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: It arrived in a timely matter. Out of the box, it looked brand new. It did not have a mark or anything showing it was a refurbished unit. It runs great, and is faster than I expected for such a great priced laptop. The ad states that it has an A4-4500 processor, as does the sticker on the bottom of the laptop. This is actually a typo. IT is an A4-5000. AMD does not make and A4-4500. As others have mentioned, it's only real downfall is that it has no USB 3.0.
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.
