Summary: I was very pleased with the this product and it was well packaged and looked like new and worked perfectly. Whenever i decide to purchase another computer, i would surely purchase from this company again.
Excerpt: this is an excellent laptop, it is very easy to use and it has everything on it anyone could ever need. I'm not particularly good with technology and I found this simple and straight forward to use. I have had this laptop for over a year now and I haven't had a single problem with it. The screen is large enough to watch films and it is still small enough to comfortably carry around.
Summary: Got this as a replacement for another HP that developed a screen problem. Have had it for three years now. On the positive side, it works quite well. It is not for the heavy user, but it will get the job done. On the negative side, it has a tendency to heat up to quite high temperatures, and the battery life is not good. I had to replace it after two years, and the replacement (not genuine HP as HP did not have it) barely lasted a year.
Summary: This laptop is awful if you're looking for something other a machine to surf the web and use Microsoft Office. The battery life is abysmal, at best. 6 months after having this laptop, I couldn't use it without it remaining plugged in. There's no graphics card, it's very poor intergrated graphics which are laughable.
Overall , excellent value-for-money Laptop by HP-Compaq
