Summary: I bought this PC with mind to replace my 6 years old ACER ASPIRE to this one.After an one hour usage I was wondered-HP Compaq CQ58-bf9WM 15.6" is twice slower than my old Acer. I upgraded RAM until 4GB, but HP still was slow as before. I think,main problem is AMD C-60 1 GHz processor.
Summary: I loved how it didnt have any of the drivers nescssary and how its packaging looked like a 5 yr old packed it and I love love the incorrect drivers installed... tho I found someone who could help me because if i hadnt i would be stuck with a big peice of plastic...
Summary: I bought this low-end computer to use with simple programs like Word or Excel. However, it is just so slow in the configuration it is sold in. The technical specs of this computer are not adapted to Windows 8, which makes simple actions like launching a browser so slow. Arm yourself with patience. Furthermore, I tried to upgrade to Windows 8.1, supposedly better.

Summary: I bought this laptop for my 11 year old, with the hope that it would be an upgrade from her ageing Pentium 2.8ghz desktop which runs XP. If anything, this laptop is a step backwards in terms of speed and overall user experience. Windows 8 runs slow on this thing, every app you open seems to take an age to load, not slick at all. Games don't play smoothly even on the lowest graphics settings.
Summary: The wireless connection would not work properly. I could receive inward wireless signal from BT but unable to send outward signal as requested to by BT over the phone. Instruction leaflet totally inadequate. As Windows 8 is so very different from XP I was unable to apply existing knowledge to see if the problem was resolveable, so I returned the unit.
Excerpt: себе бы я такой бук не купил!! и никому не советую!
Pros: дешевый (12900 руб. с DOS)
Cons: - ГЛАВНОЕ! очень мелкие надписи на кнопках!! особенно русские символы и функциональные кнопки F1-F12 - противный маркий глянец на крышке, под ладошками у клавиатуры и на кнопках тача - торчит длинный штеккер зарядки - нет блютуз - гремит кнопка снятия аккумулятора - люфтит крышка привода - индикатор жесткого диска где-то светит точкой слева внизу.... затерялся...
