Great little laptop for the length of the warranty but...
26 January 2012
Summary: I loved the price and was more than satisfied with the performance. Obviously not a gaming machine but for routine day to day stuff that wasn't too graphics intensive it was great. Three months past the warranty the hard drive crashes. I went to the HP website to buy a replacement hard drive and it tells me the original is no longer recommended and they have an alternate they recommend.
Summary: Nice design, nice big bright screen. Of course I didn't expect to run high end graphics. But when I open iTunes and scroll, the album covers get all "smeared" over one another, and in fact the song list doesn't get updated as a scroll. That's no good for 3 stars. I haven't seen this happen on any other computer. Please let me know if anyone else had the same problem.
Summary: This laptop is a bit slow, but I cant complain for $348. I bought a Compaq for my sister that was similar to this one, except it had the keypad and an extra 1GB of memory and I only paid an extra $30 and it was worth it. It doesnt feel as cheap as this one and its much faster.
