Excerpt: Well , I like the HP Laptop a lot. Working fine. It is well worth the money that we paid for it. Easy access to Internet and working very good. Clean and quickly prints. Would buy another refurbished Laptop from Staples if needed.
Summary: Meh. The screen on this is very dark, and visible only if you're directly in front of it. My daughter uses it, but I'd probably go insane if it were mine. It runs fine and functions, and she is content to use it. But if you're buying it for an adult, I'd pass.
Excerpt: Heavy and slow. Doesn't like the internet. Dvd/cd tray doesn't come all of the way out so you have to wriggle it out. Then wipe up the mess it makes as it knocks over stuff on the right side of your desk. Slow. Didn't have anything on when it came so I didn't have to remove excess programs and trial offers. Slow. Has some fun stuff like text to voice. I haven't explored all of it yet. Slow.
Summary: I really like this computer. It's super fast, and the battery holds a charge just fine, which was my major concern after reading some of the other reviews. I believe this is a much better computer than I could have gotten for the same money had I bought a new one. I'm glad I took a chance on it. Oh, by the way, the one I received is silver rather than black, but I actually .like this color better. I'm really pleased.

Summary: For the price this is an excellent laptop. I bought mine used but is has performed flawlessly. If I had to do it over I would have bought a more up to date laptop with more memory (this comes with only 2 gb) and a more modern keyboard if it had Windows 7. But, I really like mine and it did come with Windows 7 ( I hate Windows 8).
