Summary: I bought this Laptop because it is small and handy. It has high performance. It has a super fast DVD Writer! I however do not really like the squeezed keyboard, and the fact that the finger print drivers were not working. The Laptop also lacks a web cam which make it difficult to use to Skype! On overall, it is a great gadget. It competes favourably with other Laptops.
Summary: I bought this laptop so I could do my writing while on my daily commute. It's small and sturdy so I don't need to worry when stowing it in my bag. It has a few different touch sensitive shortcuts so I can adjust the volume, turn wifi on and off, and some other things by just touching the panel. It came loaded with Windows 7 so thankfully I dodged the Vista bullet and it's powerful enough to run the software I need without any painful delays.
Summary: I bought this for my husband to do his everyday work at home. This was his choice and he went for 2nd hand one as this computers are normally very good and reliable. (compared withe the Samsung notebook he was already having was giving him a very difficult time) The laptop arrived as described with an original case, thanks. There were little scratch marks what you can expect from old computers like this. But it wasn't a problem at all. The battery life is also good.
Conclusion: HP is very good in al its features ie speed, design, processor size and other applications. But the most worst thing is about it is its battery life and processing/programming of the antivirus uses.
