult to remove software that is undesired. Overall it's an excellent system for movie watching or just getting work done.
Pros: Good value, Large screen size, Clear image - Compared to other computers you get a lot of features/hardware compared to how much you're paying over a netbook for example.
Cons: First and foremost some of the bloat-ware such as software from Wild Tangent and the option to use SkyDrive programs cannot be removed (especially if you upgrade to Windows 8.1). The wireless is very weak. At about 6-8 feet away from the router while still in the same room I drop down to about 3/5 of the available signal strength. Very disappointing if you don't happen to work in the same room as your router.
Summary: i bought this 4 months ago when i needed a new laptop. i went with this model because it was on sale for $300. this is my 3rd hp pc and i always had good service from them. my last laptop was a dell that had so many problems right out the box that i swore i'd never buy another. my only complaint is with the operating system. unfortunately they only had windows 8 laptops for sale.it comes without a paper manual.just trying to set up the laptop is frustrating.
Pros: lightweight,has 3 usb ports, an hdmi port, a vga port and ethernet port.
Summary: Received my new Hp windows 8 laptop within the time given for delivery.. It is quite easy to use once you get the hang of it. I'm glad i changed to this one from my old Windows 7. It seems much faster too.
Summary: Lo primero de todo, como entiendo que quien se va a un ordenador de estas características es un usuario básico, escribiré una opinión destinada a tales compradores. El portátil físicamente es muy bonito, tiene una construcción sólida y unos colores muy buenos, tanto por fuera (gris carbón), como por dentro (es un color metalico oscuro muy bueno).
Atencion al cliente de pccomponentes
Cons: El logo no se ilumina, ni si quiera es una chapa, solo pintado, aunque queda muy bien, la verdad.
Summary: buen producto calidad-precio de hp. las prestaciones que tiene son muy útiles y la configuración es facilísima. además va muy rápido y de momento todo funciona correctamente, los altavoces, el teclado, y los programas se instalan bastante rápidos.
Pros: me ha gustado mucho el portátil, relación calidad precio perfecta.
Cons: tengo que hacer un cursillo para aprender windows 8.
