Summary: I have been using this computer for 6 to 12 hours a day for 17 months. When I received it it had a bad RAM chip, which took a month and a half to get replaced. Then they sent a stick of desktop ram (which HP let me keep). That is the end of my complaints.
Summary: I really like this laptop. Performance wise it is really good - much better than I expected. The HP install of additional software is minorly intrusive, but it's easy to disable or uninstall the stuff that I didn't want.
Excerpt: I have been using this laptop for sometime now without any problem at all, it's got speed, stability and has never failed me not even for a single time, I initially went for Advent through the PC world, the two Advent's that were changed were all having fan problem, I guess may be the batch produced...
Excerpt: I find his laptop to be wonderful in it's price range. Speed? More than enough for music creation and watching vids. More than enough power for web surfing, and the detail reports I need to write ocassionally. My olny complaint is Vista itself.
