Summary: My first HP, but having bought several refurb'd desktops from Overstock with great success, decided to give this a try. Its primary use is for the managing a website and reunion information, highly portable, adequate screen size (I like huge widescreens, but this works fine), decent performance, great DVD/RW, excellent features. Machine arrived ready to configure, no issues whatsoever, a nice setup.
Summary: I paid more for a netbook a couple years ago and it had a smaller screen and was much slower than this HP. This computer is used for audiovisual editing. The screen has good color and contrast. The built-in speakers are OK for a laptop, but I use externals anyway. Battery life is average. But I really don't see a better bang for the buck anywhere and I might buy another one of these to replace another old laptop.
Summary: Received in great, like new condition. Powered up with no glitches and the battery is in great condition. No dead pixels in the screen and the display is very clear. In all, I am very happy with my purchase.
Summary: I was looking for a no-frills laptop to run Office applications, browsing, email, and a few of my older games on Windows 7. This thing fit the bill at a great price. It was all setup, packaged well, shipped very quickly.
Love this laptop, exceded my expectations and the price was awesome

Summary: I love this Laptop, speed is phenomenal, it was all set up for me I turned it on and was enjoying it out of the box. This was a replacement my old laptop died. The only thing I don't like is not about this laptop is any laptop its that I'm disabled so my arms rest on the laptop and it causes the laptop display to shut down it comes right back but I need a keyboard and mouse. But overall I highly recommend this laptop. Does everything I need it to do and more.
Liked it so well, I bought another one to replace my old desktop unit.
